BRUSSELS, November 30. /TASS/. EU is setting up an ideological commando force that will fight with the bugbear of Russian propaganda, Vladimir Chizhov, the Russian ambassador to the EU said on Monday as he took the floor at the annual European Russian Forum at the European parliament.
"The EU executive agencies are creating a semblance of an ideological commando force for fighting the bugbear of Russian propaganda," he said.
"Quite naturally, we've encountered various forms of russophobia in European countries in the past, too," Chizhov said."However, the pretext of the importance of rebuffing the nonexistent 'hybrid threat' covers up the attempts to stamp out of public consciousness the perception of Russia as an integral part of European civilization that has more than once saved Europe from guaranteed ruining."
He indicated that someone is apparently trying "to build a wall of alienation and mistrust between our peoples."
