MOSCOW, November 23. /TASS/. The European Parliament’s resolution on the Russian media’s activities proves the fact that the Western countries’ perception of democracy has been degrading, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.
"If they take this decision (on fighting ‘Russia’s propaganda’), that means we are witnessing political degradation of democratic ideas in the Western society," Putin told reporters.
Earlier on Wednesday, the European Parliament adopted a resolution aimed at combating other countries’ propaganda, including Russia. The resolution mentions Russian TV channel RT, Sputnik agency, Russkiy Mir (or Russian World) Foundation and the Federal Agency for the Commonwealth of Independent States, Compatriots Living Abroad and International Humanitarian Cooperation (Rossotrudnichestvo).
In October, the European Parliament's Committee on Foreign Affairs approved a report on combating propaganda which named the Russian media one of the main threats.
