MOSCOW, November 29. /TASS/. Russia may take retaliatory measures in response to a resolution on countering propaganda passed by the European Parliament, which mentioned some Russian media outlets, Russian Presidential Spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told reporters on Tuesday.
"Without any doubt," he said when asked whether any steps in connection with this document are planned.
"The Kremlin spokesman emphasized that attempts to attack media and restrict freedom of expression are "a source of profound concern" and run counter to "the overall concept of democracy and freedom to receive information."
"Of course, attempts in some Western countries to restrict the audiences’ right to get alternative information compared to what is presented as the single source of truth give rise to concern. All that should be discussed thoroughly," he said.
On November 23, the European Parliament passed a resolution on EU strategic communication to counteract propaganda against it by third parties. The document drafted by Polish lawmaker Anna Fotyga mentioned the RT TV channel, the Sputnik news agency, the Russian World Foundation and the Russian Federal Agency for CIS Affairs, Compatriots Living Abroad and International Humanitarian Cooperation among the potential threats.
