MOSCOW, February 11. /TASS/. EU recognizes the efficiency of what it views as ‘Russian propaganda’ as it is hastily trying to knock up countermeasures on its part, the Russian ambassador to the EU, Vladimir Chizhov said on Wednesday in an interview with Rossiya’24 television channel.
"Some people do notice deplorable tendencies in the sphere of human rights in Ukraine but I wouldn’t say everyone does," Chizhov said. "I think those who do are in the minority while others confine their opinions to the propagandistic cliches about the 'annexation of Crimea by Russia' and 'Russian aggression'."
"But still there are knowledgeable people among the European officials and MEPs and they express sound judgments in the brims of official functions - only in the brims, not openly for everyone," Chizhov said.
He disagreed with the opinion that Russia is losing the information war to the West.
"I wouldn’t say we’re losing," Chizhov said. "We’re conducting a very heavy ‘trench war’ in the information sphere. The hasty moves our Western partners are making to organize counteraction to what they see as ‘Russian propaganda’ offers a tentative proof of this. They seem to be recognizing our efficiency this way."
