Lithuanian Foreign Minister calls on Europeans to step up the fight against Russian propaganda

Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius stated in an interview with the newspaper Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung that EU countries should make greater efforts to fight against “Russian propaganda” and prepare for an information war with Russia. 

The Minister asserted that the West “still underestimates Russia’s informational influence” while Eastern European countries are not the only ones under “Moscow’s attack.” Linkevičius called for the continuation of a strict sanctions policy against Russia. 

Earlier, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin called on European countries to tighten sanctions against Russia.
