"We are now faced with a hybrid new type of war, weapons of this war are not only heavy artillery and tanks, and propaganda in the style of Goebbels from Russia in the media. According to my information, the EU has set up a special force to counter this propaganda. A lot has changed in the world, and Russia is better able to give all white as black, and square - like oval. The main problem is to find means to counter this propaganda, " said Yatsenyuk, speaking Wednesday night at London's Royal Institute of international Affairs (Chatham house).
