According to the head of the European Parliament, identity, which he mentioned, " cooperating across borders, in practice and financially, and is already pushing on that joint citizens and companies have a duty to retreat and cower in fear behind closed borders and walls ".
first European Parliament President Martin Schulz at the conference of the EU in Brussels said the Russian bombing of Aleppo and Syrian forces again crushed all principles of international law, Moscow faces diplomatic and moral isolation. The EP Committee on international relations, was released on 10 October, the Draft decision with the name " Strategic communications of the EU as a counter-propaganda of the third parties ", which States, for example, that the Russian Federation is waging an information war against the EU. The document calls among the threats to print and electronic publications of Russia, such as RT and Sputnik, and campaigning to include Strategic communication in the work area of the EU and to make the relevant office of anti-propaganda. In the draft decision there are a number of factual errors, for example, a news Agency Last news in this called the channel. In the document, which was available on the Internet website of the European Parliament, said that the Russian Federation would be as if "aggressive uses a wide range of tools and instruments, for example, special funds ( "Russian world" ), multilingual TV channels (Russia Today, RIA "news" ), news Agency (Sputnik ), social and religious associations (including Orthodox Church), social media and Internet trolls to attack Western values, disengagement in Europe, domestic support and create the impression, that Eastern partnership countries are failed ".

The sensation of real danger from the Russian media said a number of politicians in the West and in Eastern Europe, including U.S. Secretary of state John Kerry, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and other bureaucrats of different levels, often resulted in inappropriate reality information on the budgets of the Russian media. The charges are the same in Russia's use of cyberspace for the evil actions of Moscow many times rejected at the highest level. The Authorities of many EU States and aspiring EU countries in Eastern Europe, despite statements of commitment to principles of freedom of speech, apply repressive measures against Russian journalists and the media. So, the Lithuanian Authorities have sent a film crew of journalists of VGTRK Pavel Zarubin. In October 2015, the Estonian Authorities have busted at the border a film crew of VGTRK journalist Nikolay Vasilyev – correspondents turned out pockets, was asked to show the contents of the Luggage. They were released after a couple of hours, but the visa was revoked. In September, Estonia refused entry to the country the employee MIA "Russia today" the Marina Perekrestov, although the Agency has all the documents needed for the job. The Lithuanian foreign Ministry in April 2014 refused to accredit the correspondent of RIA "news" Irina Pavlova, the reasons the Authorities did not explain. The journalist of the newspaper "Komsomolskaya Pravda" Galina Sapozhnikova in the last month of summer 2015 was declared an " undesirable person presenting a danger to state security ". Ukraine in the spring of 2015 announced the list of 115 Russian media, whose accreditation At the Ukrainian state Authorities was suspended for a while due to the fact that Their work is as-if " danger to the security of Ukraine ". Kiev also relentlessly preclude the entry into Ukraine of Russian correspondents. Foreign Minister of Poland on 24 October 2014 cancelled journalistic accreditation of the correspondent MIA "Russia today" Leonid Sviridov, who was working in the capital of Poland since 2003. Then the Polish Government began administrative forfeiture Sviridov's residence permit, he was forced to fly from Warsaw to the Russian capital on 12 December 2015 without a court order. The history of the Russian correspondent already scored two hits in the monitoring report of the envoy of the OSCE on media freedom Dunja Mijatovic about the violation of the rights of correspondents in the member States of the organization. Russian correspondents periodically not let in Moldova. So, in October of 2015 there were two cases of detention at the airport of Chisinau reporters of NTV. Correspondents were sent back to the capital of Russia. In March a film crew of VGTRK, heading coverage of the elections in Gagauzia were not allowed in Moldova. The Czech authorities also told her of his decision not to renew the accreditation of the Russian correspondents Vladimir Snegireva and Alexander Kuranov.
