Russian attempts to meddle in the 2019 EP elections


Political Capital and its research partners (Jonas Syrovatka, Adam Lelonek, Grigorij Meseznikov) explored the narratives the Kremlin used to influence public opinion in Europe and, in particular, the Visegrád Group between 1 January 2019 and 30 June.

We used media monitoring software to identify the main narratives spread by official Kremlin mouthpieces and local pro-Kremlin media, focusing on how Russia-related issues (e.g., Ukraine) and EU institutions are depicted.

Moreover, we seek to formulate policy recommendations to aid the fight against disinformation.
