According to a study by the EU, Germany is more in the focus of Russian disinformation than any other country in the European Union.
There are systematic campaigns both at the political level and through the media that are close to the Kremlin, according to a report published by the European Union’s External Action Service in Brussels. Moscow creates an intellectual image of Germany in which there are a few reasonable voices in a chorus of irrational “Russophobia”. Since the end of 2015, more than 700 cases of Russian disinformation affecting the Federal Republic have been collected in a database. France, on the other hand, was attacked a good 300 times, Italy around 170 times and Spain more than 40 times.
