A recommendation by the European Parliament calls Russia “the main source of disinformation in Europe” and appeals for increased funding for the European Union’s antipropaganda East StratCom Task Force. European lawmakers late last year granted the East StratCom Task Force 1.1 million euros ($1.3 million) annually from the EU budget and it is likely that the group will get a marginal increase this year. The recommendation was passed with an overwhelming majority of votes.
