Poland and Holland to fight Russian propaganda
PR dla Zagranicy
Poland will cooperate with Holland to create a Russian-language TV channel in an attempt to combat Russian propaganda.
Polish Foreign Minister Grzegorz Schetyna said the main aim of the project is to combat Russian propaganda Europe-wide.
“This will be something which will enforce true and just information instead of a language of propaganda and aggression,” Schetyna said.
The project would work in addition to a media portfolio – TV, information channels, internet portals and radio stations – which are already operating in Europe.
According to Schetyna, the channel would be fully functional in a year, and would be targeted mostly at Russians and Russian-speaking minorities in eastern-European countries.
As it is a Polish-Dutch project, Minister Schetyna will present it in Brussels together with his Dutch counterpart Bert Koenders. The two countries, however, also count on the involvement of other EU members. (tf/rg)
