NATO condemns Moscow’s “malicious activities”

NATO countries are concerned about “malicious activities” by Russia “recently carried out on the territory of the Alliance”. They nevertheless assure that these will not “dissuade them from continuing to support Ukraine”.

In a statement, the Allies denounced “hostile state activities affecting Czechia, Estonia, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and the United Kingdom.”

“The incidents in question are part of the intensification of activities that Russia is carrying out throughout the Euro-Atlantic area, and in particular on the territory of the Alliance, using intermediaries” .

“These include acts of sabotage, acts of violence, cyber activities, electronic disruptions, disinformation campaigns and other hybrid activities,” they detail. These “hybrid activities (…) constitute a threat” to their security, they add.

Promise of response

“We will act individually and collectively in response to these actions and we will continue to consult closely,” they continue. “We will ensure that the Alliance and Allies are prepared to provide deterrence and defense against hybrid activities or attacks.”

“We condemn Russia’s attitude and we call on it to respect its international obligations, as the Allies do. Russia’s actions will not dissuade us from continuing to support Ukraine,” they conclude.

Pro-Russian propaganda

At the end of March, Prague revealed the discovery by Czech intelligence services of a network orchestrated by Moscow which spread pro-Russian propaganda on Ukraine via the Voice of Europe website, and is suspected of having corrupted MEPs.

In the United Kingdom, authorities said in late April that a 20-year-old British man had been charged in London under the national security law for allegedly organizing attacks against “businesses linked to Ukraine.” .

The French Minister for Europe Jean-Noël Barrot recently indicated that France and other European countries were “pounded by Russian propaganda” in the run-up to the European elections, which will take place from 6 to June 9 in the EU.
