Vulin: EU Resolution on Russian Media ‘Insult to Daesh Victims’

SOURCESputnik

BELGRADE -The resolution adopted by the European Parliament that compared Russian media to Daesh propaganda, is an insult to the victims of terrorists and common sense, Serbian Labor Minister Aleksandar Vulin said Thursday.

On Wednesday, the European Parliament voted in favor of a resolution on countering Russian media outlets, such as the Sputnik news agency and the RT broadcaster. As many as 304 voted in favor the document, 179 voted against and 208 abstained. With a total of 691 officials taking part in the vote, less than half supported the resolution, which draws parallel between Russian media and the propaganda disseminated by Daesh (Islamic State/ISIS/ISIL).

“It is frightening that the European Parliament equated the Russian media to Daesh propaganda, this is an insult to Daesh victims, their families and common sense,” Vulin said as quoted by the Tanjug news agency.

The minister added that it was hard to believe that “such an important institute as the European Parliament allowed itself to determine which media outlets are trustworthy … and which are not, and especially equate them with Daesh.”

The resolution said that Sputnik and RT posed a danger to European unity and called for extra European Commission funding for counter-propaganda projects.

  1. EU and the USA are failing empires crumbling under the weight of their own kama. Instead of using economic properity to influence their global agenda. They decided on the use of bombs, force, destruction and abuse of power to further their agenda. Resulting in millions of deaths and destruction of countries that never once was a threat to these powerful counties. The state of the world today is the horrendous actions taken by these powerful nations and the reactions that are generated by the unpunished crimes against humanity. Nature has always been there to balance the destruction of humanity.
