On May 2, Euronews, as a member of the EUvsDisinfo, recently released two unprecedented reports in Chinese to counter the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s disinformation propaganda.
It is reported that both reports in Chinese were on fake news about the Russian-Ukrainian war. According to a spokesperson from EUvsDisinfo, the two articles in Chinese was intended to provide Chinese-speaking audiences with fact-based information to help raise awareness of disinformation surrounding the war in Ukraine.
At the same time, the U.S. State Department issued a statement saying that the Communist China government and State-controlled Media, frequently amplify Russian propaganda, conspiracy theories and disinformation. The propaganda rationalizes Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and undermines trust in the U.S. and other countries, as well as in democratic institutions and independent media.
In light of this, European parliamentarians called in early March for the EU to impose sanctions on foreign interference and disinformation campaigns, namechecking both Russia and Communist China.
The EU has slowly realized, during the COVID-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine, that it was not only Russia but also Communist China that have been sending anti-EU messages to the Europeans, said Ivana Karaskova, founder and leader of MapInfluenceEU.
The good news, according to Karaskova, is that the bloc has already legislated to make it harder for non-EU countries to invest in European media.
In addition, EUvsDisinfo now has a dedicated team focusing specifically on Communist China, with three experts. This team works closely with the EEAS’ China division and other relevant organizations.
