In a resolution adopted on November 23, the MEPs called for a stronger EU action in response to the Russian
and Islamic media campaigns. The document says that the messages of the adversaries, especially in social
networks, seek to split the EU, reads the report.

The resolution as a whole was supported by 304 MEPs, which is not such a big gure considering a general
amount of deputies (751). 179 MEPs opposed the document, while another 208 MEPs abstained.

Data show that there are clear di erences within the political groups of the European Parliament, in particular,
among the Liberals (ALDE) and Greens (Greens / EFA), as well as among the Social-Democrats (S&D).

Many members of the European Parliament voted on a national basis rather than according to the decision of
parliamentary groups: out of 69 Italian MEPs only eight supported the resolution. This gure is even lower for
the French MEPs (only three of them supported the document) and the Greeks (none of the Greek MEPs backed
the resolution).

On the other hand, the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, as well as Germans, Belgians and Dutch have
mostly supported the document.

Even the party of Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban, Fidesz, voted in favor of a more intensive action in the
ght against anti-European propaganda.

It is also interesting that the critics of the EU, such as the Conservative Party in Britain, the Polish ”Law and
Justice”, and the Hungarian Fidesz, endorsed the ght against anti-European propaganda, while the more pro-
European parties, for example, the Italian Democratic Party (the party of Prime Minister Matteo Renzi) and
French Socialist Party of President Francois Hollande) failed to provide support for the document.

There was a split in the German coalition: while the Christian Democratic Union of Angela Merkel was a key
supporter of the resolution, the SPD chose not to approve it.
