Summary/Abstract: The purpose of the present report is to outline the extent of the disinformation war between Russia and the EU (this does not mean, of course, that the centre of disinformation wars against the EU is, as a rule, always and only related with Moscow; such actions begin very often. from Islamist sites), its specific manifestations and the main "battlefields". This study provides a brief overview of the activities of the East StratCom Team, the Strategic Communications Task Force to the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, the European External Action Service (EEAS), its effectiveness and recognizability. It also shows how the main suspected opponent in the face of Russia reacts on the other side of the "front" and outlines some possible directions for further counteraction not only on "Brussels" level but also on national level in the member states.
