Information manipulation campaigns have long been a part of Russia’s war machine toolkit, preparing public opinion and laying the ground for military operations. The EU has taken some action to prevent the Kremlin’s malign influence on its information space, the European Parliament also being a part of that effort. But as a year of full-scale Russian aggression against Ukraine clearly demonstrates, these measures were not enough to protect the EU from anti-democracy attacks. This article deals with the narratives of Russian propaganda targeted at the European Parliament, the goals of such information manipulation campaigns, and the role of some Members of the European Parliament in such campaigns. Nonetheless, the EP is the most proactive body in proposing policies to counter Russian propaganda.
