Supporting Terrorism Online

While Russia aims to use a proven strategy and see the lifting of sanctions by the EU, the Kremlin’s ultimate concern is to restore former imperial greatness.
Moscow is desperately trying to use the coronavirus period to gain political preferences from Europe, which is primarily busy with the response to the consequences of the pandemic crisis.
COVID-19 has forced Russia to change its tactics, although its strategy to weaken the European Union, undermine Euro-Atlantic solidarity and revive the empire remains unchanged.
Along with political and economic leverage, Russia is actively increasing information pressure within the EU with the aim to support the gradual lifting of sanctions and the easing of the country’s political isolation.
