As reported by Censor.NET citing UNIAN, Ambassador of Spain to Ukraine Gerardo Angel Bugallo Ottone said at the Ukrainian-Spanish forum of journalists.
According to the diplomat, Putin's powerful propaganda mill encounters no resistance at all. The ambassador says that no European institution, not a single agency is involved in propaganda because Europeans believe that their values are so great and evident that they do not need to be promulgated, but they actually do.
Speaking of propaganda as an element of the hybrid war, the ambassador expressed belief that it is not just an element of this war, but is its essential and key instrument.
He said that the efforts should be fostered to struggle for minds, hearts and souls of the international community members because the Ukrainians were acutely aware of the situation in their country so far.
As reported, the MEPs adopted a resolution to counter propaganda spread by the Russian media naming Sputnik news agency and Russia Today TV channel as the most dangerous of them.
