The new rising threat: EU Information Blockade

We are edging towards full scale information and media war. Yes, you can still read this article in the territory of European Union, but how long? Concerned international discussion has risen from the past week EU draft resolution, which was passed in European parliament on Wednesday.

Russia's Foreign Ministry's spokesperson, Maria Zakharova, warned that "if EU begins censoring Russian media, then we will of course take measures in response”. Her warning is based on the EU-report, which was voted in favor on Wednesday: EU strategic communication to counteract propaganda against it by third parties.

The European Parliament voted on a non-legislative resolution which urges the EU to “respond to information warfare by Russia,” with RT and Sputnik news agency branded the most dangerous “tools” of “hostile propaganda.” Zakharova branded the document as “paranoia” and part of “the ongoing demonization of Russia,” adding that it is filled with “made-up messages, myths,” and reflects “the ideology which has been cultivated towards Russia recently.”

“It is irresponsible to equate Russian media organizations with terrorist groups such as Islamic State. It is irresponsible to mix up Russian media with Kremlin-controlled media,” said Ricardo Gutierrez, General Secretary of the European Federation of Journalists (EFJ), describing the tone of the document as “worrying” and reminiscent of "the Cold War climate.”

Basically situation is, that the EU accuses Russian media of what European media always does, like the Sputnik wrote earlier this week. But why now?

The EU is in middle of large scale militarization - against the Russia and its allies. Just on Tuesday the EU parliament voted in favor of creating the new EU Army, which can also take the lead in the battlefields over NATO. On Thursday Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko was in top level meetings with the EU leadership, and there were no demands for Ukrainian troops to cease fire in the only war in Europe. 

Donetsk People's Republic has been shelled by Kiev forces over 6,000 times only over the past week, but it does not cause any concerns for the politicians in European Union, and they openly favor the "success of Ukraine". It starts certainly look so, that the EU is in very dangerous process to take lead over NATO and USA in military actions against Russian world.

Rising threat: Building of the EU Information Blockade

What we can see from the very hostile draft resolution is, that so called "third parties" are labeled as enemies of European Union, and it's "liberal democratic values". There is a rising demand, that EU should protect its borders from these third parties, meaning that only pro-EU mainstream media and western controlled liberal journalists should be accepted to deliver information from abroad to the citizens of European Union.  

Russia, and most of it's key allies, those countries, which are supporting the idea about world multipolarism against globalist demands for the world hegemony, are already targets in the western information war, economic sanctions and different kind of blockade's, like Syria and the Donbass people's republics.

In principle, everything what opposes EU federalism is labeled as "Putinism", and Russians who are living in EU-countries as dual citizens, are in great threat to get labeled as spies and national threats, just like happened this week in Finland.

So, what opposes "western liberal democracy", like the patriotism and demand for nations rights to have their independence, is a threat to globalist western centralized power structure, which prefers full control from whole western population. Like its said, "first comes the information, then comes the action".

By the new EU communication strategy, EU demands full control from the information what is produced abroad, so that all the following actions will be also led by them, and only by them. At the same time preparations to blacklist all oposing journalists has already been happening, and new NATO-led Hybrid War Centers has been formed to many European locations.

The control of "hostile propaganda", produced abroad by third parties

Here from the Donetsk City, which is defending and resisting western backed Ukrainian occupation, we can easily see from the new EU communication strategy, that new kind of great wall, the EU information blockade, is emerging to the cyber space. They want to block us from the internet, social media and web communities.

Its just obvious, that hostile globalist idea is to do everything what is possible to separate us from each others, block our connection and cut our information channels, so that you will not know anymore what is really happening here, in the conflict zone between the East and West. The truth is what they are most afraid of, and Russia with its allies in defense, like us here in Donbass people's republics, are giving for you just that.

What is threatening the world, is new EU wall of censorship, which is not proposed to set only between the EU and Russia, but all around the West. Propaganda can be used in many ways, and one of the most effective is the silence: What every wall makes, when those are build thick, and high enough, is the silence. All the things what you dont know about, doesn't cause any affect in you.

Certainly those anti-Globalist "third parties", which are giving some other than "liberal democratic" views from the world events, are existing also in EU-territory, but because of need to keep the illusion from the western freedom of speech, the EU elite can do just little at the moment to silence western alternative media sources. But dont be surprised when that will follow, in the future steps to take control all the public discussions.

What the EU elite thinks that they can do, is to silence all the main information sources of challenging views, and by doing that, at least limit the growing process of mass awakening among western population. We can expect by the end of year 2017 growing lists of blocked websites from countries like Russia, Venezuela, Iran, Syria and China. We in DONi News certainly will be blamed also as "Russian propaganda", even we factually are independent news agency in the free Donbass. I am expecting huge challenges from EU aggressions.

Generally situation in the West today is, that all those official lies are already too big to protect, and while the people in the West have started to woke up in masses, small ruling elite has started to get very afraid of us. So, they need this new wall to protect their greedy geopolitical goals, and them self. The European Union is just elite's tool in their efforts to take back full control of population: Keep slaves as sheeps.

Full EU information blockade is very possible

If western people do not start to react in masses, now, and stood up bravely against hostile EU media policies, the full information blockade between the East and West will certainly come to force.

The EU has promoted years need for tough response to what it says, "Russia's information war", and has done nothing in past years to condemn the wide scale censorship of Russian media in Ukraine, those real information war hostilities. In the EU territory we have already seen harsh censorship actions, like it happened in Latvia and Lithuania. These hostilities in media war are just the beginning, and we will see soon more if the trend continues any further.

If you have ever travelled in Thailand, you have maybe seen how some known websites are just blocked with official announcement: "This site is blocked by security officials, for your own safety". So, there is no technical problems to ban and block what ever in the internet, its just the policies, which keep our knowlege growing. 

In other words, only thing what keeps the western globalist elite not to implement the full sensorship against independent and opposing media sources - take full advantage to promote their own interests in all channels - is your personal resistance against that, and your demand to have a right for balanced views, multipolarized information - right to do your own opinions.

In the fight against rising EU information blockade, we the people in East and West, we are all in the same side, and our main weapon is the truth, something what we all deserve.
