G7 countries will develop a system of protection against propaganda and manipulation

Using the “Quick Response Mechanism”, G7 countries want to coordinate their efforts to combat propaganda and attempts at destabilization coming from “countries like Russia.” At the G7 summit in Canada, the participating countries decided to develop a new system of protection against propaganda, reports on Saturday, June 9, the agency dpa. The so-called “Rapid Response Mechanism” will allow you to quickly and in a coordinated manner respond to election manipulation, propaganda, as well as other “unacceptable actions” and destabilization attempts coming from “countries such as Russia”.

In particular, US intelligence agencies accuse Russia of organizing a hacker attack on Hillary Clinton’s post: this incident was one of the reasons that led to the failure of Clinton in the presidential election. In turn, Germany believes that the Kremlin intentionally threw in false information in order to influence public opinion in this country. One of the most notorious scandals was the case of the “girl Liza,” who was allegedly abducted and raped by migrants. In addition, the “extremely problematic” G7 countries see the Russian Federation’s support for European parties and movements that oppose the European Union.

Using the new security system, G7 member countries plan to analyze data from such information attacks and exchange them with each other. It is assumed that “ideally” a coordinated reaction should follow the attack, which can be expressed as a retaliatory campaign or sanctions.
