These measures are designed to target high-value sectors of the Russian economy, such as energy, finance and trade, and make it increasingly difficult to evade EU sanctions.</div> <span rel="schema:author" class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/10" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" content="Maximiliaan van Lange">Maximiliaan va…</span></span> <span property="schema:dateCreated" content="2024-06-25T12:41:46+00:00" class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Tue, 06/25/2024 - 14:41</span> <div class="node__links"> <ul class="links inline"><li class="node-readmore"><a href="/news/eu-adopts-14th-package-sanctions-against-russia" rel="tag" title="EU adopts 14th package of sanctions against Russia" hreflang="en">Read more<span class="visually-hidden"> about EU adopts 14th package of sanctions against Russia</span></a></li><li class="comment-forbidden"></li></ul> </div> Tue, 25 Jun 2024 12:41:46 +0000 12753 at https://www.commonspace.eu France, Germany and Poland face the brunt of Russian disinformation attacks https://www.commonspace.eu/news/france-germany-and-poland-face-brunt-russian-disinformation-attacks <span property="schema:name" class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">France, Germany and Poland face the brunt of Russian disinformation attacks</span> <div property="schema:text" class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item">France, Germany, and Poland have become "permanent" targets of Russian disinformation attacks in the lead-up to the European Parliament (EU) elections this week, a senior EU official reported on Tuesday (4 June). The EU has consistently warned that Russia would intensify its disinformation campaigns as the June 6-9 vote approaches. "There are three big countries under permanent attack [from Russia]: France, Germany, and Poland," said EU Commissioner Vera Jourova, citing research by the European Digital Media Observatory, of which AFP is a part. She highlighted an increase in "more massive disinformation attacks on specific topics."</div> <span rel="schema:author" class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/10" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" content="Maximiliaan van Lange">Maximiliaan va…</span></span> <span property="schema:dateCreated" content="2024-06-05T09:34:14+00:00" class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 06/05/2024 - 11:34</span> <div class="node__links"> <ul class="links inline"><li class="node-readmore"><a href="/news/france-germany-and-poland-face-brunt-russian-disinformation-attacks" rel="tag" title="France, Germany and Poland face the brunt of Russian disinformation attacks" hreflang="en">Read more<span class="visually-hidden"> about France, Germany and Poland face the brunt of Russian disinformation attacks</span></a></li><li class="comment-forbidden"></li></ul> </div> Wed, 05 Jun 2024 09:34:14 +0000 12721 at https://www.commonspace.eu Commentary: Navigating Hybrid Threats in the South Caucasus https://www.commonspace.eu/commentary/commentary-navigating-hybrid-threats-south-caucasus <span property="schema:name" class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Commentary: Navigating Hybrid Threats in the South Caucasus</span> <div property="schema:text" class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p><span><span><span><span lang="EN-US" lang="EN-US" lang="EN-US">In today's interconnected and rapidly changing world, the South Caucasus region grapples with a new breed of geopolitical challenges: hybrid threats.
