After a meeting with his Prime Minister Laimdota Straujuma, President of Latvia Raimonds Vējonis publicly complained of “Russia’s information pressure.”
EADaily’s correspondent quotes Vējonis as saying that this pressure is very high. “We feel it every day. We must be ready to make our people strategically and analytically aware so they can separate the wheat from the chaff,” the Latvian president said.
He said that in the first half of 2015, as the EU chair, Latvia adopted a plan of action on strategic communications and formed a special eastern group on strategic communications.
“This is not a special counteraction to Russia’s propaganda – simply, each EU member state should have its own plan on strategic communications,” Vējonis said.
