Mogherini opens center to counter hybrid threats

EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said that the EU's Stratcom East team that deals with Russian disinformation uncovered over 3,000 disinformation cases since its founding two years ago.

She said the EU would continue to “talk about what we are doing, to explain with a maximum of transparency our policies, [and] spread the real stories about the positive impact that our European action has on the lives of so many people.”

According to her, the EU “could not take the issue of hybrid threats more seriously.”

Mogherini was speaking ahead of the inauguration on October 2 of the new European Center Of Excellence For Countering Hybrid Threats in Helsinki, RFE/RL reported.

The center, which is a Finnish initiative, brings together 10 EU member states, as well as Norway and the United States, to focus on research, training, education, and exercises.

Mogherini described the center as “an essential contribution to our capacity to respond to crisis."
