What MPs told Russian propaganda channel – POLITICO

MEP Vandendriessche said he recognized the name Voice of Europe during the previous parliamentary term, before 2019, when he worked as a press officer. He said he was now the victim of a disinformation campaign, claiming he had been promoted by a Russian disinformation campaign. “How can I get promoted if I gave an interview that was viewed several hundred times or that’s it?” He asked.

Joachim Kuhs, Germany’s far-right MEP, did not name Tomlinson but said he did not know the interview would be given to Voice of Europe, saying he was under the impression it would be aimed to European conservatives. Kuhs employs Gabriëlle Popken, de Graaff’s wife, at the European Parliament as his assistant, an arrangement he called “not unusual.”

“I don’t know who the Voice of Europe is,” said Slovak MEP Radačovský, who gave a one-on-one interview calling for peace, while on his doorstep in Brussels. When asked under what conditions peace should take place, Radačovský suggested that he was working for the common good of all humanity and walked away.

MEP Uhrík wrote in an email that it was not his role to find out who was interviewing him: “My duty in my political work is to answer relevant questions from the public, not to ask who puts it. »

Another participant in this debate last October, a consultant called Henri Malosse, spoke of a three-point “peace plan” for Ukraine, which he said was Medvedchuk’s original idea – since sanctioned by the Republic Czech to be behind Voice of Europe.

When asked why he brought up Medvedchuk’s apparent peace plan for Ukraine during one of the debates, Malosse replied: “The journalist told me that he had prepared a peace plan, so I think it’s something interesting.” “I didn’t give any assessment of this plan, I just mentioned it,” he said. He also did not remember the identities of the journalists, except for a “young man and a young woman.”
