The EU Military Chief of Staff has uncovered its role in establishing Decodex: a service provided by the daily newspaper Le Monde. Decodex aims at destroying the credibility of certain websites.
This service, technically subsidized by Google and Facebook, aims at fighting an alleged Russian influence in the West. Its strategy? Going after Internet sites challenging Nato, and charging them with being trivial in design and spreading this so-called “propaganda” from Moscow.
Several media outlets have been chosen to collaborate with this project. All of them are French. And what, is the root of the evil according to those promoting the campaign? Not Sputnik and Russia Today, but [yours truly], Voltaire Network.
