The spread of disinformation is a direct threat to our societies by default. It undermines our democracies, it harms our values and it affects our interests. But during a pandemic, disinformation puts lives at risk. The S&D Group has been at the forefront of this fight. At our initiative, today we will vote on the establishment of a special committee against foreign interference and disinformation. Urgent action is the only way to protect our democracies, to protect our common values and to protect our public health. The European Parliament is ready to play its role in the response.
