#Cyberspace #security as a guarantee of #Spanish integrity

Spain approved a new Security Strategy which replaced the earlier Strategy 2013. The fundamental difference is the key element nowadays is countering disinformation.
It is symbolic that this document was approved only a few days before the official start of the election campaign in Catalonia. The authors of this Strategy refer to the “regime of posttruth” – a phenomenon in which objective facts in the formation of public opinion pale into insignificance, giving way to the dominant role of emotions.
The Spanish government declared that there was a hybrid war in the world and nowadays any attempts to influence public conscience cannot be considered as one-time actions. Intervention in elections through the media and social networks, as they say in the document, is combined with cyber attacks, economic pressure and traditional use of force. The consequences of this “hybrid war” the Strategy authors call the victory of Donald Trump in the US elections and “Brexit”.
It is not pronounced officially, but most experts are confident that it is about protection against Russian “hackers”. Let me remind you that on November 10, Spanish Foreign Minister Alfonso Dastis  stated that he had “quite conflicting information” that a group of Russian hackers using fake accounts in social networks is actively working to “destabilize” the situation in Spain and the EU as a whole. The next day, El Pais published the results of a study by the University of George Washington (USA). Its authors conclude that RT and Sputnik used thousands of accounts in social networks to create a negative image of Spain before and after the independence referendum held in Catalonia on October 1. For example, almost half of the news of autonomy concerned the brutality of the Spanish police during this period.
As a first step in the context of this Strategy, the Spanish Defense Minister María Dolores de Cospedal invited the Security Commission in the Lower House of Parliament to create a working group consisting of deputies and editors.
No specific evidence of Russian interference in the Catalan referendum was presented. However, this does not mean that it was not. Expressing my own opinion, I want to note that this measure is correct and the Spanish government must protect the population of its country from external influence. Maybe, it should have been done earlier. After all, let’s not forget that apart from the Catalan separatism there is a Basque separatism. And there is an opinion that from the French Basques there is a certain influence on the Spanish Basques in order to create an unified state as a result.

#German plan of the #destruction of #Europe

Good evening, my dear readers! I continue the theme of national minorities and regionalisms in Europe.
The modern situation in Europe makes us believe that modern European elites are capable of leading only to a destructive process, to the “real Europe of regions”. Such aspirations exist in many structures of the European Union, including the European Commission. Thus, a number of EU acts promote the implementation of such principles as the development of regionalism and the protection of ethnic, linguistic and religious minorities. Among them are the European Charter of Regional Languages, the European Convention on the Protection of the Rights of Minorities, the European Charter on Local and Regional Autonomy, as well as the Madrid Charter on transregional cooperation, which is designed to facilitate the way out of regions from the power of national governments with their subsequent accession to adjacent regions neighboring states under the supervision of the EU. This policy is supported by European countries, whose goal is the abolition of existing national states with the creation of “Europe of regions” that will allow them to assert their own hegemony on the European continent.
In my articles, I have written many times that George Soros, the famous American billionaire, may be one of the stakeholders in creating unrest in Europe and, in particular, holding a referendum in Catalonia. In addition, there is evidence that the European Commission, together with the Soros Institute, has created a structure that works to promote local specificities and ethnic characteristics – the “Platform for Enriching the Cultural and Ethnic Diversity of Europe”. Its activities are heavily influenced by Anglo-American influence through the International Group for Minority Rights, headquartered in London and the US-based Ethnic Relations Project, headquartered in Princeton. Behind these there are the US State Department and well-known globalist organizations – the Carnegie Endowment, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the Marshall Fund, and others.
But I want to note that “German interest” is the most obvious in the creation of the “Europe of regions”. After all, Germany is one of the most influential countries in Europe. Moreover, for a long time Germany has offered to Europe its concept of policy. For example, Germany is promoting through the EU a whole stream of organizations such as the Federal Union of European Ethnic Communities (UFCE-FUEV), the European Center for Minority Issues (ECMI) or the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages (ECRML), approved by the Council of Europe and the OSCE, whose goal is the effective disintegration of European states. Similarly, the legal recognition of regionalist federalism by European institutions is reflected in such documents as the “Charter of Local and Regional Autonomy” or the framework agreement on cross-border cooperation known as the “Madrid Charter”.
And the consequences of this activity of the Germans are already obvious: the collapse of the former Yugoslavia, the continuing division of Belgium, the destruction of Spain through separatist sentiments in Catalonia. And if the current trend continues, the separation of the provincial regions of France can become a reality (it is already known that a referendum on independence will be held in Caledonia in 2018), the implementation of the “League of the North” project in Italy, autonomy with ” Celtic” territories of Great Britain.
To all of the above, I can add that the policy of the anti-immigration party “AfD” in Germany can also become a disaster that will destroy Europe.
Thus, the movement for minority autonomy has strong support, and it can be argued that under these conditions the process of fragmentation of European states into ethnoregions, well managed and coordinated, will continue, causing instability, local conflicts, and, if necessary, chaos.
I think that it is impossible to allow German and American provocateurs to establish their own order in Europe, which in the future can lead to the dismemberment of the EU.
