Belgium Probes Suspected Russian Interference in EU Elections

Belgian PM Alexander De Croo has announced an investigation into suspected Russian interference in the upcoming Europe-wide elections in June. Confirming the existence of pro-Russian networks operating in several European countries, including Belgium, De Croo emphasized the objective of Moscow to elect more pro-Russian candidates to the European Parliament.

The investigation comes amid concerns that such interference aims to weaken European support for Ukraine, aligning with Russia’s strategic interests. With Europe-wide polls scheduled for June 6-9, the probe highlights the importance of safeguarding the integrity of the electoral process against foreign influence.
