Urso (Copasir): "Italy at the center of a disinformation campaign"

"It was noted that the same social networks that propagated news about the ineffectiveness of our vaccines in the face of the magical Sputnik transformed their raison d'etre, in the same night, into defending the Kremlin's reasons for the invasion of Ukraine. It was enough to shoot one. key or if you prefer to change the algorithm, "added the chairman of the Parliamentary Committee

Copasir has become the center of many of the most sensitive dossiers in Italy today. The president knows Adolfo Urso, yesterday a guest at Metropolis, who does not hide the crucial point of the question in an interview with “la Repubblica”: Italy is at the center of a disinformation campaign by Russia. Copasir, since the beginning of the pandemic, has identified an influence on our country by foreign states, Russia and China in particular: "The disinformation machine has been active for at least ten years, moreover it is a fundamental element of so-called 'Gerasimov doctrine' made public in 2013, close to the first Russian invasion of Ukraine. It acted effectively during the pandemic, as they denounced in a document of May 2020, obviously it is in the field even more today in an attempt to condition our choices which are fundamental for the stability of the Western defense. We must be aware of this to increase the resilience of the country ”. “It was noted - says Urso - that the same social networks that propagated news about the ineffectiveness of our vaccines in the face of the magical Sputnik transformed their raison d'être, in the same night, in defending the reasons of the Kremlin on the invasion of Ukraine. It was enough to turn a key or if you prefer to change the algorithm ”.

A gentleman like Antonio Capuano - who is neither a public official nor an agent - participated in meetings between an Italian parliamentarian, Matteo Salvini, and an ambassador from a foreign country: "We never judge the behavior of parliamentarians or their professional activity of our citizens. We have only activated the usual procedures to verify that our services have fully carried out what is necessary to protect national security in the face of those who have repeatedly reiterated that they work for embassies of countries that tend to condition our democracy by any means ". As for the mission 'From Russia with love': “In the presence of what is happening in Ukraine with cities razed to the ground, hospitals and kindergartens destroyed, it seems to me at least inappropriate to associate the word 'love' with an act of Putin. We have already reported to Parliament on that mission, excluding any risks to national security, thanks to the 'sanitary cordon' that the defense and services immediately created when few doctors and many soldiers landed. On the rest we are deepening, in any case it certainly seems to me the propaganda intent ”.

Copasir is becoming more and more central in the public debate in our country: this is because the concept of national security is changing: "It is enough to follow the evolution of the golden power, that is, the instrument that the government has to protect national security: at the beginning of the legislature was limited to Defense and State Security. Today it can also be used in telecommunications sectors such as energy, finance, critical infrastructure, steel, healthcare and even food. Last time it was used to protect a seed company. With the blockade of wheat and fertilizers, which Russia is carrying out to put the West in check, threatening the survival of Africa, each of us understands why ”. "We must be aware - finally observes Urso - that authoritarian, autocratic, increasingly imperial systems use technology to control internal dissent and at the same time to overwhelm our freedoms, just as they use their businesses and the gates of globalization to subdue our economies and therefore the source of our well-being. In this strategy, Italy is central because it is a frontier land between West and East and at the same time a hinge towards Asia and Africa: the growing continents ”.
