Police raid EU Parliament offices in ‘Russiagate’ probe

by editor

Police carried out raids on Wednesday in connection to “Russian interference” in the European Parliament, according to a statement by the federal prosecutor.

The searches, conducted at a private residence in Brussels and European Parliament offices in Strasbourg and Brussels, are linked to the so-called Russiagate case, where MEPs were approached and paid to promote Russian propaganda via the Voice of Europe website.

“There are indications that the European Parliament employee concerned played a significant role in this,” Belgian law enforcement said.
