Debunk claim:

The Eastern Partnership (EaP) is a joint initiative involving the EU, its member states and Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. It is based on a commitment to the principles of international law and fundamental values – democracy, the rule of law, human rights and fundamental freedoms. It also encompasses support for a market economy, sustainable development and good governance. The initiative only concerns the countries involved and does not suggest anything concerning relations with third part countries. https://eeas.europa.eu/topics/eastern-partnership/419/eastern-partnership_en
