Debunk claim:

The EU is not Russophobic. In 2010 the EU and Russia launched a Partnership for Modernisation. As stated in the Joint Declaration: “The European Union and Russia, as long-standing strategic partners in a changing multipolar world, are committed to working together to address common challenges with a balanced and resultoriented approach, based on democracy and the rule of law, both at the national and international level” (http://eeas.europa.eu/delegations/russia/eu_russia/tech_financial_cooperation/partnership_modernisation_facility/index_en.htm).
