I stupidly thought it was just alt right racists doing all of this. Now that I read this it is easy to see how these efforts are much more coordinated and the propaganda assaults are much bigger than any one racist group could achieve.

A former Hungarian spy has broken cover to describe how the Russians have played up and exaggerated the European refugee crisis for propaganda.

Farenc Katrein, who served in the country’s counter-intelligence agency for 13 years, said the Kremlin is “aggravating” the effects of migration by spreading “false” stories.

Mr Katrein said Russian officials, including foreign minister Sergei Lavrov, exaggerated the Cologne New Year's Eve sex attacks reports.

“Russia plays a part in aggravating the migration crisis and especially in using it for propaganda and gaining influence,” said the defector, who now lives abroad.


You can see their work all over the place. It is especially easy for them to deceive when people are speaking a different language and they "Interpret" what they are saying. Here is a link to a Youtube videos that show the exact propaganda this article is talking about. And listed right next to it is a bunch of others.
