Russia as the main regional actor operating outside of the EU-NATO framework is projecting its power in Central Europe by various means. Diplomatic activities, energy and economic policy, information warfare and support of domestic political forces sympathetic to the Russian narrative are ways for it to restore influence in the region and weaken the EU and NATO. 

How vulnerable are the Central European societies to such subversive foreign influence? Where are the weak spots to be remedied and what examples of best practices are there to address these threats?
