We are proud to announce that we are co-hosting an online discussion “Belarus, Moldova, and Ukraine: COVID-19 disinformation in Eurasia” with Atlantic Council tomorrow.
COVID-19 has made Eastern Europe increasingly vulnerable to internal and external actors exploiting the crisis through disinformation and propaganda.
Foreign and domestic actors have been sowing mistrust towards state institutions and officials, criticizing either too soft or harsh measures, and diminishing the dangers of the pandemic by providing unproven methods to protect from coronavirus.
Liubov Tsybulska, Head of HWAG will talk about specific Russian disinformation tactics regarding pandemic in Ukraine and how they compare to cases, where Kremlin targets other countries.
