Kremlin’s hybrid warfare: attempts of war crime justification

Since the start of the large-scale invasion of Ukraine, Russian propaganda has intensified, targeting not only Ukrainians and Russians but the entire global community. Disinformation, manipulations, and fake news are traditional Russian tactics of informational war.

Another purpose of Russian propaganda is to blur the responsibility for the war crimes in Ukraine and sow doubts among Ukrainian partners in the West. Both Russian state-owned channels and the network of anonymous Telegram channels in Ukraine disseminate propaganda narratives aimed to undermine the faith in Ukrainian victory and promote the idea of Russian “invincibility”.

For almost a year of a full-scale war, Russia has switched to the strategy of attraction, both on the frontline and in the information space. However, this will not help Russian war criminals to avoid responsibility during the International tribunal.

UKRAINE IN FLAMES project is created by Ukraine Crisis Media Center and NGO “Euroatlantic Course”. We are aiming at searching a loud support for Ukraine in the war started by Russia on the 24th of February 2022.
