GIOR REPORT: US Amplifiers of Russian ‘Ampliganda’

The Glob­al Influ­ence Oper­a­tions Report (GIOR) has pub­lished the third in a series of reports on glob­al influ­ence oper­a­tions, titled “US Ampli­fiers of Russ­ian ‘Ampli­gan­da’.” Accord­ing to the report synopsis:

A group of promi­nent US social media influ­encers from both the right and the left has recent­ly act­ed as ampli­fiers of Russ­ian dis­in­for­ma­tion, claim­ing the Unit­ed States is devel­op­ing bio­log­i­cal weapons in a net­work of labs locat­ed in Ukraine. These indi­vid­u­als demon­strat­ed a pri­or will­ing­ness to sup­port Russ­ian posi­tions, and most were known ear­li­er for var­i­ous forms of COVID denial­ism. Self-inter­est, par­tic­u­lar­ly eco­nom­ic, is like­ly a major rea­son behind the shift by social media influ­encers to these Russ­ian narratives.
