The BBC Guide to Russian Information Warfare on Ukraine

BBC News has post­ed a guide to the meth­ods used by pro-Krem­lin media out­lets in their infor­ma­tion war against Ukraine. The BBC guide begins:

As Rus­sia con­tin­ues its mil­i­tary build up on Ukraine’s bor­der, it’s also attempt­ing to con­trol the media nar­ra­tive — but which parts are mis­lead­ing? We’ve looked at some exam­ples of the meth­ods used by pro-Krem­lin outlets.

Read the rest here.

The guide cov­ers the fol­low­ing areas:

  • Pro­mot­ing false stories
  • Ampli­fy­ing unver­i­fied videos
  • Por­tray­ing Ukraine as pro-Nazi
  • Read­ers’ com­ments used to rep­re­sent pub­lic opinion
  • Using West­ern voic­es to exag­ger­ate sup­port for Russia

In recent months, the Glob­al Influ­ence Oper­a­tions Report has exten­sive­ly cov­ered Russ­ian dis­in­for­ma­tion oper­a­tions tar­get­ing Ukraine.
