Russian Propaganda, Disinformation, and Estonia’s Experience

The international community faces serious challenges arising from a new mode of information warfare, which Russia has deployed during the Russian-Ukrainian conflict in 2014-2015.

Waging a Proxy War on Russian Journalism

Much has been said since 2014 about Russia’s proxy war in Ukraine, where Russian troops and equipment are often reported and even sometimes captured, but with official Moscow staunchly denying involvement. However, this is not the only proxy war that the Kremlin is — or appears to be — waging; there are other campaigns, some of which are longer and more effective, simply because they are less noticeable. One particular target is the Russian media. “The links of the goddamn chain”

Moldova: Examining the Russian Media Factor in Protests

The ongoing protest in the Moldovan capital Chișinău is posing a fresh test of Russian state-controlled media’s ability to project Kremlin geopolitical preferences.
