Propaganda and disempowerment

By EU vs Disinfo Mass media are grouped along two major concepts: Media as a Forum or media as a Tribune. This is, of course, a theoretical model to describe two ideal types of relations between the media and its audience. The concept of the Forum is based on a horizontal exchange of ideas and views. In general, the media lends itself to a function as a space for a public discourse. The forum is not a

Russian state media decries Ukraine for renaming its own cities

By Polygraph RIA Novosti Russian state-owned media outlet “‘Not Odessa, but Kotsyubeyev!’ Why does Kyiv erase the real names of cities” Source: RIA Novosti website FALSE Ukraine is a sovereign country that can rename its cities as it sees fit: there are no “real” names.

By EU vs Disinfo This has been a rough week for Russia. The country is subject to a witch-hunt in Germany, Latvia is provoking the EU to fight with Russia, and while the EU might be decaying and falling apart, it is still capable of striking terrible blows on Russia, a country that has never done any harm to anyone. In addition to those false claims, even the ambassador of the EU to Russia is
