NATO Special: Global dictatorship and unleashing all the wars of the last 25 years

By EU vs Disinfo As NATO turned 70 last week, pro-Kremlin media obviously felt obliged to draw their audience’s attention to NATO’s atrocities and expansive nature, not to mention some broken promises.

The EU’s Camps in Ukraine: A case of proactive disinformation

By EU vs Disinfo “Guantanamo Near Donetsk: Ukraine has been building a concentration camp for the separatists.”  In April 2015, this message headlined a story published by Zvezda, the official outlet of Russia’s Ministry of Defence.

Faces of Western women

By EU vs Disinfo The EU is the place for women to be. And numerous initiatives taken up by EU institutions are helping women advance in their professional lives and develop personally.
