The West through the Lens of Russian Media
Russia has become more active in its use of media abroad in recent years. Allegations of Russian political interference in Western democracies, and the spread of false or polarizing information, have become constants in public discourse. But what is Russian media saying about the West, and Sweden more specifically? What channels of influence are being used by Russia today? And is Russian media able to influence public opinion in the West? Join us for a discussion with:
Ben Nimmo, Information Defense Fellow, Digital Forensic Research Lab, Atlantic Council
Oleksiy Makukhin, Director, Hybrid Warfare Analytical Group, Ukrainian Crisis Media Center
Nataliya Popovych, Co-Founder and Deputy Chair, Ukrainian Crisis Media Center
Moderator: Martin Kragh, Head of the Russia and Eurasia Programme at the Swedish Institute of International Affairs (UI)
