A report on a recent roundtable analysing how disinformation may be having an impact on Ukrainian politics.
This report summarises an informal roundtable discussion held at RUSI on 25 June 2019 on themes and approaches to disinformation in Ukraine. The conversation was led by Oleksandr Danylyuk from the Center for Defence Reform in Kiev and built on field research conducted in Ukraine by Peter Roberts and Ewan Lawson from RUSI in May 2019. Having previously considered Russian involvement in Ukraine’s elections, the intent of these discussions was to look broadly at the extent of disinformation in the country, to identify themes of the narratives and approaches employed.
