      Fighting Russian Disinformation in Europe

      On October 2nd 2023 ISE Group announced a new track in disinformation and cybersecurity. Being a think tank with huge capacity and expertise in the digital world, including digital media, digital security and policy making, we dedicated a special team to research disinformation in Europe, particularly in Poland, Germany, Austria and France. 

      In this research we examine the impact of Russian disinformation that  targets Western countries, particularly through the Internet and social media. Russian war doctrines recognize information warfare as a key element of modern military action, and the RF develops capabilities in this area. This paper aims to identify, analyze, and assess the Russian actions against Ukraine, and particularly the conduct of information warfare by the RF. The fusion of disinformation, propaganda, and other covert powers can be a coercive tool to be used in conflicts. The main hypothesis stipulates that hybrid threats, particularly information warfare, have been tested by the RF in Ukraine to evaluate its concepts, methods, and effectiveness in preparation to conduct aggressive actions in other countries. Coordinated responses to disinformation and propaganda, particularly informational resilience, should be bolstered.

      We will soon announce the series of events with the aim  to raise awareness of the population and implement measures against disinformation in Europe and we are open for partnerships.  

      The full report will be published here soon.
