Boasting interactive statistics and a searchable database of disinformation cases, the site will provide content in English, Russian and German.

“We have been systematically collecting examples of pro-Kremlin disinformation since the beginning of our mandate, to show people who are unaware of the problem what it looks like,” the project team wrote in a statement.
