New website launched in EU to tackle Russia’s disinformation
A new website, www.euvsdisinfo.eu, has been launched, to provide the European audience with a single resource on addressing the challenge of pro-Kremlin disinformation.
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.
