On March 9, 2022, an online event “How to win the disinformation war in Ukraine” was organized with the mediation of the ICM office in Brussels, which more than 500 participants from all over the world joined.
Ukraine has already won on the information front thanks to the dedication of every Ukrainian. Every day, our country shatters russian propaganda fakes. ICM founder Viktor Berezenko became one of the speakers of the event.
- The effective use of social media by Ukraine plays an important role in the disinformation fight.
- Collaboration with Meta, Google and Twitter made it possible to quickly limit disinformation messages. The vast majority of them were targeted specifically at the russian country media.
- The international media is an independent mediator in the information war. Representatives of the Ukrainian media community were able to create platforms for informing Western colleagues about the real situation in Ukraine on the daily basis.
“With our Brussels office, we are making a daily digest about the war in Ukraine for the international media in English with real statistics, graphs and true/false selections,” – Viktor Berezenko said.
The event was organized together with The German Marshall Fund of the United States, Alliance for Securing Democracy, Institute of Global Transformation with the participation of: Martyna Bildziukiewicz, Head of East StratCom Task Force, EEAS, Heorhii Tykhyi, Press Secretary of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Bret Schafer, Senior Fellow and Head Information Manipulation Team, ASD, Bruno Lété, Senior Fellow, GMF.
