The flagship product of the EU vs Disinformation campaign, the Disinformation Review, was launched in November 2015. The Review brings you the latest news articles carrying key examples of how pro-Kremlin disinformation finds its way into the international information space, as well as news and analysis on the topic. The Review focuses on key messages carried in the media, which have been identified as providing a partial, distorted or false view or interpretation and spreading key pro-Kremlin messaging. It does not necessarily imply however that the outlet concerned is linked to the Kremlin or pro-Kremlin, or that it has intentionally sought to disinform. The Review analyses messages, not the messenger. If the message is a) false, which is determined by the facts and b) originating and/or in line with usual pro-Kremlin disinformation messaging, it is included in the product. Read more about the terminology of the Disinformation Review here. The Review is a compilation of cases from the East Stratcom Task Force’s wide network of contributors and therefore cannot be considered an official EU position.
In the four years of its existence, the EU vs Disinformation campaign has issued more than 140 Disinformation Review newsletters containing more than 5,000 cases of disinformation messages in 18 different languages. The product is regularly used and quoted by various governments, ministries, state agencies, secret services, researchers, think tanks and journalists across Europe and beyond.
The Disinformation Review is regularly posted on this website, delivered to subscribers’ mailboxes and published on the campaign’s Twitter and Facebook accounts. You can subscribe to the newsletter in English here and in Russian here.

But even so, amid the endless web of lies and misrepresentations, the disinformation campaign surrounding Russia’s downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 – a crime that took 298 innocent lives – stands out for its viciousness.read more
