Today we launch our new website www.euvsdisinfo.eu, providing you with a single resource on addressing the challenge of pro-Kremlin disinformation, in the form of:
- attractive and clear design
- interactive statistics
- new layout for the #DisinfoReview
- searchable database of disinformation cases
- comprehensive reading list
- easy to send feedback and report mistakes
- content in Russian and German
Below, we present each of these features in more detail. As ever, feedback is welcome – what could still be improved, adjusted, corrected, and any remaining bugs you may find.
The first section is dedicated to the latest news and analysis of pro-Kremlin disinformation. Here, we write about the disinformation campaign in a more problem-focused manner – for example, a particular long-term disinformation campaign targeted at a particular country; new initiatives countering disinformation; political leaders highlighting the dangers; a look behind the curtains and explaining what is happening in state Russian media; and much more.
The second section presents our longest serving product, the Disinformation Review. We will get to the improvements in the #DisinfoReview later.
Below that, you will find a new feature – key statistics. Here you can check how many disinformation cases our contributors have found over a given time. You can see which country is the most frequently mentioned in the disinformation campaign, and the most repeated keywords in the cases we have collected.
At the bottom of the page you will find a new form through which you can help us make our products better, give us feedback and report any mistakes you might have found. Please don’t forget to include links, statistics, statements and other verifiable facts when you use this form!
THE DISINFORMATION REVIEW AND DISINFORMATION CASES
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. Thanks to the #DisinfoReview, all you have to do is click. We have also been sending out weekly newsletters containing the database of the recent disinformation messages, including debunks of the disinformation, accompanying it with a cover note highlighting the most prevalent disinformation stories and narratives. With the help of volunteers, the #DisinfoReview is currently translated into German. If you wish translations to other languages, contact us with a proposal for support.
Now, in response to repeated requests from researchers, journalists and government officials we have created the new feature of a single comprehensive database, allowing you to search our record of over 3,300 disinformation cases with keywords.
Are you interested in disinformation stories about your particular country? Or about a particular person, policy or issue? Now you can just type it into the search field. You can also specify that you want to see results only from a certain time period or in a specific language.
