Threats to journalists and activists[edit | edit source]

Why is this an important topic for European journalists to cover? Simple - because from this research we know how russian secret services are integrated in the economic, public and politic systems in Europe. Also we see how random the choice of people to poison can be: opposition leaders, activists, journalists, former colleagues - it can be anyone. And they all move freely in Europe. They know where to get the information, they have access to data. This is worrying, and I think European media, journalists, investigators must give attention to this, because the European public must know these details about the regime Western leaders want to find peace with.

It is quite certain that these secret services have access to booking.com’s database in real time.The terror that since the russian revolutions is part of the state, is actually already in Europe. And European public - sand worse: politicians are choosing not to see it. 3 hour interview with Elena Kostyuchenko with english subs: https://youtu.be/CobxH2gH4pM

Our pols don't comprehend that there are those who laugh at our open society and vulnerability and see it as rot. Laughing, they send their kids to live here, get their health care here and drive a mercedes, and the irony of the contradiction is lost.

  • Application of the Risk Management Framework to Russian Disinformation Campaigns: During the first year of Russia’s illegal war in Ukraine, social media companies enabled the Kremlin to run a large-scale disinformation campaign targeting the European Union and its allies, reaching an aggregate audience of at least 165 million and generating at least 16 billion views. Preliminary analysis suggests that the reach and influence of Kremlin-backed accounts has grown further in the first half of 2023, driven in particular by the dismantling of Twitter’s safety standards. https://op.europa.eu/en/publication-detail/-/publication/c1d645d0-42f5-11ee-a8b8-01aa75ed71a1/language-de

Counter Propaganda efforts[edit | edit source]

RT and Sputnik

SK: Blocking RT and Sputnik is not limiting access to information, as these are not independent media but weapons created and lavishly funded by the aggressor. It is blocking agressor state’s weapon on EU territory.
SK:I agree that the post-postmodernist reality has put us in front of a new challenge: while we used to have too little freedom of speech/ access to information and fought to gain more, we have now landed in a situation where we have access to so much information, growing exponentially, that we no longer have the mental capacity or time or resources to discern purposefully false and weaponized statements from true records. What we mostly need is media literacy (stop limiting children’s screen time, let them build up resilience, talk about disinformation) and accessible tools to debunk false information/ disinformation. It’s a huge and difficult dilemma, probably one of the worst of our time, alongside climate change. What I argue about is that now, with the war going on and hundreds of independent Russian journalists having a hard time getting the ends meet and desperately in need of our support, I find it strange that NGOs spend money and human resource on what is essentially helping the aggressor. I know this was not their goal, but this is unfortunately a perfect example of what Lenin called “useful idiots” (people in the West who assisted the bolsheviks without realizing it).

August 25 | 18:00 (doors open 17:30) transmediale studio Free admission

Join us for a studio event organised by our current artist-in-residence Asia Badzdyrieva. The evening will bring together writers and curators - Svitlana Matviyenko, Elena Vogman, Olexii Kuchanskyi, and Johannes Bruder - to engage in conversation about the production and dissemination of images and affects within the mediated contexts of climate change and war. The event will comprise of two moderated conversations with a short break in between.

Against the backdrop of the war with Ukraine, the Russian government has sharply increased funding for state media, resulting in an unprecedented level of state propaganda spread on social media platforms. As a consequence, US and EU lawmakers and Ukrainian officials have jolted into action by pressuring social media platforms in an attempt to curb Russian misinformation. This seems to be a watershed moment regarding freedom of the press and internet freedom.

Nieuwsverslaggeving lijkt steeds meer op een vorm van oorlog: feiten worden gepareerd met ‘alternatieve feiten’, fake news bestookt voortdurend de mainstream media, en men spreekt zelfs van ‘informatieoorlog’ of ‘informatieterreur’.
