Presentation of the VoxCheck research “Propaganda diary-2022: the year of Russian disinformation in Europe”

Topics of focus:

– What were the most famous Russian propaganda false narratives about Ukraine in 2022? – Which countries trusted Russian fakes the most and least?
– How do propagandists spread misinformation about Ukraine?
– Education or censorship – how Russian propaganda can be countered in Europe?

Why is it interesting?
VoxChecks’ independent fact-checkers team monitored 93 popular media outlets in six European countries: Germany, Italy, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, and Hungary. Throughout 2022, VoxCheck detected 27 narratives shaping Russia’s war against Ukraine, 325 fakes, and 4,836 cases of fake news.

For reference:
VoxCheck is a fact-checking project of an independent analytical platform Vox Ukraine. The team exposes lies, manipulations, and Russian propaganda both in Ukraine and abroad. Since 2018, we have been signatories to the Code of Ethics of the Poynter Institute’s International Network of Fact Checkers, and since 2020, in partnership with Meta.
