“russia Invests Heavily in Propaganda, Accusing Ukraine of the Food Crisis,” Head of Ukraine’s Mission to the EU

russia is investing heavily in its propaganda channels. Still, Ukraine must come up with an asymmetric response by finding ways to influence the russian population and shaping the correct narrative in the EU. Vsevolod Chentsov, Head of the Mission of Ukraine to the European Union, stated this during his briefing at Media Center Ukraine.
