Strengthening Security Resilience of Ukraine: Countering Russian Disinformation

On February 8, at 5:00 PM by Kyiv, the Reanimation Package of Reforms Coalition and the German Marshall Fund of the United States will organize the Transatlantic Task Force on Ukraine (TTFU) special briefing on: «Strengthening Security Resilience of Ukraine: Countering Russian Disinformation».

Since 2014, Ukraine has been the target of an unrelenting disinformation campaign by the Russian government and its proxies. Now Kremlin propaganda is the tip of the spear to create conditions and fictitious justifications for a possible invasion of Ukraine — especially as Russia’s large-scale military buildup threatens Ukrainians.

Fighting against Russian disinformation for the past several years, Ukrainian authorities and civil society have made significant steps in countering Russian disinformation. Nonetheless, the newly-introduced National Resilience System provides more proactive actions to unite Ukrainians in countering hybrid threats.

What are the priorities of the Ukrainian government in terms of countering Russian propaganda? What measures are being taken by Ukrainian civil society and independent media to combat disinformation? How can Ukraine and its foreign partners in the United States, EU, and NATO, join forces against Russian disinformation?

These and other questions we will discuss during TTFU special briefing.

About the Transatlantic Task Force on Ukraine (TTFU)

The task force was established in October 2018 by the German Marshall Fund of the United States and Reanimation Package of Reforms (RPR) with support from several civil society organizations in Ukraine, including the Ukraine Crisis Media Center. The main focus of the task force is to provide a real-time platform for stronger U.S., European and Ukrainian engagement and information sharing among policymakers, opinion-makers and civil society organizations on political, economic and security issues affecting Ukraine, its democratic transition and engagement with Western partners.

Given the state of global, regional and domestic challenges, including COVID19, facing the U.S., Europe and Ukraine the mission of TTFU is more important than ever to strengthen the transatlantic partnership with Ukraine and the region that continues to confront threats and hostile activities by Russian President Putin.
