The Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) is calling upon Ukrainian communities to join the international effort to combat Russian disinformation by helping to document such incidents.

East StratCom Team of the European External Action Service, the European Union’s diplomatic service, was tasked with analyzing Russian disinformation, revealing its fundamental aims and tendencies, reacting and effectively preventing further similar steps by the Russian Federation.

Recently, East StratCom created a network for de-bunking myths of the Russian Federation which includes repesentatives of mass media, think tanks, individual experts, officials and non-governmental organizations that are to be the source of facts on Russian disinformation. 

The UWC requests that individuals and organizations send any discovered incidents of Russian disinformation with a link to the relevant source to the UWC Liaison Officer to the EU Maryna Iaroshevych ([email protected]) who will, in turn, submit such materials to East StratCom for analysis.

“We call upon Ukrainian communities to join the effort by East StratCom to compile examples of disinformation that attempt to justify Russian aggression in Ukraine and threaten democratic principles and European values,” commented UWC President Eugene Czolij.
