Abstrakt: Dezinformacja i propaganda są kluczowymi aspektami strategii wojennej Rosji, ponieważ wykorzystuje ona środowisko informacyjne do uzasadniania swoich działań w polityce międzynarodowej, zarówno w kraju, jak i za granicą, oraz do zmuszania odbiorców do nieświadomego wspierania jej działań. Rosja, prowadząc do konfliktu z Ukrainą i przez cały ten czas, wykorzystała cały swój aparat propagandowy, wykorzystując jawne i tajne możliwości zarówno mediów, jak i narzędzi dezinformacyjnych, aby usprawiedliwić inwazję i zniszczyć międzynarodowe poparcie dla Ukrainy. Jakich instrumentów, metod i narracji używała Rosja przed i po inwazji na Ukrainę? Szerzenie dezinformacji przez Federację Rosyjską przed i po inwazji na Ukrainę w lutym 2022 r., a także działania podjęte w odpowiedzi przez Ukrainę, sojusznicze rządy, organizacje pozarządowe i międzynarodowe przedstawiają ważną perspektywę i lekcje, jak przeciwdziałać dezinformacji i narracjom propagandowym.
