LAUNCH OF 'D-FACTO'

A group of French researchers, journalists and specialists in developing the capacities of individuals to use the media and communication has nnounced the launch of the “De Facto” platform to fight disinformation, the French contribution to a project that on a European scale.

The initiative is the result of efforts by Agence France-Presse, the Sciences Po Institute in Paris (Medialab), the Center for Education and Media Linkage (Clemi) and the collaborative Xwiki SAS platform in response to a call for projects from the European Commission.

RUSSIA’S TOOLKIT OF MILITARY AND NONMILITARY TACTICS

A looming large-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine is unlikely. However, this does not preclude alternative, nonconventional military measures by Russia. These could entail various aspects of hybrid warfare, such as covert activity, political manipulation, cyberattacks, propaganda, and misinformation including the signaling of a potential invasion that we are seeing now. There is also the possibility of Russian military buildups elsewhere, such as weapons deployments to Kaliningrad or in countries that are friendlier to Moscow, such as Belarus.
