Ep. 34 - Could Ukraine Move Away From The West? Some People Want It To

September 29, 2020

Anti-Western propaganda is growing in the Ukrainian information space. It is fuelled by pro-Russian politicians and media, some popular bloggers and oligarchs-aligned politicians. This episode of the UkraineWorld podcast focuses on the information campaign by anti-Western politicians in Ukraine, which present the “West” as Ukraine’s chief enemy.

Two analysts at UkraineWorld and Internews Ukraine, Volodymyr Yermolenko and Vitaliy Rybak, talk about the key narratives, players and distribution channels of this campaign, as well as troll armies in social networks which are supporting it. The podcast is based on the study, “Fake Fans: How Anti-Western Actors in Ukraine are Using Troll Armies to Push Their Agenda,” which you can find on our website.
