Hostile Narrative Brief: War in Ukraine. A Year of Aggression

The Beacon Project, Kristína Šefčíková (Czech and Slovak country chapters) / 10 Mar 2023

Since Russia's invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, PSSI in cooperation with IRI's Beacon Project monitored narratives around topics of Ukrainian refugees, sanctions, energy security, and NATO in the CEE media environment and beyond. Together with local experts in Ukraine, Bulgaria, Slovakia, Romania, Czech Republic, Germany, Lithuania and Poland we analyzed over 23 million articles & posts to find actors disseminating content that has the potential to undermine support for Ukraine by exploiting socially contentious issues.

PSSI has contributed with the Czech and Slovak country chapters to this complex research.
