Russia has a sophisticated disinformation network that has been generating fake news to manipulate world views since the Soviet Union.
With the invasion of Ukraine, Russian fake news creators are working over time to shift international opinion in favor of Russia, despite the Kremlin's obvious war crimes.
Their tactics have ranged from starting conspiracies that the USA is controlling Ukrainian biolabs to create bioweapons to drumming up nationalist support for the communist dictatorship by encouraging people to mark themselves with the letter "Z".
When people realize these are fake news, Russia is sure to come up with another tactic. Make sure you are trained to spot fake news and help stop Russian disinfo before it spreads.
