The Russian Information War – where do we begin?37m | Mar 26, 2022
As I write these words Russia is a month into its invasion of Ukraine in 2022. There are many words I could and have on my social media channels and website, write about this. About the war crimes, the inhumanity, the shelling of civilians, the attacks on people trying to flee but there are many more qualified people on the ground in Ukraine who are doing a much better job of that than I can.
So, what can I do? This is a question many ask. There are practical things we can do like donating money and fund raising, working with a local humanitarian group to back up goods for refugees, petitioning the government for more action and so forth. These are all good and if you can do any or all of them it would be a very worthwhile action. There is however something else we can do, from our homes, our computers and smartphones we can combat the Russian Information War. There is more power in the digital disruption and digital activism of the people than they often realise.
