Russia, Ukraine, and the front lines of information warfare

CJR · Russia, Ukraine, and the front lines of information warfare

Despite Ukraine’s efforts to downplay the threat, hybrid warfare between Russia and the West has already begun. Christo Grozev is the lead Russia investigator with Bellingcat, focusing on security threats, extraterritorial clandestine operations, and the weaponization of information. On this week’s Kicker, he and Kyle Pope, editor and publisher of CJR, discuss how the press should cover a conflict that will put information warfare at the forefront.
