How Disinformation and its Mongers Strive in Ukraine
Fake News Addicts

Social media have provoked fast exchange of information. In the past, traditional media used to verify their information before it was published and thus served as a sort of information buffer. Now information spreads incredibly fast through social networks and messengers and it's rare that anyone bothers to verify it before reposting. This creates opportunities for deliberate dissemination of false information, to stir public outcry, shape positive or negative images, or subvert the nation entirely.

This publication tries to examine disinformation, from its content to its mongers, and attempts to explain how the Ukrainian society has become so addicted to fake news and stories.
