12 Sep Media monitoring report: Anti-Ukrainian war Propaganda in the Baltic states
President Vladimir Putin’s propaganda is propelling the Ukraine war through Russia media, while continuing to intensify tensions with the West. Putin’s propaganda expands beyond Ukraine into other parts of Europe, including the Baltic region. Using a media monitoring tool “NewsWhip” CRI team was able to investigate what are the most prevalent propaganda narratives in the Baltic region’s news outlets in the Russian language. In our latest research, we investigate different articles and their content to see which propaganda narratives dominated the Russian-speaking public space in the Baltic region. For our research we used “NewsWhip”, a media monitoring platform that tracks content by amount and location of user engagement and tracks audience interests and changes in interests over time. Here are some of the most prevalent propaganda narratives that are active in the Baltic states throughout the war in Ukraine.
CRI belongs to Ukraine War Disinfo work group, which unites 10 analytical centers and reseach groups that monitors Kremiln’s propaganda in 11 countries.
