Towards a Safer Ukrainian Media Ecosystem and Civil Society: How OSINT Can Help

Natalia Antonova, Roman Osadchuk, Lukas Andriukaitis

SUMMARY

Verifying information and combating deepfakes is an essential skill for any journalist, one that is all the more crucial in wartime. With the ongoing Russian attack on Ukraine, both the Ukrainian media ecosystem and the global media ecosystem are suffering an onslaught of Russian military propaganda and disinformation, designed to confuse and demoralize Ukrainians and their allies.

This guide is intended for Ukrainian journalists and journalists covering Russia’s war in Ukraine, with the purpose of introducing readers to some of the best tools and practices for identifying and combating disinformation disseminated via videos, images, and Telegram channels.

According to the United States and other Western governments, Russia maintains lists of key people to capture and potentially kill on Ukrainian territory. This means that safeguarding key information is of utmost importance in resisting the Russian threat.

This guide provides practical tips to safeguard your digital activities and improve your digital hygiene. For the purpose of this guide, we define digital hygiene as a set of regular practices to keep one’s digital assets and footprint secure.
