Before there was an invasion in Ukraine, there was an information war. A deep-dive into the inner workings of Russia's information chaos machine.
Canadaland doesn’t have a foreign bureau, so we can’t bring you the latest on the ground conflict in Ukraine. What we can do is show you another side of the conflict that has deeply influenced this ground invasion: the information war.
This week, we take a deep-dive into the inner workings of Russia’s information chaos machine and how its use in Ukraine laid the groundwork for what was to come in other countries, including – you guessed it: Canada.
We also get a first-hand look at how the information war has led to the rise of cyber sleuths
, like our friend James. (Not his real name.)
