401 Access Denied Podcast Icon

In 2014 Jessikka Aro was a journalist reporting on the start of the Russo-Ukrainian War when she became aware of a group of Russian citizens who were being paid to promote pro-Russia propaganda. Jessikka joins us today to discuss the influence trolls had on public opinion, as well as how she outed them and became a victim of the trolls herself. And most importantly, we discuss how the Russian disinformation campaign is still working successfully in 2021 to control the narrative worldwide.
