Russia uses imperialist agenda in wars and disinformation. This was said today within the Balkan Summit on disinformation, where the need to combat propaganda and professional journalism was emphasized. It was said there that journalism today works under political and economic pressure, therefore it can hardly be used as a verifiable source for what society reads.

She said that despite efforts to combat disinformation, professional journalism today is not the same as it used to be. She said that journalism works under political and economic pressure and therefore cannot be used as a verifiable source for what society reads.

Meanwhile, the researcher from Estonia, Vladimir Sazanov, said that Russia continues to have inherited propaganda.

He said that Russia uses the imperialist agenda in wars and disinformation.
