How Russian Disinformation Spreads Beyond Its Borders

Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February, Moscow has ramped up its propaganda and disinformation efforts, crafting a through-the-looking-glass image of the war in which Ukraine and the West — not Russia — are to blame for Russia’s attack.

Transnistria is technically part of the former-Soviet country of Moldova, but the region’s separatist government is backed by some 1,500 Russian troops who are stationed there and its airwaves are dominated by Russian state-owned media outlets. Residents live just a few miles from the Ukrainian border, however, and have access to Ukrainian broadcasts as well.

A New York Times video team traveled to the breakaway region and spoke with people to find out what they believe about the war in Ukraine and to see how disinformation spreads beyond Russia’s borders.
