Introducing The Ukraine-Russian ConflictMisinfo.org Dashboard 


As the Russia invasion of Ukraine continues, people around the world are trying to make sense of this fast-unfolding tragedy. However, accessing accurate and trustworthy information about an active conflict is a minefield littered with mis- and disinformation, myths, and conspiracy theories.

To help policy makers and the public find accurate information about the conflict and stem the tide of misinformation, we are pleased to announce the release of the ConflictMisinfo.org Dashboard. The dashboard is an information management tool for monitoring online misinformation and disinformation about the Ukraine-Russian conflict. It tracks and visualizes debunked Ukraine-Russian conflict related claims from hundreds of trusted fact-checkers based around the world, such as AFP, Reuters, and others. The dashboard is available in English, Ukrainian and Russian.
