US, Poland join forces to counter Russian disinformation in Ukraine

The United States and Poland are creating a group to help Ukraine fight Russian disinformation, the U.S. State Department’s Global Engagement Center announced Monday.

The Global Engagement Center, which works to throw a light on disinformation by what it considers hostile states, said in a statement that the joint Ukraine Communications Group, or UCG, was formed in Warsaw to “support Ukraine against Russia’s aggression in the information space.”

The State Department said the new group would bring together allies to “coordinate messaging, promote accurate reporting of Russia’s full-scale invasion, amplify Ukrainian voices and expose Kremlin information manipulation.”

The State Department asserted that the Kremlin “repeatedly uses lies and manipulation to peddle false pretexts for its unjustifiable invasion, obfuscate its war aims and attempt to fracture worldwide solidarity with the Ukrainian people.”

The Kremlin has dismissed claims it spreads disinformation, accusing the West instead of engaging in “information terrorism.”

According to The Associated Press, Polish officials say Poland has also become a target of sabotage and other disruptive measures by the Russian secret services.

NATO member Poland has been a hub for Western weapons supplied to Ukraine. It has also been a haven for a significant number of Ukrainian refugees, who have fled their country since Russia’s invasion in February 2022.
