How Russian and Chinese propaganda takes advantage of COVID-19 pandemic?
COVID-19 pandemic is posing a number of serious challenges for the European states not only in healthcare sector, but in many other spheres of public life. One of the most underestimated threats of the pandemic is the authoritarian Russia and China gaining momentum on the global political scene and and their domination in the information realm. We will look at the methods and narratives the two states are using to promote their agenda on the international stage against the background of the coronavirus pandemic.
We are continuing with our traditional weekly #StayOn talks focusing on the most relevant issues of political, economic and social nature. On Thursday May 28, at 17h CET we will be delighted to give the floor to our alumnus from Belarus, Zmicier Mickiewicz, who will provide an overview of the basic messages and techniques, deployed by Russian and Chinese propaganda in the foreign media in order to promote their respective agenda and interests in the EU and US, explore the narrative promoted by Russia and China with relation to COVID-19, major goals and methods of Russian coronavirus propaganda in Eastern Europe. We will touch upon the long-term strategy of China, and consequences of Russian and Chinese propaganda for political life of Europe.
