  • As Lithuania has a long history of dealing with Russian aggression, it is literally and figuratively on the frontlines combatting Kremlin disinformation and propaganda. 
  • Lithuania is home to many leading experts, volunteers, NGOs, and other institutions fighting disinformation and is a successful example of how to combat disinformation.
  • A majority of the disinformation encountered in Lithuania is Russian in origin and is intended for international audiences to undermine NATO, the EU, and the West in general while promoting Russian legitimacy and authority.
