BIRN Albania Publishes Report on Russian Disinformation

Posted on

New report maps Kremlin narratives’ reach and impact in Albanian-language media.


The report, titled “Russian State-Sponsored Disinformation Narratives in Albania”, was authored by Kristina Voko and Besar Likmeta and financed by the European Union.

The aim of the study is to outline and map the reach of pro-Kremlin narratives in the Albanian media by tracking the republication of statements and news by state-sponsored Russian media outlets and identifying key narratives.

In addition to the disinformation identified in the Albanian-language media outlets, the researchers also analysed posts made on the official Facebook page of the Russian embassy in Tirana in the first eight months of 2022 to identify recurring Russian disinformation narratives spread through this social media channel.
