At the eastern frontier of Europe, fake news as component of hybrid war
The rules of war have changed. The war of the future is the one for the human mind. And fake news is the primary weapon of this hybrid war with no rules when it comes to information and disinformation.
The Republic of Moldova is the perfect case-study for this subject because two levels of fake news are present there. On the one hand, we have fake news coming from the Russian Federation that targets the relations between Moldova and the European Union and on the other hand, there is also a local mechanism that produces and distributes fake news. Ultimately, they both have the same goal: to weaken the state, so it will have no future.
The movie brings to the audience speakers with various areas of expertise, who explain (analyze) this phenomenon from all points of view. It also provides solutions to combat this plague.
