Alexander Smoljanski


I would like to show the reality of Russia’s war against Ukraine, and its representation in the press, using primary research and proprietary data. I will do this by comparing first-hand accounts, photos, and videos, gathered while volunteering with Ukrainian refugees in Berlin, with research aided by Integrum’s database of Russian and Ukrainian mass media.

Q&A will follow afterwards.
