Russia State-Controlled Media Flood TikTok With Ukraine Disinformation

The Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD) has released a report highlighting misinformation related to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The report says that TikTok has been used to spread misinformation. There have been numerous news reports and coverage added to the platform.

State-controlled media outlets like RT (formerly Russia Today), Sputnik News and RIA Novosti, among others, are using TikTok’s features to spread disinformation that describes Ukraine as the aggressor. There have been reports framing Ukraine soldiers and political leaders as Nazis, and promoting false claims about the conflict.

The investigation found that TikTok is more valuable for these outlets in terms of engagement than platforms such as YouTube.
