Task & Purpose: Ukraine’s new (and probably fake) war hero is a goddamn goat

Task & Purpose: Ukraine’s new (and probably fake) war hero is a goddamn goat. “To paraphrase Mark Antony, ‘Cry havoc, and let slip the goats of war.’ Or something like that, because this latest dispatch from the war in Ukraine is about a goat supposedly taking out a platoon of Russian soldiers. The goat in question, at least according to The Telegraph, wandered into a group of Russian soldiers rigging some grenades around a hospital. The goat, carrying on with its goat business, then supposedly prematurely set off the boobytrap. It presumably walked away unscathed, leaving 40 wounded Russian troops in its wake.”

Brookings Institution: Russia’s narratives about its invasion of Ukraine are lingering in Africa

Brookings Institution: Russia’s narratives about its invasion of Ukraine are lingering in Africa. “The information spaces in Africa and other regions of the Global South like India and China have been heavily targeted by Russian disinformation and propaganda campaigns in recent months and years. In the case of Africa at this moment, Russia’s objectives are not only to justify its invasion of Ukraine, but to sway African countries to support Russia’s actions and secure Russia’s influence over the region, especially as the country becomes increasingly isolated from the United States and Europe.”

It’s Nice That: Posterwar supports Ukraine with a downloadable archive of 80 posters and counting

It’s Nice That: Posterwar supports Ukraine with a downloadable archive of 80 posters and counting. “As it stands today (21 June), the Posterwar archive features 82 posters from countries across the world – Sreenihal [Pouka] counts submissions from: Ukraine, Italy, Finland, Portugal, Lithuania, Latvia, Germany, Bulgaria, India, Brazil, Colombia, Iceland, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia and the US. But this extensive selection looks likely to expand quickly, with the campaign also allowing visitors to submit their artwork directly to the site (after downloading the correct templates). What’s more, Posterwar lets anyone download their preferred poster – or posters – to publicly display their support of Ukraine, either online or in person.”

WIRED: How Ukraine Is Winning the Propaganda War

WIRED: How Ukraine Is Winning the Propaganda War. “As the conflict in Ukraine drags on, the country’s communications strategy has become slicker and more professional, say academics studying information warfare. Ukraine has also shifted its strategy away from amplifying exaggerated myths to focusing on the courage of ordinary people who are committing small, achievable acts of bravery in the face of the Russian invasion.”
