Kremlin Pathogens


The Power Vertical Podcast at CEPA


A Kremlin-sponsored disinformation campaign claims that a new deadly virus is actually a biological weapon developed in a secret U.S. laboratory. Is it 1983? Or is it 2020?

Actually, it’s both. Because when it comes to Russian active measures, the more things change, the more they stay the same. From the HIV-AIDS to the anti-vaxxer movement to the covid-19 crisis, false narratives about public health issues have long been a key vector of Russian disinformation and malign influence operations.

So what do Kremlin campaigns of the past teach us about what we are facing today?

Listen to the Power Vertical Podcast as Brian Whitmore, Donald N. Jensen, and special guest John Sipher untangle the latest from Moscow.
