Green School Senior Fellow David J. Kramer joins talk on Kremlin disinformation campaigns

On September 18, 2020, Steven J. Green School of International and Public Affairs Senior Fellow David J. Kramer joined the Central and Eastern European Coalition (CEEC) in a virtual policy discussion on “Resilience and Russian Interference: Neutralizing the Kremlin’s Campaign to Dismantle Democracy,” hosted by the Joint Baltic American National Committee, Inc.

The topics addressed included the Kremlin’s disinformation campaigns, Putin’s recent attempts at revisionism, their role in the changing political landscape, and implications for upcoming elections.

The panel explored effective counter-narratives to fight back on multiple levels, including in the political, economic and military spheres, and how the Three Seas Initiative (a.k.a. the Baltic, Adriatic, Black Sea (BABS) Initiative) should be a positive factor on this challenge and the ongoing political situation in Belarus.

Also in attendance of the discussion were Ambassador William Courtney, Lieutenant General (Retired) Ben Hodges; and Vikoras Daukšas. CEEC colleague Michael Sawkiw of the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America moderated the webinar.
