Russia’s disinformation campaigns are targeting African Americans

Bucerius Fellow Žilvinas Švedkauskas and his colleagues published an article in the Washington Post:

“During this summer’s historic Black Lives Matter protests across the United States, social media platforms have been rife with disinformation. That’s not a coincidence. Since 2016, Russian disinformation campaigns have focused particularly on race and social issues related to African Americans, exploiting the fact that race remains a highly volatile area in U.S. politics."
