Russian disinformation is one of the most remarkable things about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. In addition to denying some of the bloodiest attacks of this war in his country, the Russian embassy in Spain tries to do the same.

This is how Russia handles social media

A Russian bot is the pseudonym of a former employee of an astroturfing agency who remains anonymous because a confidentiality agreement prevents him from specifying the specific content of his former work.

We spoke with a ‘Russian Bot’, an expert in creating fake news and manipulating Internet conversations

He worked as an intoxicant in social networks in favor of Russia. He does not want to reveal his identity because he fears for his life. He calls himself “Russian Bot” and is an expert in creating fake news and manipulating Internet conversations. ‘On everyone’s lips’ has spoken exclusively with him and has told us about things as important as the Bucha massacre.

“We have seen images, specifically these of Bucha, we have seen tweets from the Russian Embassy in Spain saying that everything was a fictitious work of the Ukrainian government and yet we have seen elsewhere that this is not the case. We have found trolls who have published information contradictory along these lines”, he explained.

But not only Russia uses ‘bots’ to misinform and he tells us about other cases he knows: “The case of the great Ukrainian ally who had shot down I don’t know how many Russian planes and that in the end it was all images from a video game. Let’s say that Ukraine has used certain techniques to turn the story in his favor”.

Advice from a Russian ‘bot’ to avoid misinformation: “Don’t drink only from one source”

Before finishing his interview, this ‘bot’ has given us some advice to avoid misinformation: “You shouldn’t drink from just one source, in this case from Ukraine it’s best to check several sources because they may get lost in misinformation. Regarding harassment campaigns, what I recommend is that they value the fact that they can be orchestrated campaigns,” he assured.
