Political Psychology of War: How Propaganda Works

Russian disinformation campaigns on Ukraine, Russia and Europa have been launched many years before Russia’s full invasion in Ukraine started. The annexation of Crimea, the occupation of the Donbas, and both big revolutions in independent Ukraine were accompanied by Russian narratives competing with Ukrainian and Western liberal narratives. These interpretation frames worked in many perspectives – Germany’s reluctant understanding of the war’s realities still mirrors the power of stories and symbols provided by Russia to keep Germany as an ally.

In our sixth edition of Voices From Ukraine, political psychologist Dmytro Iarovyi will explain how Russian propaganda and information warfare worked in Europe in the ladt decade, how it eventually failed but still may win in Europe.

Dmytro Iarovyi – PhD in Political Psychology, Project Manager of the Public Policy and Governance Department at Kyiv School of Economics.

The series “Voices from Ukraine – Writing and Researching in War: Dialogue with Scholars from and in Ukraine” takes place every Thursday at lunchtime in the upcoming weeks. VOICES FROM UKRAINE presents Ukrainian analyses and perspectives on the war. We discuss the current situation with academics in Ukraine and listen to their evaluation of how Ukraine can move forward. At the Viadrina, we offer our colleagues in Ukraine a platform to be heard – in Germany, in Europe. Streams of the previous events can be found here.

The series of events is a cooperation of Viadrina Institut für Europa-Studien (IFES) and the project Ukraine Calling at European University Viadrina.
