Liubov Tsybulska is joining the European Values Think-Tank’s Kremlin Watch Program. Drawing on her rich professional experience in the Ukrainian state and media sector, she will create guidelines for the Western international community for impactful assistance and support for Ukraine.
„We have asked Liubov to join our Kremlin Watch team because we appreciate her courage, passion and experience in strategic communications and security policy. We believe people like Liubov represent the future of Ukraine, no matter how tough the journey will be. If there is anybody EU member states can learn from in the field of countering Russian subversion in Ukraine, she is the one,” says Jakub Janda, Executive Director of the European Values Think-Tank.
„I have known the European Values Think-Tank team for quite a long time and it is a special honor for me to work with them on this project. I mainly focus on Russian information operations and construction of political narratives in Ukraine, which Russian media promote for both domestic and foreign audiences. In my research, I aim to analyze the crucial areas in European countries’ strategic perspective for support of Ukraine. Here in Prague, I’d also like to share the experience that Ukraine has gained in repelling information attacks in a period of crisis and war,” says new Kremlin Watch Special Fellow Liubov Tsybulska.
