Addressing the discussion audience, A. Kudors emphasized that the Kremlin uses both traditional (TV and radio) and new media (web portals and social media) to influence the Latvian society. Much of the disinformation is related to a specific interpretation of history and misleading messages about the economies of the Baltic States, explained the Executive Director of CEEPS.
