The militarization of information

Dmitry Kiselev, Director General of Russian government-controlled media Agency "Russia Today", said: "objectivity is a myth which is proposed and imposed on us." Today, thanks to the Internet and social media, the manipulation of our perception of the world before the unimaginable happens in time, space and internationally.

The situation is complicated by the increasingly rapid development of technologies for the production and dissemination of information. For example, over the past year we have seen the transition from the dominance of text and images to the recorded video, and now even displaced live video. Vulnerabilities evolve with the technology, but it reduces the cost of the technology that makes possible the existence of a larger number of actors.
