INFORMAL TALKS SERIES: Margo Gontar in London – Friday 26th October @UkrClub @ 7pm
As part of our Informal Talks series, we have the pleasure of hosting Margo Gontar, co-founder of the fact-checking website StopFake.org and presenter of its weekly TV show, StopFakeNews. Listed by Kyiv Post 2017 as one of the winners of Ukraine’s Top 30 Under 30 award for young leaders, Margo is among pioneering journalists in combating false news and propaganda.
Amongst other topics, including the latest fake campaigns against Ukrainian Church receiving the tomos, Margo will present “Fakes Debunked by the StopFake Project between 2014-2017: Narratives and Sources”. This analysis includes the results of research conducted by StopFake based on archived data of debunked messages from Russian media.
Of course, we are also aiming for a lively chat with the guest on combatting the disinformation campaign by Russian media and the fake news trend in general.
Please register your attendance at Eventbrite:
The bar and the kitchen serving traditional Ukrainian cuisine will be open during and after the event. We look forward to seeing you!
