They will consider the mechanisms and tools of Russian propaganda. They will discuss the methodology of this propaganda, identify target groups, and most importantly -the practical goals of this activity of the Russian Federation. The discussion will have special focus on the Baltic countries that were part of the former USSR. A big number of people who have sympathy for Russia live in the Baltics and they are a special electorate for Russian propaganda. Perhaps as a result of the dialogue, there will be an understanding of the necessary counter measures by the professional community in the Baltics and Europe for the independence of their citizens’s consciousness from the foreign propaganda.
