RT and conspiracy theory cover.tif

2022, Routledge

This book, co-authored with Ilya Yablokov, provides the first ever study of how the Russian government engages with conspiracy theories in the international arena, with a particular focus on the use of conspiracy theories as an instrument of public diplomacy. With case studies including the Skripal poisonings, 2016 and 2020 US Presidential elections, and COVID-19, the book examines how global communication technologies influence the development and dissemination of conspiracy theories, which are also an important component of the post-Soviet Russian intellectual landscape and Kremlin-sponsored political discourse.
