Russia-Ukraine ConflictMisinfo Research Portal

Today I learnt about the Russia-Ukraine ConflictMisinfo Research Portal, a project of the Social Media Lab at Ted Rogers School of Management, Toronto Metropolitan University, Canada and led by Anatoliy Grudz. The portal has
- the Russia-Ukraine ConflictMisinfo Dashboard, an interactive tool "for monitoring online misinformation and disinformation about the Russia-Ukraine war. It tracks and visualizes debunked claims from 100s of trusted fact-checkers worldwide. Debunked claims are collected live and auto-translated into English, Ukrainian and Russian." and
- a Russia-Ukraine ConflictMisinfo Geo-Map "A geo-visualization of debunked claims about the Russia-Ukraine war that specifically reference a geographical location."
- Additionally it has "A curated list of projects and initiatives aimed at investigating and countering Russian propaganda and disinformation on and offline." and a "Curated list of publicly available datasets for studying dis- & misinformation campaigns on social media in the context of the Russia-Ukraine war."
