The tug-of-war for Ukraine’s public is classic Cold War, but today’s landscape for communication is very different.

 

Dr. Guy Golan and Michael Ardaiolo discuss the role of social media and international broadcasting in the ongoing protests in Ukraine with Dr. Milana Nikolko and Andrea Chalupa.

Dr. Milana Nikolko is an adjunct research professor at Carleton University’s Institute of European, Russian and Eurasian Studies. She is also the director of the Institute for Social Anthropology in Ukraine, an NGO that promotes local scientific discourse with the aim of improving research on matters of social importance in the post-Soviet region.

Andrea Chalupa is a writer, journalist and producer based in New York. She helped launch online video for Condé Nast Portfolio and AOL Money & Finance, and is the author of Orwell and the Refugees: The Untold Story of Animal Farm. Andrea is a co-founder of Digital Maidan, an online movement that made the Ukranian protest the number 1 trending topic on Twitter worldwide.
