Reliable sources of information regarding the Ukraine-conflict
The Ukraine-conflict escalated to an open war and the persisting violence in the region concerns and moves us. It is therefore all the more important to gather comprehensive information in order to make up one’s own mind. In this respect, a great range and variety of opportunities is provided which is very desirable on the one hand but on the other this makes it increasingly difficult to select appropriately which means to distinguish reliable information from “Fake-News” partly presented in an increasingly better “disguised” manner.
