Identify and manage state-aligned ad campaigns as well as the presence of government-affiliated enterprises.

In the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, disinformation is spreading throughout media like wildfire: doctored videos, false claims of chemical weapons development, and all-out lies regarding reporting on various assaults.

Just like with malware, digital advertising channels are ample for widespread dissemination of disinformation. More than ever, publishers, AdTech platforms, and enterprises around the world are determined to keep consumers safe from disinformation and malware emanating from the Russian state. As a proponent for consumer digital trust and safety, The Media Trust is here to help.

A massive global infrastructure of devices empowers The Media Trust to identify and track advertisers, AdTech platforms, and other entities aligned with the Russian state across Internet and app environments.
