News | December 5, 2022

A team of student researchers at The University of Texas at Austin’s Global (Dis)Information Lab (GDIL), led by ISP Senior Research Program Manager and GDIL Fellow Kim Nguyen, recently released an assessment on Russian filtration operations in their war with Ukraine, which was published on the Office of the Director of National Intelligence’s Public Daily Brief. The report claims that Russia is shifting resources to filtration sites that align with anticipated civilian migration in the Russia-Ukraine conflict. The team based their assessment on commercial satellite imagery and open source reporting. Read the full report HERE.

The report was a collaborative effort between UT-Austin’s GDIL and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. GDIL, co-directed by ISP Fellow Dr. Kiril Avramov, was established in 2020 at The University of Texas at Austin to encourage collaborative interdisciplinary academic research on the global circulation of a broad spectrum of information, misinformation, and disinformation via digital media.
