Listen to Event Audio

External actors have accelerated their efforts to shape public opinion in Latin America in order to sow distrust in democracy and undermine the United States’ interests in the region. Russia has waged a particularly effective campaign. According to the new US Institute for Peace report Russian Influence Campaigns in Latin America, Moscow has succeeded at amplifying anti-US narratives and neutralizing opposition to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Join Hudson Institute for a discussion with the authors of the report; Douglas Farah, the founder and president of IBI Consultants; and Román Ortiz, senior consultant with IBI Consultants. The speakers will discuss the strategy behind Russia’s disinformation efforts, the tools and tactics that have been most effective, and how the US and its allies can counter disinformation campaigns.
