Poland is building a team to identify and counter disinformation threats, a senior security official has said.

 

"The team that we're building... will monitor and identify events in the information space that have an impact on Poland's security," Żaryn said. "We want to counter such threats, as we see that the Russian Federation has been using the information to pursue hostile goals that threaten not only Poland but the entire West."

 

Apart from countermeasures, the team will also conduct educational campaigns "so that Polish society better understands the threats," Żaryn said.
