Spreading the threat of a serious epidemic using a French news agency’s identity

On Wednesday, Radio France International fell victim to a coordinated information attack when a false report claiming that France was facing a tuberculosis epidemic due to the admission of Ukrainian soldiers to the country’s hospitals was circulated online. The video in question, which first appeared on Russian social media channels and was later shared on various platforms, falsely claimed it was produced by RFI’s editorial team.

The spread of this misinformation is a tactic often employed by disinformation networks to sow division and erode trust in institutions. This case serves as a reminder that critical thinking and fact-checking are essential in combating the spread of disinformation and protecting against information attacks.
