‘In a result of fact-checking Russian content published on Facebook, Delfi team managed to uncover a Russian propaganda network, in fact, a farm of trolls. Information portals from Russia linked to the accounts of famous Russian experts with tens of thousands of followers and subscribers in a coordinated way spread disinformation, propaganda and false facts about Baltic countries and the Western world’. This is how ‘Facebook’ presents the initiative of Delfi.

Among other nominees, there are fact-checkers from the Northern Ireland, Sakartvelo, Croatia and Bosnia, Norway, Spain, Portugal, the North Macedonia, and Ukraine.
