The media war in Ukraine and about Ukraine has been quite evident since the early days of the Maidan – a popular campaign of civil disobedience in the center of Kiev that turned violent and led to the eventual ouster of the pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych in February 2014. It has also been noted that the Russian-Ukrainian conflict started soon after and that Russia’s annexation of Crimea was precipitated by intense media campaigns in both countries. These media wars then spread to the West and morphed into a series of confrontations between Ukraine and Russia, Russia and the West, and Ukraine together with the West against Russia and its allies, including Russia-sympathetic analysts in the West. Heated narratives targeted all sides of the conflict and made the search for a compromise nearly impossible.
