American Library of Congress declares StopFake a unique historical source and a testimony to russia's disinformation
American Library of Congress has added StopFake website to its web archives, recognizing it as a unique historical source that demonstrates in detail the evolution and dangers of russian propaganda and disinformation. This was announced on the StopFake Facebook page.
Thus, the website's content will be preserved and available for analysts from all over the world to study.
The Ukrainian fact-checking project StopFake was founded in 2014 by professors, graduates, and students of the Kyiv-Mohyla School of Journalism and NaUKMA. Over the eight years of the organization's activity, the StopFake website has collected tens of thousands of examples of russian lies, which allow us to see the evolution of russian information crimes.
The Library of Congress preserves important cultural artifacts and provides long-term access to them. The library's traditional functions include acquisition, cataloguing, preservation, and maintenance of historically important collection materials for education and research, particularly in the area of digital content such as websites. The materials of the US Library of Congress – web archives – are important because they record historical information that might otherwise be lost.
Help us be even more cool!
