What was the paper about?
Disinformation is intentionally false or misleading information that is spread in a calculated way to deceive target audiences.
While misinformation is the spread of incorrect or unverified information, disinformation is deliberate promotion of false information in order to influence an outcome.
Historically disinformation was primarily prepared by government intelligence, and its use as a tactical weapon, defined as 'Active measures' was started in 1923 by the KGB.
The term 'maskirovka' was used by the Russian military to refer to a combination of tactics including disinformation, simulation, camouflage, and concealment.
Since world was II, disinformation has been extensively used by governments, especially during the cold war.
