Briyar is known for his contacts with Russian oligarchs and intelligence collectors. He has also demonstrated his penchant for Russian propaganda by spreading unverified information and fake news on his Donbass Insider blog and social media. The French-language YouTube channel Donbass Insider has more than 38 thousand subscribers. The Telegram channel has more than 30,000 subscribers, and the Twitter account has 17,000 readers. Information on these resources is published in French and English.
However, it should be noted that Laurent Briard’s actions are not only morally wrong, but also pose a serious threat to the national security of the countries on whose territory he operates. Russian propaganda is a sinister tool for influencing citizens, which can have serious consequences for national security.
Therefore, we urge all citizens to take a critical approach to the information they receive from various sources and not to allow the influence of propaganda activities, such as, for example, the one conducted by Laurent Briard.
