Talk Through the Media They TRUST
Entertainment and general interest media wrote about the round table and cultural ambassadors program (62 publications)
Only tourism media remained passive
Solution We analyzed information flows and saw that the most of Ukrainian tourism portals simply reprint the news from Russian tourism portals. That’s why the press release “New Year in Vilnius” were sent to both Ukrainian and Russian media.
Result: about 60 publications, over 15% were reprints from Russian media
