UK Disinformation and Propaganda The Consortium

The leaked materials show the Thomson Reuters Foundation and BBC Media Action participating in a covert information warfare campaign aimed at countering Russia. Working through a shadowy department within the UK FCO known as the Counter Disinformation & Media Development (CDMD), the media organizations operated alongside a collection of intelligence contractors in a secret entity known simply as "the Consortium."

Through training programs of Russian journalists overseen by Reuters, the British Foreign Office sought to produce an "attitudinal change in the participants," promoting a "positive impact" on their "perception of the UK."
