The modern idea of political disinformation has its roots in the story of a Russian leader’s tour of Ukraine. But the telling of the story is not to be trusted.
Once upon a time there was a powerful ruler known as Catherine the Great who ruled a vast empire and over the years conquered many new lands.
Catherine appointed her boyfriend to oversee one of these conquests – a place now called Ukraine. Over time, he informed her that the citizens were flourishing and happy. But, according to a version of the tale passed down for centuries, it was a lie.
