The New Cold War

One and a half years after the annexation of the Crimea by the Russian Federation and the start of the war in Eastern Ukraine, the relations between Moscow and the West have reached a historical post Cold War low. Some observers warn for a New Cold War. "Russia is preparing for a conflict with NATO, and NATO is preparing for a possible confrontation with Russia", the London based think tank European Leadership Network recently stated.

How to measure the political, diplomatic and military dimension of the increasing tensions? What is happening behind the scenes and how to report on the real life, cyber and satellite battlefields?

In this panel, four journalists shed their light on these questions from different points of view. Russian journalist Mikhail Zygar explains how to analyse the Kremlin’s foreign policy. Norwegian Moscow correspondent Per Anders Johansen reveals how to research the cyber war between NATO and Moscow. Ukrainian TV journalist Nataliya Gumenyuk will give tips on how to cover the ongoing conflict in East Ukraine. And Norwegian reporter Bård Wormdal explains how to unravel the mystery of satellite warfare.
