The Integrity Initiative was set up in 2016 by The Institute for Statecraft in cooperation with the
Free University of Brussels (VUB) to bring to the attention of policy-makers, military leaders and the
general public the threat posed to democratic institutions in the United Kingdom and across Europe
by Russia. The specific focus of the Initiative concerns disinformation, the deliberate spreading of
false information aimed at destabilising Western societies, and sowing confusion and mistrust in our
institutions; but the programme goes further, looking at all manner of threats under the banner of
hybrid warfare and extending to the threat of military action against the West.

Success so far:

Organised visit to the UK by the Lithuanian StratComms team; as a result of their
briefing 77 Brigade adopted the Lithuanian approach
Organised visit to the UK by a Ukrainian Special Forces team; in a series of meetings
with their UK counterparts they passed on invaluable information about how they
are dealing with Russian military operations in Eastern Ukraine
Meetings with senior politicians and military commanders (both in London and at
NATO), and Full Spectrum Effects Coordination Cell (FSECC), to explain the threat of
Russian active measures
Briefing of journalists has led to stories in newspapers and online, including the lead
front-page story in The Times on 17 Dec 2016
Discussions with NATO allies have led to formation of groups looking into active
measures in France, Spain, Greece
Extensive amount of published material on the threat (see Appendix A)


Budget- How much money are you asking for this project? (Different amounts for different
levels of project is fine, but we need specifics on how much for what. Is there funding from
other sources? What about long-term)




UK Government, Parliament and Political Parties
Armed Forces
Educational Institutions: universities, colleges, schools
General Public


Illustrating to the UK military that disinformation and Russian active measures are
just one element of what Russia regards already as a wartime situation (this is clear
from studying their own writings); showing that there is not simply one obvious
military approach from the Russian side (ongoing)
One-on-one briefings for politicians, senior military, journalists (ongoing)
Well-researched articles, published on our own and partner websites (ongoing)
Active Twitter feed to growing number of followers (183 as at 22/03/17, up from 29
in mid-Feb) (ongoing)

Private – Draft Only


Creation of a Europe-wide network of groups who understand the danger of
Russian active measures and who can pass the message on to their own decisionmakers and public, often using material which we initiate; conference planned for
June 2017 in The Netherlands (expanding what we are currently doing)
Bringing together active groups from across Europe, such as the StratComms team
at the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry with counterparts in the UK and elsewhere

Performance indicators:

Tougher stance in government policy towards Russia
Better understanding of the military threat to the UK
More information published in the media on the threat of Russian active measures
Growth of network across Europe
Increase in number of followers on Twitter
Increased education of young generation on disinformation and threats posed by
social media
Greater awareness in all areas of society of the threat posed by Russian active
measures to UK’s democratic institutions
