Russia accuses Belgium of staging a poison gas attack in Syria. That kind of finger
pointing is not new. In 2016, Russia also accuses Belgium, when the Syrian government
attacked civilians in a bombing. But the facts tell something else. What is going on here?
In this documentary we dive into the world of half-truths, polarization and disinformation.
Is it Russia’s intention to no longer be able to decide what is true and what is not?
We have a talk with the Belgian State Security and we also go to Finland, to show how
this new war is raging (and fighting) primarily online.
