We are all familiar with the images of the destruction of the Drama Theater in Mariupol, a devastating example of Russian aggression indifferent to the fate of children, unarmed civilians or simply human lives. The theater used as a shelter was bombed and completely destroyed despite a clear warning about the children inside. Vladimir Putin and his henchmen have declared an all-out war on civilization, humanity and culture, dragging the theater into the middle of the conflict – literally and figuratively.
After the outbreak of war on February 24, 2022, theater director Magda Szpecht decided to return to her first profession – journalism. Abandoning her previous activities, she chose the path of Cyber Elf – fighting Russian trolls, fake news and disinformation. Social platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Telegram, YouTube and others), but also news portals, TV channels and first-hand news have become her daily battlefield and tools for sharing confirmed information. All this to protect the first – and perhaps crucial for the parties excluded from the conflict – front line: the fight for truth taking place in cyberspace.
