The Russian-Ukrainian war has made Ukrainian journalists, in a sense, military experts. Everyone tries to distinguish types of weapons, read maps, and use databases. This is how Ukrainian journalist and data analyst Yuri Malakhov characterizes their work today. 

He is a data analyst for the special project of the website texty.org.ua. The site presents the volume, frequency, and schedule of Russian disinformation channels. Data journalism helps counter Russian disinformation, which is mainly used to justify military operations by Russian troops in Ukraine.
