Counter Disinformation and Media Development (CDMD) programme 'supports HMG's Russia Strategy's objective to protect UK national security by reducing the harm to democracy and the rules-based international order caused by Russia's information operations.'[1]

The CSSF Summary state3s:

The UK does not seek to fight propaganda with propaganda. Instead, the UK promotes circulation and access to accurate information and positive engagement with those impacted by Russian disinformation. CSSF is best placed to deliver on this, as it brings together skills and resources from across the UK Government, along with external expertise.
The Russian Government invests heavily in propaganda, and information operations are integral to their foreign and defence strategies and have been utilised regularly e.g. as part of illegal actions in Georgia and Ukraine and in relation to high profile intelligence agency operations exposed in Russia and abroad.[1]
