    China’s authoritarian regime severely curtails many of the fundamental freedoms which citizens in democracies take for granted. In the two months following the detection of the first case of COVID-19, Chinese Communist Party Officials refused to listen to medical experts, punished those who shared information about the novel virus and censored media coverage. IAD’s Founder & Public Affairs Manager argues: if China were a democracy, a political system in which freedom of expression and freedom of the press is indispensable, it could have been possible to contain the COVID-19 outbreak at an early stage.

But if Russia started the war by invading its peaceful neighbour, why do media outlets not use terms like “Russia’s invasion of Ukraine” instead? And why does it matter how media outlets refer to it? IAD’s Public Affairs Officer Ane Mestvedthagen argues: Let us call it what it is. An illegal invasion. An act of aggression. Carried out by Russia.
