Event Details

​At the outbreak of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, Rob Blackie put together a volunteer-run campaign to smuggle independent, uncensored news about the war in Ukraine into Russia, using digital advertising. 

So far, his crowd-funded project has had 500 million views in Russia and has been featured in The Guardian and elsewhere. 

Rob will talk about how he has done this, how you can help, and what lessons we can learn as Lib Dem campaigners. 

Rob Blackie is a Lib Dem who has stood as London Assembly Member. He is CEO of a biotech strategy firm.
