The incoming information is verified by a minimum of two independent sources, and more often, by three. If the information is highly controversial, we refer to witnesses and participants in the events. Behind every post and report lies the work of many people.
We use the information provided not just by our own sources, but by outside sources as well. If we receive new information we are unaware of, we apply our verification algorithm.
Only verified/proven facts become available to the public.
“IR” provides analytical materials prepared by its own experts (Center for Military and Political Studies), as well as Ukrainian and foreign experts from non-governmental and government agencies, as well as international organizations, invited to cooperate.
