- In this article we explore the use of the #SaveDonbassPeople hashtag in the context of an online protest campaign against the military operation in Eastern Ukraine. The campaign was initiated by anti-government activists, but soon became contested by supporters of the Ukrainian government, turning Twitter into an online battleground. Our findings suggest that in the course of the campaign, Twitter was predominantly used as a propaganda outlet to broadcast opposing views on the ongoing conflict.
