Britain is in a new Cold War with Russia. Does that extend to a media war on both sides?

Will British journalists be expelled from Moscow, and, tit for tat, Russian journalists from London? What of the roles of RT (formerly Russia Today) and the BBC World Service in the propaganda war? Can Britain hope to win any cyber war over the army of state-sponsored Russian fake news and troll factories?

Big questions... Join us to try and find some answers on Monday, April 9 at The Groucho.
