CNA Online -

There’s a real concern that public and political support to end Russia’s invasion of Ukraine will fall as interest in the war dwindles. However, there are ways to fight the news fatigue, says Associate Professor and Associate Chair at the NTU WKWSCI and the Director of IN-cube Edson C Tandoc Jr.

He suggests that we should remind ourselves of why this news is important and how it affects not just Russia and Ukraine, but the rest of the world. Second, those who post about the ongoing invasion can include information that readers can act on. Lastly, taking short breaks from these continuous streams of messages may help us refocus our attention to what matters.
