Ukrainian citizens hiding in shelters or fleeing their homes shared their stories on the Tik Tok platform, and at the same time, disinformation and Russian propaganda were spread, and thus, influential celebrities via the Tik Tok platform, followed by millions of users of the platform, increasingly sought to explain the dimensions of the crisis to their followers, according to The newspaper itself.  The American newspaper pointed out that "the White House was closely monitoring the rise of the Tik Tok platform as a dominant news source, which led to the decision to approach a selection of the most influential names on the platform."  The Zoom briefing was chaired by Matt Miller, the White House National Security Council's special communications advisor, Psaki, and Rob Flaherty, the White House's director of digital strategy.  During the conference, Flaherty said, “We recognize that this (TikTok) is a very important way for the American public to find out what's going on, so we wanted to make sure that holders of popular influencers got the most up-to-date information from a trusted source."  After the conference, many TikTok stars said they felt better able to debunk misinformation and communicate effectively about the Ukraine crisis.  On February 24, Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine, which was followed by angry international reactions and the imposition of "tough" economic and financial sanctions on Moscow.
