The role of multimedia resources in information warfare in wikimedia is investigated. A new approach to uploading files in Wikimedia is proposed with the aim to enhance the impact of multimedia resources used for information warfare in Wikimedia. The proposed approach is based on clustering of media files accumulated in Wikimedia commons. Media file clustering is formalized as an optimization problem with control constraints. A PSO algorithm with adaptive parameters has been developed to solve the optimization problem.
