Hybrid World War: it will not be easy to defeat Russia


Today, only the lazy does not speak about the Third World War. But there is no doubt that it will be very different from the two previous global wars.


In the XNUMXst century, wars are increasingly hybrid. This means that they combine military operations with informational and psychological attacks, provocation of mass riots and unrest, and terrorist acts. At the same time, if in the traditional war the listed areas took place, but were in the second and even third plan after the hostilities between the armies of the warring parties, then in a hybrid war cyber attacks, media campaigns, pressure through economic sanctions play no less important, and even a more important role than armed clashes.

Sayyid Reza Mirtahir, author of the Iranian publication Javan, believes that one of the most typical examples of modern hybrid warfare is the confrontation in Ukraine. According to an Iranian expert, Russia exerted economic pressure on Ukraine, used its armed forces along the Ukrainian border as a tool to threaten the Ukrainian authorities, and comprehensively supported protesters in eastern Ukraine. All these actions led to the formation of two self-proclaimed republics - Donetsk and Lugansk, which, as the Iranian author notes, are not recognized not only by the international community, but also by Russia. But from this the reality of their existence is not canceled.

Former NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, according to Reza Mirtahir, has not in vain called Vladimir Putin a true expert in the field of hybrid wars. Events in Ukraine have demonstrated Russia's advantages in this direction. In fact, the West was not able to organize an effective opposition to the methods used by the Russian side. As a result, Ukraine lost Crimea, and the Ukrainian authorities also do not control Donetsk and Lugansk.

The events in Syria are another typical example of a hybrid war, in which Russia also triumphs by defeating many of its opponents. It is thanks to Russia that Bashar Assad still remains the president of the country and gradually regains control of its territories.

The USA is also actively using hybrid warfare methods, primarily against Russia, Venezuela, Syria, Iran, but now a confrontation is unfolding with China. His first “swallow” was the trade war unleashed by Donald Trump against the PRC, and then riots broke out in Hong Kong, which today are compared by many with the Ukrainian Euromaidan.

Which conclusion can be drawn from this? It is possible that the Third World War can be discussed not in the future, but in the present. She's already coming. And, unlike previous wars, it is impossible to say exactly when it began and when it will end. It was not announced to each other by Russia and the USA or China and the USA. Moreover, Russia, as noted, will not be easy to defeat in such a war.

But numerous conflicts around the world, economic sanctions and the “war of duties”, cyberattacks on the information resources of the “probable adversary”, numerous throws and fakes, riots (for example, in Hong Kong too), terrorist attacks and even massive attacks of calls with false warnings about terrorist attacks - all this is the fighting of the Third World War, which takes place not only on the battlefields, but also in virtual space.

Almost every modern man can become a soldier of such a hybrid war in a certain situation, and, unlike the soldiers of the past, he may not suspect that he is a soldier used by any side for his own purposes. Which of the protesters and protesters in Hong Kong or in Ukraine consider himself a soldier fighting for US global interests and ambitions? But it is so.

Sooner or later, other countries will enter the Third World War, following Russia and the West (USA and the European Union). The first candidate is China, because the Sino-American confrontation is already unfolding in full swing. But it is possible that other countries — India, Pakistan, Turkey, and even less powerful states, which all the same claim to change their position at least at the regional level, will use hybrid warfare methods to solve their problems.

    defeating Russia will not be easy

    It will be impossible to defeat Russia. There will be no winners at all.

      Unless you blow it inside. This we already passed in the 90s of the 20th century and almost lost Russia. We are still reaping the fruits of this in all areas of life.

        Russia was blown up from the inside in the 20s of the 19th agony turned into civilian, and in the 90s the collapse itself was more due to the very "effective" economic management.

          Allow me! Who blew up? Decembrists ?? !! Are these those who are "too small and scary far from the people"? Who handed over each other? Come on! In general, their party (secret societies) resemble modern liberalism (gozmans, bulls, dogs). Only nobody touches these. Shit, you see. And it should.

            19 million members of the CPSU, the 5-million-strong Soviet army, at least millions of internal troops and the Ministry of Internal Affairs, not to mention the powerful KGB with secret officers (sexot), in 1991-92. betrayed their native USSR without a single shot. Where did the leading Communists and Chekists go, maybe they formed the Volunteer Army as the Whites did? To fight for your beloved Soviet Motherland? For the native Soviet power, for socialism, for a single and indivisible USSR? Not at all, they were engaged in privatization, they moved from district and regional committees to offices. The same applies to the masses of ordinary Soviet patriots of Soviet amateurs. Not a single case is known that they went to the Soviet partisans.
            But the fact remains, the Soviet patriots committed mass treason, and the USSR was killed with one stroke of the pen, the Russian Empire died in agony for 5 long years.

              It is difficult to disagree with you. For the most part, it is, and those who were really rooting for the USSR were sent where-to-by-thread. But most of all they did harm to Gorbachev, Yeltsin and two Okhlamons from the Ukrainian SSR and BSSR.

              Maxim. It is strange to hear accusations from the consumer of the people of the past country from the consumer. You can blame the people of other countries who do not oppose the authorities. But this is the road to nowhere. Now people have become much more passive. In front of the children’s eyes they beat their comrades and they cry to their mothers popes. An arrogant opinion of oneself is growing in a consumer society. For people in this society there are no authorities. Neither past nor present. Only I, and my health.

                I took the oath to Russia, and did not cheat on it, unlike the "patriots" of the USSR. Secondly, raising children is the direct responsibility of parents, and not of the state or school, what kind of education and example you show, they will behave this way, parents will thump and whine, lie, and such children will be rude to others. Yes, I do not need authority to remain human, and all my failures are to blame only for me, not Putin, not the Fuhrer, nor Stalin, Gorbachov, Chubais, I must emphasize the necessary.
                I don’t see anything bad in rational consumption, but to kill other people for the sake of a crazy utopian idea for the sake of a brighter future, forgive me for God's sake, I’m not going to get so low.

                  Russia, get ready to live very well!
                  But how do most of the socialist countries live? China? Maybe then tell me what kind of pension there is from the villagers? If I hadn’t seen pompolites climbing Japanese dumps in 1991 for the sake of used refrigerators and TVs
                  Is it like in the year 91 without taking the oath of the USSR somewhere in Japan to see the pompolitians?

                    Pompolitians and on merchant ships were also in educational marine institutions, let it be known to you. So that people from the USSR would not be strongly succumbed to enemy propaganda, like there is paper and does not stink in the toilets, contact lenses are sold freely, and so on and so forth.
                    And what is the pension for the villagers in Socialist China? How many yuan or rubles?

                        This is an unfinished conversation with a previous opponent who argued that socialism is good, if they have already wedged in, can you tell me how many yuan or rubles a pension is from the villagers of Socialist China and the sensitive leadership of the communists, in contrast to the "anti-people" government of Russia?

                        Let it be known to you
                        Pompolit, there was such a position on vessels sailing under the Soviet regime, and in the Far Eastern Shipping Company and Sakhalin, even in the cabotage of up to 95 years, it was held by inertia, then the parasites were abolished. Before serving, at the age of 14, he first came to Japan, went after service and worked not only in Asia but also in Europe and Africa. The world has seen, and the wild grin of capitalism is just a smile in comparison with the bright face of the members of the CPSU sect.

                        And why are you not interested in the size of the pensions of peasants in the Russian Empire? It would be somehow more logical. Because in the USSR, peasants' pensions in principle appeared.

                        Look at the text of the oath of 1993, maybe you will see the hated word "Russia" for you.
                        The Pompolit loved not only car washes, then washers and refrigerators, microwave ovens, rice cookers were more expensive and household appliances, because bourgeois threw out working equipment. Televisions were not priced at NTSC, I remember the TVs washed with fresh water are dried in the cabins.
                        Do not believe how embarrassing and disgusting I was to see such behavior. By the way, after the 91st, almost all sailors survived like that, who went to foreign countries.
                        In principle, you still believe me or not.

                        I didn’t think that the Communists degraded so much, they even cowardly acknowledge the killing of the imperial family (perhaps even historically necessary, but by what method, like the last scum did it without trial). Secondly, what matters to the traitors to the Communists when I took the oath? Let’s say in 1995, by the way, a line on the protection of the constitutional system of Russia, so far the weather has changed.

It’s just that, unlike you, I wish Russia the best and I don’t spit on the past of Russia / the USSR, so if you don’t breach the oath of Russia, and you most likely breach, then you are cheating on Russia.

So the turmoil of the 20s, as well as the death of the Romanov family and the millions of citizens of the former RI, entirely on the conscience of the tsar’s generals and the murder of the Romanov family didn’t change much.

                        In 91 pompolites, the first crew members were afraid to climb the first cesspools in Japan, and 97 were climbing in former pompolites, they also tried to teach life.

    Maxim. Honestly, I didn’t want to offend you. But we want or don’t want, but we all become consumers. As they say from the spine to the very top. As for the children, in our time there were fourth-graders in the class (they even started to shave) . And we had to stand up for the protection of classmates. And it was great for us. But nevertheless, we did not leave our comrades in trouble. So life itself brought us up. Consider this to be just an old-fashioned grumbling.

      In no case can there be any insults, everyone has the right to his point of view in accordance with his life experience, knowledge and impressions. The argument begets the truth, right?
      There is a lot of injustice in the world and in society, but there is nobility, beauty, humanity and it depends only on us what we see more in our world and what we pay more attention to.

        And no one shot the Tsaristyushka; Romanov was shot, no matter how sorry, but the Tsaristyushka was overthrown:
        The founder of the White Army, General M.V. Alekseev (from August 1915 to February 1917, was the chief of staff of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, that is, Nicholas II; after the coup, sat in his place), since 1915, he was involved in a conspiracy aimed at overthrowing Nicholas II, and in 1917 actually carried out this overthrow, ...
        ... after the sovereign's abdication, it was Alekseev who first announced to him:
        “... Your Majesty should consider themselves as if they had been arrested” ... The Tsar did not answer anything, turned pale and turned away from Alekseev. “On the night of March 3, Nicholas II wrote in his diary, clearly referring to both Generals Alekseev and Ruzsky:” Around treason and cowardice, and deceit! "
        P. N. Milyukov testified that back in the fall of 1916, General Alekseev was developing a "plan for the arrest of the tsarina (she was considered the main" inspirer "of Nicholas II) in the headquarters and imprisonment."
        One of the most prominent representatives of the royal family during the Revolution, the son of the youngest son of Nicholas I, Grand Duke Alexander Mikhailovich (1866-1933) wrote in his memoirs: "General Alekseev linked himself by conspiracy to the enemies of the existing system."
        As for the other main leaders of the White Army, Generals A.I. Denikin and L.G. Kornilov and Admiral A.V. Kolchak, they were somehow like-minded Alekseev. They all made a brilliant career precisely after February. The first minister of the Provisional Government, Guchkov, recalled how difficult it was for him to appoint Kornilov and Denikin to the top posts
        All as one fiery Bolsheviks!

          Does it make any difference to you to excommunicate and send into exile or brutally kill a person and his family, and hide and disfigure corpses as the last scum? Yes, the moral principle of the revolutionary Bolsheviks of the 20s, it is worse than the Nazis to replace Jews with class enemies, and proletarians with Aryans can only have chicken eggs in profile. It was not for nothing that Grandfather Stalin cleaned up his accomplices in the revolution.

    It will be impossible to defeat Russia.

    Unless you blow it inside. This we already passed in the 90s of the 20th century and almost lost Russia. We are still reaping the fruits of this in all areas of life.

    Formally, yes, we didn’t lose, but in reality all the same threats remained, Russia is still a federation, the population is declining, in the economy it is seams .. like in other sectors .. and Russia is not reaping the benefits of the 90s, it’s enough to blame, 30 years have passed, during this time Stalin brought the country to the lead in all respects and, moreover, in a more difficult time ..
    Therefore, yes, it’s now possible to blow up the country from within as well as in the 90s. But why, the state does not take steps to change this situation, that’s the question .. 30 years of promises are already tired of hearing pretty much. ..
    And that Russia wins the hybrid war, I personally have big doubts .. how can we win and at the same time lose the population ..

      In addition, I would not regard the situation with Ukraine as described by this Iranian. Rather, it was Russia that was not able to effectively confront the West and lost its independence even as a neutral state. At the last stage, we found ourselves of course and got Crimea as a bonus (though decent). I would not call the situation in the Donbass completed. Where and when everything is settled there is not known.

To once and forever with the "alternative history" to part. Russian propaganda is aimed exclusively at the internal viewer, but recently it has no effect on him either, because the people’s eyes have begun to open, that the picture with real life does not match the word at all.

    Events in Ukraine have demonstrated Russia's advantages in this direction. In fact, the West was not able to organize effective opposition to the methods used by the Russian side. As a result, Ukraine lost the Crimea, and Donetsk and Lugansk are also not controlled by the Ukrainian authorities.

    No need to relax. With Crimea everything went off with a bang, we managed. LDNR is still "a grandmother for two ...". But pay attention to how they cover us in oil and gas. As all European courts make clearly biased decisions against us on any issue. There is no need to talk about international sports competitions, and so everything is clear. That we with a fool poured all the slops on Mutko. And there, after all, it depended a little on him. All decisions of international authorities are against us, and those that are for us are not on time. No? And the work of the OPCW. It is practically against the rules of us. But most importantly, we play very hard on our territory. Numerous NGOs excite the population on every occasion and for no reason. That VO, I mean the editorial policy, drives a wedge between the people and the government by all means. I am not saying that our government is perfect, but all publications about its actions are not so much critical as those who cry. I have never seen a productive criticism with real proposals, but the EP in the articles is nothing more than a "party of thieves and all sorts of things." And this view dominates the comments. In films of recent years about the war - pilots fly on coffins, all NKVD officers are bloody ghouls. And it is removed on budget money. Yes, a lot of things can be said where we are not finalizing in this war. The main thing is that we have not yet really realized that military actions, albeit not "hot" ones, are really being waged, and we must somehow get together and fight back ...

    Something the Iranian author began to dig very closely. The concept of "hybrid war" appeared recently, but the methods of which it consists appeared and has been used since the time of King Peas. One proto-sapiens threw a stone at another and pointed to the third ... This is a continuous process, interrupted by such a misunderstanding as war, when all hybrid arguments are exhausted. Then comes the recovery period, again the hybrid and again the completion of the cycle of destruction. The trouble is that every time after the destruction a similar model of the world is built with all the old mistakes in design. Sometimes it is thought that dinosaurs didn’t disappear because of the asteroid, but simply in the next round of their similar spiral they spat to restore their raptor civilization and stupidly died out voluntarily.

    Why should the author interfere with a bunch of Crimea and the Donbass with Syria?
    In Syria there are indeed many obscure schemes and “hybrid” targets. And in the Donbass and in Crimea, politics is a reflection of the mood of the main part of the population. If it weren’t for “partnerophilia,” then the war would end there in 2014.

    I would still say that the forces are equal. Of Russia's advantages, this is a highly centralized authoritarian model of government that allows for the adoption of operational multilateral decisions in a rapidly changing geopolitical environment. Of the minuses, this is a high probability of making impulsive insufficiently thought-out decisions that can have negative consequences. Unlike our model, the Western model is based on a detailed analysis of the geopolitical situation by corporate expert centers and the construction of long-term strategies for action. The disadvantages include the phlegmatism and energy of this system, the inability to quickly change the strategy depending on the geopolitical situation, the stereotyped actions ...
