Putin put forward new methods of warfare in the 21st century - The Washington Post



Can the West give an adequate answer?

Talking about the fact that, invading the Crimea, Putin acted as if he were living in the 19 century, they form a misconception about the significance of recent events. Putin did not miscalculate at all, he put forward new methods of warfare 21 century.

Before Putin invaded Georgia in August 2008, he spent many months deploying traditional military equipment. He rebuilt the railways and highways, so that he could easily throw them over Tanks and thousands of soldiers. He sent military aircraft to the Georgian borders. He also used the tools of state propaganda to prevent him from figuring out exactly who started this war.

But now Putin is no longer bound by national war. For many years, confrontation with the separatists, militants, terrorists and non-specific players seriously influenced his way of thinking. In the Crimea, Putin tried out the tactic of a “pop-up war” - a quick and veiled one that is likely to be widely used in the future.

First, a hidden army appeared out of nowhere. The soldiers without any identification marks were well prepared to incite riots and street fighting. These soldiers, whom, according to Putin, he did not send there, obviously, are not guided by any laws, rules and conventions governing the conduct of the war - as long as this has become Putin’s most serious challenge to the international order. These are a kind of hybrids of soldiers and terrorists: hidden faces, secret command and control, and secret orders, undoubtedly designed for the attainment of state interests. The lack of an obvious leader prevents the international community from responding, because it remains unclear who should be negotiated on the issue of a cease-fire or surrender. In addition, if armed clashes begin, it will be extremely difficult to stop them.

These irregular troops also pose a psychological threat to the local population and Ukrainians in general, because the latter do not know where the fighters of this hidden army can hide.

The second component of the Putin war of the 21 century is its virtual component. If we call it propaganda, it will be an understatement of the perfidious and poisonous nature of this information war.

The principles of cyber tactics were improved in accordance with Putin's new goals: the task is to destroy the channels of communication between legislators and authorities and to ensure the unhindered flow of Russian-language disinformation, announcing a new war with the "fascists."

Putin has created his own version of the reality that he is promoting in order to destabilize the situation in Ukraine. He decided that in order to achieve his goals he needed an ethno-linguistic gap, and then he distributed the roles. Now his version of this stories played out on hundreds of fronts and published on social networks — this is a virtual translation of evidence from Putin’s story about the oppression, persecution, and fear of the Russian-speaking population of Ukraine.

And the real situation does not matter here. Last weekend, ITAR-TASS reported that 675 of thousands of Ukrainians appealed to Russia with a request to grant them political asylum - later this story was picked up by Forbes and some other publications. Remember, in 2008, Moscow declared that 2000 civilians were killed in South Ossetia, after which it sent its troops there, which are still there today. Human Rights Watch experts later found out that all 44 civilians were killed in South Ossetia. However, Western news agencies cover Putin’s fake news as if they were really worth discussing. His falsifications and the resulting fear prevent him from responding quickly to his actions and weaken the determination of those who must stand against him.

Third, Putin uses financial markets as a tool for disputes. Having his own network, estimated at tens of billions, according to some sources, he understands well how financial strength works. Russia's wealth allowed it to make “partnerships” based on mutual financial benefits, and Putin relies on these ties.

Putin is well acquainted with this tactic. In 2007, a cyber attack disrupted the financial markets of Estonia for several days, and this happened immediately after a quarrel with Russia. Last week, Russian markets sank more than 10% due to the threat of a war, but Putin hastened to hold a press conference aimed at reassuring investors. Just think how much money he must have lost and earned again from Monday to Wednesday. When Putin brings his ability to manipulate markets to perfection, he will be able to increase his own condition and continue to replenish his reserves, which, from his point of view, make him inviolable. It is self-propagating, invisible. weapon.

Putin’s tactics create chaos, which he manages, the status quo, which allows him to influence the policy of Ukraine.

Putin invaded Crimea in part because it was the least risky way to test his new tactics of warfare. The Crimea, where Russian military assets are located and where the population sympathizing with Russia lives, is geographically isolated from the rest of Ukraine. Putin could confidently expect that there would be no physical response to his invasion from the side of the West, which was tired of conflicts.

For many years, Putin relied on a heavy hammer in the spirit of Soviet times. However, his recent actions indicate that the traditional army and intelligence have ceased to be the weapon with which he intends to wage war. While the West is considering how best to respond to it, Putin most likely is already moving on to the next stage: he is trying to figure out which international protocols can justify his actions and how his tactics can be applied in other places.

The time has come to abandon the decadent belief that the era of continental wars is in the past. In the future, the whole world will follow Putin’s status quo tactics and this is a reality that we must recognize and to which we should find an adequate answer.

              Journalists with limited education (they themselves chose courses to study), who do not have an accurate idea of ​​the history of Russia and Ukraine, and of the aforementioned Georgia, and do not particularly clearly represent the geographical position of these countries, are trying to accuse Putin and Russia of the sins that their country committed to the ears ...
              Change the surname Putin to any surname of the former or current US president, the country of Russia to the United States, move the place of action to any country where the US put its snout - and THIS will be an objective TRUT.

          I don’t understand what the disadvantages of this article are? In my opinion, it’s an excellent example of information for those who have the main belly rather than the head. I read it with pleasure. And I received pleasure not only from the incompetence of the authors, but also from the clumsy arguments against Putin.
          If such people try to analyze events, it becomes clear that the West has nothing to argue their actions ... There is simply nothing ... But Putin, like you and me, has long been used to the image of a monster devouring children ...
          And here it becomes very relevant Churkin’s speech in the Security Council ... Only with facts, only with documents you can not only destroy this influx of misinformation, but also sow doubt in readers of such publications about the honesty of writers ...

                    “We collect signatures for holding a referendum on whether to remain a bankrupt state, a ruined country ruled by criminal oligarchs, or join the Russian Federation under the authority of the president with successful experience of breaking horns on oligarchs,” says Bill Blatsky, head of Russia - Putin's presidency.

            Yes, the article is a sample that you need. The Ukrainians are now practicing misinformation specifically. The media in Ukraine is the worst enemy for the Ukrainians themselves. The media are completely bought by amers. So much excrement is dumped on people, moreover by specialists in psychology, national ethnos, "bison" who will make their mother hate her nonsense. And it cannot be stopped. Now in Ukraine there is a real anarchy of power, which the Nazis are quietly raking for themselves, with the gentle help of NATO consultants.

        In the United States, only comics are read, the level of development perceives only elementary images, bad-good. For the consciousness of retarded US citizens, the image of the enemy is important. So they create a far-fetched comic with the new insidious enemy of mankind. What to write is not important, it is important: here he is - the enemy! And the enemy for the United States, anyone who does not obey the anarchy of the United States, which they modestly call democracy.

            Thanks to him, the massacre was suspended, the "tyagniboks" would have already slaughtered the Russian-speaking population in Ukraine (not Russians, but Russian-speaking), as in Lvov in 1941.

      In Crimea, Putin tried out the “pop-up war” tactic - quick and veiled, which is likely to be widely used in the future.

      THIS IS THE MAIN THISIS OF THIS ARTICLE
      First, a hidden army appeared out of nowhere. Soldiers without any mark were well trained. These soldiers, whom, according to Putin, he did not send there, are obviously not guided by any laws, rules and conventions governing the conduct of the war - so far this has become Putin's most serious challenge to the international order.

      and this is so, I doubt that "polite people" appeared in Crimea in one day, and even in such numbers that they were able to blockade all military units and important life support facilities of the entire peninsula.
      Yes, further the author distorts the facts, but most likely from the fact that the information was mainly gleaned from the Western media, we know that the civilian population in Crimea is not bothered by the presence of "polite people"!
      so what is happening in Crimea can be called a military operation, and without a single shot and casualties, no matter how it happened, the West put this operation into a dead end, as the author of this article writes!

        katastrofa, there is an information war and acting in its realities, like a knight traveling to an honest tournament, is extremely unreasonable because the enemy will not go out into the open field, but will slash such romantics with arrows from far away (the Anglo-Saxons are not in the first - the battle of Cresius in 1346, when archers threw arrows at the French knights). Times have passed and are now shooting information. What is wrong with countermeasures against the information war? GDP - well done! Works competently and military and informational and legal (he needs the school).

      Putin created his version of reality, which he promotes, to destabilize the situation in Ukraine. He decided that in order to achieve his goals he needed an ethnolinguistic gap, and then he distributed the roles.
      Yo mine This is when we lost our virginity ?! Creating a virtual reality that is beneficial to the one who creates it, having in hand a means of manipulating this reality is an instrument of power, ancient as the world. And a means of warfare. And it seems to me even the shamans were not the first ...))) There are Russian interests, and power should be used to comply with them. Otherwise, it will be like that of Yanukovych ...

Secondly, who, besides the Americans during the Olympic Games, could organize an actual attack on sovereign states and blame Russia at the same time. Why were you a bastard who was silent when the Russian peacekeepers were shot in Tskhinvali? Why are you not talking about the snipers who left the American embassy in Kiev and the rooftops of the residence of the commandant of the "Maidan" shot and Berkut and their own? And you gentlemen Admins would have thought with their heads before giving the floor to the scum and the provocateur! The article is another anti-Russian de-rmo poured on our heads!

        Here, I believe, there are a lot of people who want not only to receive confirmation of their point of view, but also get acquainted with the arguments of the opponent / opponent. Washingtonpost is not some marginal newsletter, but the mouthpiece of the Pendostan mainstream - every word that comes out of it echoes all kinds of tapes repeatedly. I lie and other white-tape balabolas that provide information for our 5th column. It is better to get acquainted with the ideological weapons of the enemy here than to delve into the sewage of the echo of Moscow, foreign media, etc.

That is exactly how, of course, with variations to local conditions, the USSR acted in some places. The "world community" is still unaware of some episodes. Well, the old principle of "plausible denial" has not yet been canceled

      First, a hidden army appeared out of nowhere. The soldiers without any identification marks were well prepared to incite riots and street fighting. These soldiers, whom, according to Putin, he did not send there, obviously, are not guided by any laws, rules and conventions governing the conduct of the war - as long as this has become Putin’s most serious challenge to the international order. These are a kind of hybrids of soldiers and terrorists: hidden faces, secret command and control, and secret orders, undoubtedly designed for the attainment of state interests. The lack of an obvious leader prevents the international community from responding, because it remains unclear who should be negotiated on the issue of a cease-fire or surrender. In addition, if armed clashes begin, it will be extremely difficult to stop them.

      The gift of God is immediately mixed with scrambled eggs, banderlogs are described and they are trying to attach them to "polite people."
      Apparently, the West is beginning to disown the mess created by it, which means that the situation has got out of control of the Washington regional committee, and this is good ...

    It’s due to the fact that Putin first struck up a trade relationship with everyone, it’s true, because on that he gave a bunch of jobs with unemployment in Europe, so when they scare them with sanctions it looks like a miserable squeak from a mouse that hasn’t completely fallen into the mousetrap yet and here it’s already decides to stay in her place or let go, the same case as Obama, he gave the ladder to get off Syria. Many people don’t even understand what kind of policy Putin is playing, they say that he is in the clouds, but in fact they are sitting in the clouds of sodom and are not catching anything, it’s time to hammer trump places near Russia and they are digging their own grave, they are also slowing down the whole world.

      Putin differs from Western leaders in that he does not have a stereotyped thinking, sees the situation in perspective. It is in his actions that "soft power" can be seen, but the threshold is always felt when the power becomes not "soft".

      With ex it should be such that after it neighbors nervously go out from the envy of smoking to the balcony after it.

      Well, in principle, which we demonstrate. The West is again ahead of the rest - it invented the oral basics. repeat Each other and themselves are satisfied and are ready to burst with pride at the same time. but in fact zilch.

    Oh B.redyatina .... The leader only improved your tactics. or does acaedemi with chevrons on sleeves act? But the cyber space was not controlled by your well-trained hamsters. Even your poor employees can’t stand it anymore - they are running ...

    But the leader’s hammer remained as it was — it’s old hardened retirees and storekeepers who have not forgotten the experience of continental wars and who still have not dampened gunpowder in their buttocks, unlike your NATO warriors who are afraid of direct clashes. So our courtesy is a double-edged sword. Shovel over the bread and then politely, forgive it by accident. and so several times.

    Does the author of the article really think that there are stupid people in the post-Soviet space? And we don't need your articles (clippings) from WP, we know English perfectly and follow how black PR is going on in the Western media. Everyone already knows the truth, including many foreign analysts, political scientists, etc. So I don’t see any benefit from the article, they wanted to open our eyes, well, it seems that we have both eyes open, and yours (I refer to the author of the article ) We do not need a "one-eyed look" at the problem.

    we need to refuse a treaty on reducing nuclear weapons we have little time if there is still time to arm the army strenuously for a heap of funds allocated to the army to judge strictly regardless of ranks and positions and little by little laws to make it impossible to find a foreign agent in Russia

    NOW over the Crimea are operated by American drones.
    Recently, one such drone was shot down ... MQ-5B, judging by the airborne marking, was part of the 66th American military intelligence brigade, constantly deployed in Bavaria. In early March, the brigade was relocated to Ukrainian Kirovograd, from where its drones make reconnaissance flights over the Crimea and over the Russian regions bordering Ukraine.

    It looks like the RUSSIAN ARMY STARTED in combat with the Americans already at the level of drones ... how far can the Americans go in their impudence ??

      Excuse me, where does the infa come from? Especially about "... over the Russian regions bordering with Ukraine." - this is already a reason for retaliatory actions.

      He was "put in a carpool". This is a puncture, and a complete one, for Yusser. Now Russia has a sample of their UAV control and positioning system, and now this flock of chickens-drones will become bogus snags. Well, after that, the United States sang differently: they categorically refused military assistance to Ukraine. good And for this it is necessary ... drinks

    The article is a set of delusional theses created from false messages ... The United States has long used the tactics of a "pop-up war" which it is difficult to isolate an "alpha" male or female, since events arise spontaneously, that the opposition itself does not keep pace with the events and the formulation of its program ... With Ukraine, it is more expensive for them to fight, they themselves will surrender, feed them later, thousands young men in "captivity" ... It is the West that raises all kinds of trash - Nazis, Islamists and others, to release them from the chain at the right time and in the right place ...

    The priest got sick from the customers of the article, and retired. Both the jackals and the mongrels, who howled wildly for them, realized that their democracy, their right to rob, kill and rape with impunity ran into such opposition that they did not know and did not see before. And this is only the beginning. The beginning of their end is general and personal. Hiss further, western viper. Hiss and wriggle under our boot. Soon, soon the time will come to break the ridge and pull out the poisonous stings. Russians are coming!

    Everything is natural. They live in a fantasy world.
    Of course, I understand that we are very different, and we look at a lot from opposite positions.
    It seemed to me that the result of treatment depends primarily on the correct and reliable diagnosis of problems. Like Dialectics.
    Maybe I missed something? When did they recognize dialectics as pseudoscience?

    That is, only 44 people are a trifle, although why wonder if the thousandth victims in Iraq and Afghanistan are nothing for them, so there is some consequence ...

    The guys got something mixed up. All this refers to the Western "technologies of warfare", which these countries, led by an overseas uncle in Ukraine, unleashed in order to establish a "new order" in the world, read: their world domination. To turn the so-called "golden billion" into masters and all others into servants is the main task of this war. After the victory in this war, the "golden billion" will not work, they will be engaged in science, art, sports and "self-improvement", they will be a kind of patricians, and all the rest, - plebs, will hump for his good. But this ideology is unlikely to pass in the modern world, which has embarked on the path of respect for human rights, trampled upon in Western countries. There are also a billion Chinese people who today collect electronics at factories belonging to the West, and tomorrow they will gain self-awareness and take these enterprises into their own hands, driving out the presumptuous "owners" out. After the betrayal of the early 1990s, our troops left Europe. We are now reaping the fruits of this betrayal. Once again, European fascism unfolded its banners at our doorstep.

    In Crimea, Putin tried out the “pop-up war” tactic - quick and veiled, which is likely to be widely used in the future.

    Stop guys stop We urgently need to patent this tactic so that all kinds of Western provocateurs do not float around the world. wink

    "In the future, the whole world will follow Putin’s tactics of the status quo and this is the reality that we must recognize and which we should find adequate answer."Adequate response from inadequate personalities ... well, well .. belay A priori impossible.

      Without countermeasures, an information war cannot be won! The GDP understands this and works clearly, the trouble is that there are many of them and they sang well, and even all sorts of Judas. For countermeasures, you need to have your own circle! India - well done, spoke out well, more of these are necessary. And yet the main thing is power!

      Is there a maidan in Washington? Why the hell do we need this? We don’t need these obese, dull-headed illiterates. Every fourth Americanos does not know that the earth revolves around the sun. We will not build a maidan in AI, we better build a canal named after Stalin.
