Russian "Hybrid Warfare"

While Chapter 5 of the book focused on the conceptual development of the idea of the ‘Western gibridnaya voyna against Russia’, this chapter discusses how the different narratives represented by this idea influenced Russian military thought and were politicized by the Russian political establishment. The first part of the chapter examines the development of the theory of new-generation war, which many Western experts claim shares similar characteristics to the concepts of subversion, net-centric and information warfare (and, therefore, the concept of gibridnaya voyna). The second part of the chapter focuses on the politicization of these ideas, and on the ways in which the Russian military and the Russian political establishment have used the narrative of gibridnaya voyna to achieve their political aims.
