COUNTERACTING RUSSIAN AGGRESSION IN INFORMATION SPHERE

N Yakovenko, G Piskorska

Abstract


Aggression of Russia against Ukraine has implemented the concept of modern hybrid
threats. Information assets are becoming instruments of force. Opportunities have been
created to combine them with armed force. Russiaʼs regular use of negative information and
psychological influence on Ukrainian society is one of the most significant threats to information
security of Ukraine. The problem of effective opposition against Russian mass media propaganda
today, is extremely urgent for the EU and Ukraine, where the strategic narrative is in
the process of formation. In fact, the cooperation between Ukraine, the EU and other international
actors in this aspect would be topical and useful for all sides.
Key words: hybrid warfare, aggression of Russia against Ukraine, information space, information
security, strategic communications, propaganda and counter-propaganda, strategic
narrative, EU recommendations.
