Threats to destroy the new Russian missile weapons, which will violate the Treaty on the Prohibition of Medium and Small-Range Missiles, a proposal to implement a naval blockade of Russia with US Navy warships and the like is not the stupidity or inadequacy of American politicians, but a conscious part of hybrid war. The author of many such statements, US Secretary of Defense James Mattis, is a famous theorist. He understands that in a military sense, Russia is not inferior to America. However, his escapades and statements by other US officials in this sense are clearly structured: this is part of the informational and psychological pressure on the military-political leadership of the Russian Federation. The answer here is simple: we must have our own game.
Our weakness is that we are late in responding to their information operations. The task is to impose your agenda. But, of course, not fakes, but real complaints. For example, in Alaska: why did not all the money for it go to the Russian budget?150 miles from the recently closed Russian consulate in San Francisco is the so-called Russian California: Fort Ross Fortress and its environs. At one time there were more cannons there than on the entire US Pacific coast. For these lands America remained owed Russia a lump sum, but the money was not given to us. Where are they? Let’s start the trial, make statements, make your claims. The second example is two Russian squadrons in San Francisco and New York, which for 2.5 years defended the American coast from the attacks of the British fleet. We then defended the independence of the United States. Why not raise this question today, put a monument to Russian sailors there and not receive monetary compensation?
We must more actively oppose the use of information technologies for military-political purposes contrary to international law. There is no information spetsnaz as a separate structure within the Russian Special Operations Forces. Meanwhile, in February 2017, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced the creation of information operations troops: the formation of the Russian army, whose main tasks are to manage and protect military computer networks, protect Russian military command and control systems from cyber attacks, and provide reliable cover for them information. In the near future, this direction of ensuring the security of the country should become a priority.
