Currently in Ukraine; history is being made and we have no right to stand aside and be passive spectators with popcorn in the first row. That’s why I’m with her, do not pretend to be fully objective, the parties will familiarize you with what is happening in the field of information confrontation between the Russian Federation and its opponents in the international arena, that is mainly the so-called Western countries.
THE NATURE OF THE WAR HAS CHANGED
Start with small portions of flattering words concerning article Musa Gamzatova Territorial defence in modern conditions”, published in “Independent military review” № 10 for 21-27 March 2014.
The author wisely and reasonably, with examples from history and contemporary realities informs the reader is very simple, in fact, the idea that the essence of the war in recent years has changed dramatically. All right, all right. But not a word about the fact that, in addition to military sabotage on the territory of the country, will take place and the information sabotage, and will sharply increase pressure information as to their own troops and the population, and on the enemy.
The conclusions of the article, in my opinion, it is necessary to add also the thesis that, in addition to a good weapons, equipment and outfit, for the successful conduct of the wars of the new generation of Russian Armed forces is vital to have a high quality, comprehensive and continuous, sustainable and inclusive information support.
But there is one nuance. If a soldier can dress, shoes, arm, and in a short time to train to the point of automation to fight in the conditions of a critical situation, he was not taken aback and did the only right way, that in regard to information counter, so will not work.
But ideological motivation is as important as quality equipment. But in the ideology will not put on shoes, it will not hang on to “unload”. Qualitatively to counter the disinformation in advance to reveal his purpose and plan may only well-trained specialist is someone who always keeps abreast of events and reacts instantly to them.
If this is not constantly engaged on a proper level, then again it will, as in the initial period of the great Patriotic war, when moving forward just a record pace Germans who feel their ideological and, to be honest, racial superiority, fell leaflets with the ridiculous calls for them to stop, because here, they say, the country of workers and peasants. “Oh, great,” he thought, probably in response to such calls invaders: “We just need workers and peasants to serve them!”
We already live in a new, digital and information of the XXI century. It is time for everyone to bear in mind that the further developing human society, the more it depends on the information. In modern warfare is not necessary to speak cannons. Today, instead of them quite successfully speak social network, the various media and Internet.
In this respect, note on Turkey, where on 21 March 2014 at the state level was taken a decision about blocking Twitter, and then and video hosting YouTube. Due to a leaked recorded conversation of high govt. officials_an excert
_ ELECTION DRIVEN WAR PLANS – I PART 1 Ahmet Davutoğlu: “Prime Minister said that in current conjuncture, this attack (on Suleiman Shah Tomb) must be seen as an opportunity for us.”
Hakan Fidan: “I’ll send 4 men from Syria, if that’s what it takes. I’ll make up a cause of war by ordering a missile attack on Turkey; we can also prepare an attack on Suleiman Shah Tomb if necessary.”
Feridun Sinirlioğlu: “Our national security has become a common, cheap domestic policy outfit.”
Yaşar Güler: “It’s a direct cause of war. I mean, what’re going to do is a direct cause of war.”
What a strong reaction this decision immediately provoked.
But let us return to the events in Ukraine. After March 13, arrived with a “working visit” group of forces psychological operations (PSYOPS) of the U.S. armed forces, the country found itself in an information blockade. Let me remind some famous episodes, well-publicized: ECM (electronic countermeasures) was stopped rebroadcasting some Russian satellite TV channels, was completely blocked the entrance to the mainland for Russian journalists produced power seizure disliked the new government to local media, is wiretapping of all international telephone calls and even is shameless and not stand any criticism ” scheduling in a conversation with Russian journalists at the time of their release to air.
One of the best examples of reporting of own correspondent of “Vesti FM” Vladimir Sinelnikov from Kiev.
During its outputs broadcast is heard repeatedly clicks, any switch, tones, and other irregularities. In the midst Kaidanovsky events, when the American curators still was not personally present on the territory of Ukraine, communications were interrupted by the employees of the Ukrainian security service by means of blocking SIM cards. Now, however, no interference, no, what I am concerned. Apparently, American experts came not with empty hands and caught the journalist on zhivtsa, trying to trace the call and send to the home address a gang of new national guard, so that they have done their dirty jobs for them to neutralize the objectionable journalist, objective reporting of events. This is now a La Gestapo on the new, high-tech level.
On March 22, 2014 at the radio station “Echo of Moscow” in the evening transfer from the mouth of Yulia Latynina sounded comparison of Vladimir Putin with Hitler.
The comparison was based on out-of-context phrases of that speech, which Vladimir Putin said on 18 March 2014. It might seem strange, naive, terrible, amateurish, disgusting, if not one “but”. Precisely such a “but” a lot. For example, the day before, on March 21, 2014, on the website of the Estonian newspaper Postimees – the biggest newspaper in the country – the article appeared with the exact same content. In this article, in addition to the comparative tables with quotations, and was posted a photo collage, designed to reinforce the visual image of that his actions and speeches
(President V. Putin) and hitler are the same. On the same day there were numerous “census” in social networks. Shortly before that, on 6 March 2014, the republican senator of the US #mccain and #clinton in various interviews made on tv compared
Putin to hitler.
Coincidence? Don’t be so naive.
TO_ BEAT_ THE_ ENEMY_ ITS_ INFORMATION_
If you look at how information is filed in Ukraine, it is clear – the patient is rather dead than alive. After all, just about dead people talk only good. But exactly exclusively on the positive side, there is a coverage of the events within the country. Excesses nationalists served as provocation of the Russian security services in economic hardship to blame Russia. In rampant corruption guess who blame. The collapse of the army? The answer is obvious. But the new-old Ukrainian authorities entirely knights on white horses, support for his people, promise the abolition of visas, freedom, justice and other threat. For example, promise to make Ukraine a European country. If somebody has forgotten, then take a look at a map – Ukraine is and so almost in the center of Europe. All actors promising a “European integration” and all the best for the people, were already in power. And what where the results of their work? Everything is new, as is known, the well-forgotten old.
In the current situation surprising is the position taken by the Western countries in the UN Security Council. I recommend anyone interested to get acquainted with the record of the meeting of the UN security Council of 19 March 2014. Very useful. For example, the permanent representative of Ukraine to the UN Yuriy Sergeyev, in early March, already famous for the fact that acquitted of Ukrainian nationalists-Bandera, saying that represented the USSR at the Nuremberg trials of the charges against them were allegedly rigged this time and had come to the point that, in his opinion, “the nuclear status of Russia as particularly dangerous for the territorial integrity and independence of Ukraine, as well as for international peace and security in the whole world community”. Like that. No more, no less.
Moreover, U.S. permanent representative to the UN Samantha Power, implying the reunification of the Crimea with Russia, moved to any criminal vocabulary, comparing our country with a thief: “the thief can steal thing, but it does not mean that he has the right to possess it”. The phrase is good, but applicable only yet to all actions the United States and its allies in the international arena over the last two decades.
It should be emphasized that at the meeting of absolutely all countries spoke against the actions of the Russian Federation, partially or completely ignoring the notorious lack of freedom of speech in Ukraine and its full of information isolation. And what about Western standards, freedom of expression and equal access to information that
are imposed on Russia? Whether in regard to mention that on March 18, 2014 broadcasting of the Russia Today TV channel was temporarily blocked by YouTube, which is owned by Google an NSA subsidiary.
By the way, according to the norms of Russian language, correct to speak not “in Ukraine”and “Ukraine”. No need to go on about the imposed by the Western ideologists or “Ukrainian patriots”, with probably some point in this regard, politically correct of courtesy.
There are rules of the Russian language to follow. If the “Explanatory dictionary of the Russian language” says that “Tallinn” is written with one “n”, then the way it is. Ukraine still easier. For Kievan Rus and later to the Russian Empire the Eastern lands of the Commonwealth were on the Western edge of the political map, edge or border area.
Therefore, to walk, to travel, to swim or fly only “on the edge” or “at the border”, and not “at the edge”. Say we “Cuba”, “in the Philippines”, and no reason of Cubans or Filipinos not offended. I do not think that for the sake of momentary benefit politically correct is to distort the native language. Linguistic security is also, incidentally, part of information confrontation. And part of the very considerable and important indeed.
Will help in this regard, to quote the book “the well-formedness of Russian speech” Groudine L.K., Itskovich, VA and Katlinsky L.P., published in 2001: “In 1993 on request of the government of Ukraine normative one has to admit options in Ukraine (and, respectively, from Ukraine). Thus, according to the Government of Ukraine, exploded not acceptable to its etymological connection designs on Ukraine and on the outskirts. Ukraine kinda got linguistic evidence of its status as a sovereign state, as the names of countries, not regions, are issued in the Russian tradition, with the help of prepositions in (in) and from…”.
The desire to push against Russia and Ukraine, to create war between two kindred peoples in some Western ideologists so great that sometimes it seems that the military aggression inevitable. However, there is hope for a sober head in Ukrainian politics who understand what is happening objective processes and really support the welfare of its own people, and not dancing to the tune of others, guided by personal interests. Where result greed and personal ambition, we have repeatedly seen on the Maidan.
Russia’s time to finally stop living on illusions that the West can be a friend.
Maximum – partner. China in this regard behaves much more appropriate. Informational confrontation, ideological war is a reality and objective reality.
“With the help of tanks, guns and planes can usurp authority over enemy territory, but not over the human mind.”
I wish those who are engaged in planning and development of military concepts, did not forget about the informational component.
It’s time to use the information weapon against its creators themselves and the main ideologists of its application. We need to beat the enemy with his own weapon, but to beat skillfully and on the spot!
