ГИБРИДНАЯ ВОЙНА» КОЛЛЕКТИВНОГО ЗАПАДА ПРОТИВ РОССИИ
Today, the world is witnessing the development of a deep international crisis associated with the processes of changing the world order, which have reached their peak in the confrontation between NATO and Russia. The confrontation between the North Atlantic bloc and Russia, instead of an extremely destructive and catastrophic direct military clash, is being implemented by indirect methods. Thus, after the recognition of the independence of the DPR and LPR, as well as the start of Russia's special military operation in Ukraine, the acute phase of the hybrid war began. In this war, NATO countries and their allies act as aggressors, while Russia only takes retaliatory measures. The hybrid war of the countries of the collective West against Russia is of a large-scale nature and, assuming the defeat of the enemy in various areas, includes an economic, financial and transport blockade, the provision of military-technical assistance to Ukraine, waging a "diplomatic war", information confrontation, blocking cooperation and ties with Russia in the sphere of science, education, culture and sports, as well as, in general, the purposeful formation of a negative image in the public opinion of its citizens in relation to Russia and its citizens. Thus, the article provides a detailed analysis of this "hybrid war" declared by the countries of the collective West against Russia.
