Russian active measures against Ukraine is a microcosm of its active measures against the West. Please download and read this very important report. We can glean a lot from Russia’s hybrid wars against countries like Ukraine and Georgia, starting with the communist-named Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) and Luhansk People’s Republic (LNR)—the focal point of Russia’s divide-and-conquer strategy against the sovereign nation of Ukraine.

The report contains seven sections:

  1. The Three Tranches of the Kremlin Leaks
  2. The People Behind Russia’s Hybrid War Against Ukraine
  3. Ukrainian Vulnerabilities Exploited by Russia’s Hybrid War
  4. The ‘People’s Republics’ in the Donbas Region
  5. The Kremlin’s Phantom of Separatism and Chaos in Ukraine
  6. Political Meddling: How the Kremlin Tried to Change Ukraine’s Constitution
  7. The Kremlin’s Political Power: Reaching the Ukrainian ‘Soul’

Also contained in this report is an update to Soviet defector Yuri Bezmenov’s four-pronged Soviet strategy (demoralisation; destabilisation; bringing the situation to crisis point; and renormalisation). Analysts believe this strategy has expanded and now entails: Hidden Genesis; Escalation; Beginning of Conflict Actions; Crisis; Resolution; and Restoration, which is explained in greater detail in this vital report.
