Now that 🇫🇮 is on the brink of sending an application to join #NATO, 🇷🇺 hybrid-warfare has picked up its pace. One crucial piece of that machine is the big network of "finnish" anti-vax/nato/whatever is required at the time websites and accounts, spewing nonsense to the public.
So how do we know about the 🇷🇺 involvement?
Simple, the do not hide their precence. Examples follow: koronarealistit dot net(com) is a professionally made website spewing covid nonsense, and traces back to 🇷🇺.
Another example: so called "Doctor clinic" Lääkärikeskus Aleksi 15, stationed in Helsinki that operates presumably under the company Clinic Estetic. They claim to offer medical services without covid restrictions of any kind. Website is hosted in #Russia. 1/2

"...we are already masters of information warfare … Hollywood is ‘preparing the battlefield’ … Information destroys traditional jobs and traditional cultures; it seduces, betrays, yet remains invulnerable.

"How can you [possibly] counterattack the information [warfare] others have turned upon you?
Our sophistication in handling it will enable us to outlast and outperform all hierarchical cultures …

Es ist doch so: Im Kalten Krieg gab es lediglich Anfang der 90er Jahre eine kurze Unterbrechung. Als sich KGB/FSB-Agenten aus Petersburg gemeinsam mit organisierter Kriminalität Ende der 90er das Land unter den Nagel rissen, wurde #InformationWarfare gegen den Westen massiv … 2

I feel deeply humbled by the opportunity that I could participate and talk at this weekend's #FutureofDemocracy Forum, the official side event of the #SummitforDemocracy organized by the @LithuaniaMFA in Vilnius.
A rather long THREAD 1-10.
My main message was that a #DemocracyAgenda focusing mostly on the malicious external interference of #authoritarian great powers and #AuthoritarianEncroachment can be easily doomed to fail for a simple reason.
External #ForeignMeddling is only in a small-part responsible for #autocratization and #illiberal developments in the Western World. The main drivers of autocratization in #EU & #NATO countries are overwhelmingly domestic.

On June 2, #Russia has finally unveiled its new National #Security #Strategy - the strategic document that was expected some six months ago. The document is very interesting and has #information security at its heart. #InformationWarfare 1/8
One thing that may immediately surprise some experts, is the total absence of the word "#cyber", so revered in our Western countries. This further confirms the difference in approaches to the issue of #InformationWarfare and cyber. 2/8
In terms of terminology, the document does not use "#InformationWarfare, but "#InformationConfrontation" (информационное противоборство). Of course no nonsense like "#fakenews" can be found in it, although there are references to #propaganda and #PsyOps. 3/8

1. On Societal Warfare. Attacks on civil society - whether professionals, community leaders and media weakens and intimidates the base of society. The part of society that if becomes cohesive, can express change - in particular non-violent change if basic political rights exist
2. In a coordinated attack on society #informationwarfare will exploit social divisions to prevent cohesion. Civilian targets are intended to make a government look weak. It creates a low-trust environment where people cannot agree on collective interest.
3. #StrategicCorruption cannot be understated and it can be fostered through division, fear tactics, promotion of self-interest and the co-opt of officials by other states or organizations. Combined with #informationwarfare it will paralyze government decision making.

1) Defeat Disinfo uses artificial intelligence (AI) and network analysis that maps President Trump’s statements to friendly discussion groups and the individuals who discuss them on social media. #InformationWarfare #PoliticalWarfare #Insurgency #DigitalSoldiers #DigitalArmy
2) In Intelligence parlance, THIS IS A COLLECTION EFFORT—but this one is directed at American citizens and U.S. persons. President Trump is not al-Baghdadi and pro-Trump Americans are not ISIS cells. #InformationWarfare #PoliticalWarfare #Insurgency #DigitalSoldiers #DigitalArmy

This is the visual representation of #Russia’s classification of modern armed conflicts. The #information conflicts are classified under the “domain” (place of happening) together with those happening in space and airspace, land, sea, and. #InformationWarfare
According to the principle of the use of forces they are: 1) classic, 2) asymmetric, 3) network-centric, and 4) hybrid. Even though #Russia approach to #InformationWarfare can engage it in all of them, but worth especially highlighting #networkcentric and #hybrid.
The armed conflicts in #Russia are also classified with the respect to “resources employed”. #InformationWarfare falls under “the use of #information and #psychological resources”.

🚨JFC Information warfare on Americans by Americans. NSA O'Brien's on the Sunday news shows sowing doubt on report #Russia's helping Trump—again. "If the intelligence exists, I hasn't seen it." Claims it's "commonsense" Russia would NOT want Trump—b/c he's so "tough on Russia."🤯
Gaslighting clown O'Brien not only sounds like an idiot, he sounds like the idiot in Helsinki: "I highly doubt it [intelligence]. Why would Russia want him re-elected? It makes no sense." AND calls #Russia's sweeping 2016 attack "a very small amount of election interference."🤡
Information warfare, courtesy of NSA. O'Brien denies intel Russia's helping Trump, but embellishes intel against Bernie. He said Russia wants Sanders as president—adding Trump rally line "honeymooned in Moscow"—but intel says Russia's disrupting Dem primaries. Putin wants Trump💯
