INFORMATION WAR. CASE STUDY: THE ROLE OF RUSSIA TODAY FOR COVERAGE OF THE MISSION CONDUCTED BY RUSSIA IN EAST UKRAINE - MAY 2014 - FEBRUARY 2015
Disinformation and propaganda activities are a basic element in the successful conduct of the hybrid war in the acceptance of the Russian Federation. Considering the technological and, especially economic, gap between Russia and the other world powers (USA or China) Russian military strategists have concluded that the full exploitation of the advantages offered by the skillful use of the information power tool, may lead to the elimination of the disadvantages of the insufficient economic development of the country or of the deficient endowment of the Armed Forces with military technology of last generation in serial production. In the following pages we analyzed the most important aspects of the information war carried out by the Russian Federation, using the well-known media (Russia Today), during the conflict in Ukraine, focusing on the themes and contents specific to each of them.
