The Minister of foreign Affairs of Lithuania Linas Linkevičius said that Russia is waging a hybrid war in the Baltic States.
The Minister of foreign Affairs of Lithuania Linas Linkevičius said that Russia is waging a hybrid war in the Baltic States. He said this in an interview on “Real time”, reports “European true”.
“This war is already happening – cybernetic war, information war. There was a time when the real battle used artillery preparation, on the eve of the real battle. Now this should not be done, you can simply brainwash and prepare a springboard for action. As, in my opinion, was in the Crimea”, – he said.
According to the Minister, the current understanding of security has expanded considerably, and if earlier it included only a military threat, now it turns on and the information component.
“We need to review your textbooks, you have to look at how things are going . Unfortunately, war is war, but such a confrontation and such attacks and provocation in terms of these asymmetrical hybrid threats happen in real time,” he explained.
At the same Linkevičius believes that bans and censorship are not the exit in the fight against hybrid warfare. In his opinion, most benefits would be the creation of alternative sources of information.
