Melnichuk P. Hybrid Nature of the Armed Conflict in The Syrian Arab Republic / annotation

Melnichuk Pavel – Military University of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, Moscow, Russian Federation.

The essence and content of the armed conflict in Syria is considered through the prism of the concept of a hybrid war. The main focus is on the analysis of various points of view on nature, goals, instruments of a hybrid war, presented in the domestic and foreign literature. It is shown that in modern international conflicts, the emphasis is increasingly shifting towards the integrated use of political, economic, information and other non-military measures implemented with the support of the military force. The need to bring the defense strategy of the Russian Federation in line with the challenges and threats of the information era, the development of the Russian strategy for a hybrid war and a counter-hybrid war is justified. It is concluded that it is important to understand the basic principles of an information-psychological war as well as the need for correct and successful use of sign and symbolic means within the framework of an information confrontation.
