Hybrid war tests the strength of the system

Hybrid warfare is a combination of various components such as economic and financial pressure, false and real attacks, influence, propaganda, information restart attitudes and values, psychological programming with defined targets, funding humanitarian missions, local and international coalitions, the implementation of the cyber attacks on the critical infrastructure and the whole sector, which ultimately has the ultimate goal of redistribution of resources and bioprogramming. However, direct military actions are applied locally, or without them at all. This optimization huge spending budget best.

Sword in the modern world no longer at war, while the massive information attacks, cyber operations, combined with economic pressures to quickly and effectively able to restart the society and to ensure the achievement of goals. Hybrid wars are fought in the information and technological environment and are complex in nature, where the value of the information component is very large. Accordingly, the countermeasures should be integrated. Integrated safety and professionals on this profile, in this case, the shield, whether company, industry or state.

It should be noted the fact that the information field, the virtual space of the Internet legally protected very poorly, and international law in the field of hybrid wars and not formed. No supranational system for punishment, the decoupling of hybrid war. Most of the ultimate goal of a hybrid war becomes visible only towards the end of the action, it manifests itself at the point of the Golden section, when synchronization is performed all components at their point of Assembly, you can make already reliable conclusions.

Can you tell me now about the main thing. The main target of hybrid wars, as a rule, are of the state system of strategic importance – be it the health system, education, various security systems, those which are components of the national security system of the country. They are tested for strength, it is applied to the main shock.

Actor of a hybrid war may be not only a country but a Corporation. War-the whole industry for businesses that it brings billions in profits. In this case, the state, and all mankind may fall into the trap, when the country's national security is not under the control of the election authority, and certain influential groups and large corporations. In this trap may be like the whole country and the whole population of the globe if something suddenly goes out of control "master". The threat is local, but its implications can be global.

Today the World is faced with the consequences of a global nature. We see a biological threat in the form of coronovirus observed a huge wave of information, the avalanche of fake news, the economic and oil crisis of redistribution. Became visible, and the events preceding all this – we all remember igilovskih a wave of terrorist attacks around the world, then fake threats in our country's schools. During manifest and the hidden, the unmanifest while public threats.

We have seen the status of health systems in different countries. Now everything is focused on that. We see in some European countries destroyed the system of vaccination, we see the flaws of health insurance in the United States and other issues. So in some European countries was the lack of physicians, and half a year earlier we watched as the burning forests of Australia, due to the fact that this year the government in this country save on the funding of fire services. But it's all direct functions of the state, which the market considered it unnecessary-no customer-no expert. While it is well understood that the fire is not intended for mass orders, it happens once and everything burned. A hybrid object of attack in the political space is increasingly becoming a system of legislation, because as you know, the roots of all these problems are precisely in the law. So, now we have to look in that direction in anticipation – of our legislation in terms of tiberindwa, cyber security in various fields and industries, for example in the field of Maritime safety, marine of the country is extremely important. Special attention must be in relation to government systems and functions. If we follow the previous period of 5-10 years, we see how he tried to strike at the system a pilot system in Russia that we have today in the end is unbalanced. Also it must be noted, as trying "good intentions" to break "historical principle" in our fishing industry, which is now in spite of all the work and feeds the country in this difficult time. And many such examples.

Today, in stable countries with a high level of life of population of the state and business are clearly separated, and therefore the level of corruption is low. It is not clear that there is no turbid mixing of government and business that we had with the collapse of the USSR in 90-e years, and then developed in various forms. In such a confusion at the end there is a lot of risks and financial costs.

Give an example of pilot services, which are one of the main components of systems of safety of navigation in sea countries where the pilot during the pilotage performs a public function and protects the interests of his country. In Maritime countries that refers to the system of Maritime safety is tightly controlled by the state, and pilot support, is usually regulated by a separate law. In Norway, Sweden, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Greece, the leader of the world economy – China and other pilot service today state. In other countries, where the law of non-state pilotage organizations are established directly by the pilots on the system of "Self Employеd Pilot", they are controlled by the state not less rigidly, than state. Systems vary by country, but nowhere in the field of Maritime safety did not interfere with business. We have the same in the mid-2000s, there was this phenomenon with the result that today about 500 million rubles annually flowing out of the sphere of safety of navigation in private pockets. While the traders settled in the 15 exceptionally profitable ports and oil terminals 67, the state is forced from the state budget to subsidize the unprofitable pilot service in a number of ports, including North. In the end, the lack of full state control over private pilotage companies and the use of pilotage has led to the fact that most sea ports lack the modern pilot boats, pilotage specific equipment, personnel pilots and ensure their personal safety. If you look at the problem in light of the development of tiberindwa and given the fact that we have Arctic - an area of national interest, and the whole naval component for us is a strategic direction, the functionality of the pilot can be supplemented. Russia needs as quickly as possible to bring the system of pilot schemes in the country to a competitive mind and modern challenges, as indicated by the Strategy of Maritime activities of the Russian Federation 2030.
