War practice indicates that modern war conflicts, especially those after the Cold War, are significantly different from previous ones in which the mass use of military force dominated. This indicates that the characteristics of modern war conflicts are greatly determined by the features of the new concepts of war on which they are based, and the scientific consideration and explanation of new ideas and modern forms of war are inseparable. An essential feature of “hybrid warfare” and similar concepts such as asymmetric or irregular is contained in the fact that the role of armed struggle is minimized about other, non-military contents of war. Russia’s special operation is a classic “hybrid war” as an “armed conflict” carried out by a combination of non-military and military means to use their synergistic effect to force the enemy to take such steps that he would not act voluntarily. An essential role in achieving the goals of the war is the use of non-military means, such as psychological and propaganda operations, economic sanctions, embargoes, criminal activities, terrorist activities, and other subversive activities of a similar nature. The military operations of the attackers are conducted in secret by a combination of symmetrical and asymmetrical methods of combat operations against Ukrainian society and, in particular, against its political structure, state bodies and local self-government, state economy, population morale, and armed forces. As the most organized human community, the state functions in an objective environment, in which numerous and diverse subjects exist and function in its environment. Characteristic among them are other countries whose influence (positive, neutral, or negative) is suffered by each country and, of course, affects them. It is an influence and interplay that is often not characterized by chivalry but, unfortunately, immorality, deception, deception, and similar activities, including the use of physical force or the threat of its use. In such circumstances, possible inadequate information of a state about its environment, especially its security essence (how it preserves and develops its values and interests – respecting the UN Charter, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and International Law or subtly or grossly ignores agreed rules), can have detrimental consequences for its strong values, including its survival. Ukraine is a glaring example. The defense capability, in terms of deterring external bearers of unarmed and armed threats to its security and disabling them after undertaking threatening activities aimed at belittling, destroying, abducting, or destroying its identity, largely depends on its internal stability. The precondition for such peace is that all its citizens and social groups are united and satisfy their needs and interests by consistently respecting the agreed rules in the home country.
Contrary to such a desirable situation, many countries fail to achieve it or succeed, but in the short term. The reasons for this are numerous – objective and subjective, which, among other things, lead to the fact that individual citizens of a particular state express their dissatisfaction (justified or subjective) by secretly or publicly uniting in a collective to undertake illegal activities against the home country. Such a harsh social reality, which becomes even riskier by joining such individuals with external bearers, has resulted in the state making the necessary efforts to be solidly informed about its subjects who “jump out” of the system. Accordingly, we can talk about the collapsed security architecture of Ukraine as a precondition for conducting a Russian special operation and its success. as a result, the state has made the necessary efforts to be solidly informed about its subjects who “jump out” of the system.
