B. Sajduk - The role of cyberspace in conflicts international. Preliminary conclusions from Russian actions during the war with Ukraine
For almost a year, Russia and Ukraine have been waging war, which has also included cyber actions. The Russian Federation did not launch the large-scale cyberattack that some experts predicted, targeting Ukraine's vital infrastructure. However, Russian cyber operations were still an important component of the overall conflict. The Russians have modified their tactics in order to adapt to the evolving situation. This commentary offers an insight into how Russia conducts offensive cyber operations and what is its potential role in future military conflicts.Read More o B.

Russia's war on Ukraine is being called the first full-blown "social media war". Social media play a significant role as a source of news, activism, rallying support, opposition, and, of course, manipulation. Unfortunately, the regulations and practices of the most popular social media platforms, which do not fit the reality of war, have turned them into tools conducive to Moscow's disinformation policy. It seems that Russia has gained a powerful ally - Facebook.Read More o D. Dziwisz - Social media war. Facebook's (Selective) Information Policy and the War in Ukraine
Forecasting the course of the Russo-Ukrainian war is like reading tea leaves. Nevertheless, it is worth doing it not only to practice assessing new phenomena but also to contribute to the variety of explanations. Thus, in our opinion, there is no end to this war in sight at the moment. A long-term armistice is unlikely, as both sides believe that they have reasons to continue fighting. The “Korean-style” semi-permanent solution, a sort of well-established peace without a permanent solution, is more likely. Still, it would require Russia to redefine its definition of victory, which represents a very distant possibility. The same goes for any lasting political solution. All in all, any long-term cessation of hostilities would require one or both sides to redefine their respective policies, which seems unlikely in the near term.Read More o M.
