NATO to focus on hybrid warfare, how to deter Russia | EURACTIV.com


NATO defence ministers are set to adopt several strategy papers and agree on a new master plan on Thursday (21 October) to defend against any potential Russian hybrid attack, diplomats and officials said.

Conflicts are “not only carried out with cartridges and bombs but also with bytes and big data”, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg told reporters on Wednesday ahead of the meeting.

The confidential strategy goes beyond existing regional defense and deterrence plans. It aims to prepare for any simultaneous attack in the Baltic and Black Sea regions, possibly including nuclear weapons and cyberattacks coordinated from space.
