Mark Voyger, former advisor to the retired US Army Commander in Europe, noted that due to Russia's total failure on the battlefield, the Kremlin will try to drive the conflict in a hybrid way: drones, cyberattacks, propaganda campaigns, undermining the situation in Moldova and other provocations

He shared his opinions with Espreso TV.

Mark Voyger commented on Russia's recent information attacks, in which Moscow began to accuse the West of blowing up the Nord Stream pipeline, taking into account that the incident itself occurred long before the current information attacks by Russia.

"This is very logical from the point of view of Russian hybrid warfare, because the information component is the main one in the so-called Gerasimov doctrine, who is now the commander-in-chief in Russia. On the battlefield, Russians are almost a total failure, and they have not and will not have any serious gains. Therefore, it is logical that the Russian command and the Kremlin are trying to move the conflict in a hybrid way: using drones, stirring up the situation in Moldova. And now the accusations of destroying Nord Stream. This propaganda campaign is aimed at discrediting Ukraine, especially in Germany, to show that Ukrainians destroyed or ruined this major project, so the Germans and Europe had a gas crisis by the beginning of winter," the international expert explained.

Voyger pointed out that the information component here is directly related to political pressure.

"This war, unfortunately, is being waged in Ukraine in a conventional way, but in the global and European space it is a hybrid war, meaning that one of the elements is conventional, but the other is informational – how to politically shake up the situation. Accordingly, there will probably be more such provocations. And new cyberattacks will be launched. Therefore, we can expect that the authors of the hybrid doctrine, Gerasimov and his team, and, of course, the Kremlin, if they fail to achieve any progress, will expand the conflict using hybrid methods. And there will be no victory for Russia, the victory will be yours," said the former advisor to the retired US Army commander in Europe Ben Hodges.
