Abstract

The article summarizes the arguments and counterarguments within the scientific discussion on the identification of features of hybrid warfare.

 The purpose of the study is to identify the key features of hybrid warfare, their systematization for further study of trends, patterns, and principles in the subject area. To achieve the goal of the study: analysis of scientific sources to identify the existing features of the phenomenon of hybrid warfare, their systematization, and grouping by relevant areas, formulated conclusions and prospects for further research.

The relevance of the study is confirmed by the presence of a wide range of both domestic and foreign scientific publications, which collectively emphasize the general trend of changing the priority in the use of non-military instruments (methods) in resolving interstate conflicts over the military.

The identification of the peculiarities of hybrid warfare in the article is investigated in the following logical sequence: domestic and foreign scientific publications, individual guidelines are analyzed.

Methods of analysis, synthesis, and systems approach became the methodological research tools.

The object of the research is the phenomenon of hybrid war as a modern form of resolving contradictions at the interstate level.

The article notes an increase in all-around readiness to rapidly adapt to changing vectors and instruments of possible aggression through flexible adaptation of state institutions, the armed forces, and the consciousness of the population to new challenges.

The results of the study can be useful for scientists and managers who study problems of national security, development of the security and defense sector, and defense planning.
