This a very good, short and to the point documentary on how Russia has been developing their disinformation operations. Having researched this field through papers and doctrine; I recommend watching this video. It is very succinct with real examples from the past and present in which the objectives and impact of these operations in western culture are assessed and investigated.
The documentary is a good intro into Russian Information Operations for those working in OSINT and Cyber Intelligence.
The most important questions it poses are:
- The challenge to counter-attack disinformation operations
- The role of social networks spreading disinformation
- The difficulty pre-empting and quantifying disinformation operations
- What is yet to come as a result of this stealthy form of warfare?
