Deciphering Russia’s Cyber Attacks and Information Warfare Against Ukraine

12 January 2018 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm

Chatham House, London


Christine Dugoin, Researcher, Saint-Cyr Military Academy, France
Chair: Mathieu Boulègue, Research Fellow, Russia and Eurasia Programme, Chatham House



Since 2014, Ukraine has not only been fighting a physical war in separatist Donbas but also battling against large-scale cyberwarfare campaigns aimed at undermining its national sovereignty. Through various and identifiable information warfare tools, Russia has been targeting Ukrainian troops and military forces on the eastern front, notably seeking to disengage targeted units and affect them psychologically.

This event will present an analysis of cyberwarfare and information warfare campaigns carried out by Russia in Ukraine since 2014, as well as the defence mechanisms Ukraine has set up to protect itself in the information space. 

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
