Abstract

In the aftermath of NATO’s 2008 expansion into Eastern Europe, the Russian Federation has implemented a new stratagem of hybrid warfare. One that aspires to reorient Eurasia around a Russian nucleus of power. A cornerstone of this new foreign policy? Civil society and the destabilization of western institutions in key countries such as Ukraine and the Republic of Georgia. Drawing on ground experience in Russia, Ukraine, and Georgia—as well as expert knowledge, this paper will analyze Russia’s use of civil society in the fight for Eurasia.
