The US Army has published a handbook on how to defeat Russia in a hybrid war, according to The National Interest.

The Russian New Generation Warfare Handbook was issued at the end of 2016, and appeared on the Internet not long ago.

The handbook includes photos and data on Russian equipment that might be used in the hybrid war. It also describes the Russian operations in Donbas and Crimea, which involved small special-operations troops— sometimes operating undercover—and small, heavily armed formations of regular Russian troops backing local separatist groups.

“It concludes that Russian strategy is based on achieving regime change through teaming up with local proxy forces, rather than conventional military victory by Russian troops,” the media says.
