Russia’s ‘New Generation Warfare’ []

In his article published in the Spring 2015 issue of NGA Pathfinder (Magazine of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency), Potomac Foundation President Dr. Phillip Karber describes the 5 distinct elements of Russia’s New Generation Warfare:

  1. political subversion
  2. proxy sanctuary
  3. intervention
  4. coercive deterrence
  5. negotiated manipulation

The closest analog in  United States doctrine are the soft powers of “DIME”, or diplomatic, information, military and economic, and their PMESII (Political, Military, Economic, Social, Information, and Infrastructure) effects. The Russian doctrine seems to be working well, and the United States needs to calibrate its doctrine accordingly as our interests in Syria are at odds.’s-‘New-Generation-Warfare’.aspx
