Britain prepares for an offensive cyber warfare with Russia. In the UK, 40,000 new jobs will be created, including in the area of cybersecurity. They will engage in hacking and troll attacks, shaping public opinion in other countries.
The main thing is to influence the enemy (Russia, Iran, and China). Farce, forgery, misinformation, provocations, coordination of raids by robots and trolls – we saw it all perfectly in the example of the Belarusian events, when faceless and nameless “Belarusians” (with Polish, Ukrainian and Baltic States’ passports) directed thousands of abusive messages to de-anonymised security officials. [We saw] waves of “disinformation” about “the regime crimes”. While all of this didn’t help to bring the next Colour Revolution to fruition, it showed the awe-inspiring scope of the possibilities of this kind of “invasion.” If 40 THOUSAND new posts are created for this kind of “specialists”, and each will manage 10-20 accounts – that’s a huge army that can form an imitation of any “public opinion” needed! Indeed, it is potentially the most powerful destabilising factor globally.
Disinformation message against the UK implying it manages troll factories to manipulate public opinion.
On Thursday 19 November 2020, UK PM Boris Johnson announced to parliament the biggest programme of investment in British defence since the end of the Cold War.
