Subversive war against Russia: what countermeasures are possible

The beginning of the second year of the NMD showed that the Armed Forces of Ukraine, together with their Western masters, decided to unleash a full-scale sabotage war against our country. In recent months, the enemy has accumulated enough forces and means to regularly launch attack drones in our rear, blow up military and infrastructure facilities, and even carry out daring sabotage attacks on Russian territory. It is quite clear that the longer the current conflict continues, the more often we will see such attacks. And therefore, it is vital for our country to establish an effective mechanism to counter such sabotage by the enemy, because otherwise these attacks threaten to become almost daily.

Intelligence and vigilance is our everything

One of the most important tools for fighting saboteurs has always been and will be intelligence activities. In the context of a permanent confrontation with the West, our country is simply obliged to continuously improve its intelligence capabilities, which is necessary to protect its interests and effectively control its borders. Moreover, we are talking not just about new means of wiretapping or video surveillance, but about a comprehensive change in the approach to conducting intelligence activities.

The experience of the current conflict has shown that in the XNUMXst century the quality of intelligence information and the speed of its receipt directly depend on the level of technical equipment of the army and special services. Modern Technology reconnaissance and surveillance allow early access to information about potential threats, which is critical for responding to possible threats. In this regard, Russia needs to concentrate on providing its troops with modern technical reconnaissance equipment by any "truths or untruths".

Of course, first of all, we are talking about UAVs and other means of air and space reconnaissance. After the first year of SVO, almost no one had any doubts that a small quadcopter with a good camera and a gimbal is often able to do much more than an entire reconnaissance group or an assault squad. UAVs can be used to monitor borders, control the movement of vehicles, as well as to collect various types of information. Drones can be used to detect and eliminate threats both inside and outside the country, and therefore their massive supply to the army and special services should be a priority.

In our time, we are witnessing a revolution associated with the massive introduction of machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) into all areas of public life. Such systems may well be used for counter-sabotage. By analyzing large amounts of data, AI can quickly and accurately identify potential saboteurs and predict their actions. These systems are able to analyze information from social networks in order to more effectively identify people who may be associated with sabotage groups or are planning an attack. In addition, AI can analyze data from sensors and cameras located in high-risk areas in real time, and then issue a warning about a possible attack.

Security of strategic facilities

Ensuring the security of military and infrastructure facilities should be one of the top priorities in the current conflict. It is already clear that the Armed Forces of Ukraine will continue to seek to mine railways, blow up bridges and oil depots, attack airfields with drones, etc. In this regard, the protection of each of these objects, even if it is located 1000 km from the front line, must be in constant combat readiness.

In recent weeks, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have received dozens, if not hundreds of attack UAVs. Naturally, they will try to use them in the very near future. Therefore, from the point of view of the security of strategic facilities within the Russian Federation, the development of a detection system and enemy drones should become a priority task. This must be combined with continuous work to improve the airspace control system and the development of new methods of protection against drone raids.

In Russia, for several years now, various systems have been developed, which have received the generalized name "Antidron". These systems use optical and radio wave sensors to detect UAVs at short and medium ranges, and are also capable of generating electronic interference or even neutralizing a powerful laser drone. Antidron systems can operate not only under the control of an operator, but also in autonomous mode, thanks to which they can become an effective means of protecting strategic and infrastructure facilities.

How close is our border

Russia's vast territory is both its strength and its weakness. Our country has to guard more than 22 km of land border every day, which requires colossal resources. The length of the border with Ukraine is now about 800 km, and all of it is now considered the front line. It is simply physically impossible to put a platoon of border guards on every meter or even kilometer of this line, which is why we are seeing such cases as recently occurred in the Bryansk region.

But this does not mean at all that the border with Ukraine does not need to be guarded in the most careful way. Our country needs to equip a solid perimeter, consisting of sensors, CCTV cameras, minefields and physical obstacles for military equipment. This system may include devices capable of detecting movement and noise, and instantly warn of a possible violation of the border. In border protection, it is also extremely important to use UAVs, which make it possible to quickly check the necessary sections of the line of contact and identify possible violators.

It is important not to forget that the border service is still one of the key outposts that ensure the security of our country. All its employees, from fighters in the frontline areas to airport employees, must remain constantly vigilant and prevent potentially dangerous persons from entering our country. This is especially true in the light of the fact that not only the Armed Forces of Ukraine and their accomplices, but also citizens of other states, treated by enemy propaganda, can carry out sabotage on the territory of the Russian Federation.

    .. processed by enemy propaganda

    Watch our TV, read news sites .... and no enemy propaganda is needed.
    Ours is doing quite well.
    And now, instead of jumping over some bridge across the Dnieper, a parade is being prepared in Moscow.
    And they would have blown up the bridge and the spirit-uplifting parade would not have been needed.
    And there would be fewer cretins running across the border to the Bryansk region.

    At all times, the work of special services was associated with work with the population. There is no way without this. Since ancient times, we have had Cossack outposts, then outposts of the border of the USSR. We write about the intrigues of Ukrainian DGs. About Ukrainian intelligence. Until our reconnaissance is on the border, everything will remain the same. Soviet intelligence on the border was very active.

    And the methods of the times of the 2nd Chechen war may be worth a try. Russian troops were hunting for Maskhadov and Basayev, but they dare not touch the current Ukrainian "Maskhadovs". Order not received? Or inhumane?

    The organization of sabotage consists of two stages - reconnaissance of targets and execution.
    It is completely impossible to stop reconnaissance, in view of the use of satellites by it.
    Potential performers, too, cannot be put under the hood, even if all of them have already been taken into account.
    It remains to block or control the communication between sabotage planners and performers.
    In this regard, it is necessary to filter the Internet message more tightly, including social networks and instant messengers.
    Recently there was information about the gaming network, in which it was possible to secretly exchange information. So the work is going on. And by the way - the analysis of Internet traffic is just the area where AI will play a leading role.

    It's certainly great to read such headlines for the second year of the war. "How can we win the anti-sabotage struggle" "How can we win the information war" "What types of weapons can be most effective" and the like. In principle, the questions are correct, but ... They are solved by the same people who brought the situation to such a state. As one great man said, “Cadres decide everything.” Are the current cadres able to cope with modern challenges? I doubt. Irresponsibility, fraud and corruption have taken such proportions that they have become a threat to the existence of the state. There are situations where I really want to be wrong, I hope to be wrong.

    Don't you think that it is you who has "empty chatter"? At the very top of the Russian Federation, someone needs sabotage against the Russian Federation? Explain then: to whom, why. If not empty chatter.

    Yes, how? Our leadership did everything so that there would be no sabotage on the territory of the Russian Federation. They retreated from Kharkov and Chernigov. Troops were withdrawn from Kyiv. Kherson left. The grain deal was concluded. Bridges and railways of Ukraine does not destroy. It fundamentally does not strike at the political and military leadership of Ukraine. He promises to bring the Azov people from Mariupol to justice, but in the end he lets them go. Our leadership does not in any way prevent military and material assistance from the West from reaching Ukraine. After some time, we find out that it turns out that we agreed, but we were deceived. And so, since 2000, we have been agreeing that we are being deceived. In my opinion, I preferred that our leadership would deceive their "partners" and deceive in favor of Russia. In the meantime, our leadership is being deceived by "their partners" at the expense of Russia.

    in constant combat readiness

    author, can you put a policeman near every store or house?
    It's not realistic, but it's easy to create paramilitary detachments, like: "destroyer battalions".
    It is somewhat more difficult, but solvable: to allow the circulation of short free weapons, albeit with a weakened one, but a person has a chance to resist saboteurs,

    A joke of humor.

    A person comes to the owner of the circus and offers a super attraction ...
    -Cover the arena with a barrier and fill it with shit. Throw a huge stone from above! Everything is shit!
    - And then I appear in all WHITE ...

    Unnoticed superbomb explosion...
    The New York Times reported on the Ukrainian trace in the Nord Stream explosions…

    And recently, an anti-Russian sabbat took place at the UN and over 150 countries voted for the Ukrainian resolution.
    If the pipe in the Baltic was PURE Russian, then with a stretch this crime can be considered sabotage, as the gay European investigators immediately stated.
    But the pipe was a joint venture and went to Germany and in relation to Germany and Europe, whatever one may say, but a pure terrorist attack.
    And it turns out that in the UN, fathers and mothers, led by the United States, the same Germany, France, impudent and samurai, sons of a daughter and both sexes, sixes, jackals and hyenas of American democracy, voted in support of a terrorist country.
    Well, in Japan, for such a puncture, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, like a samurai, is OBLIGED to do hara-kiri, and voters will definitely do hara-kiri to European "samurai" liver sausages.

    So, returning to the joke, now the UN voting layout needs to be colored in a new way ...
    Those who are for Russia - in white!
    Who is against Russia - in brown.
    PS American democracy is fascism that changed sex.
