Russia. Syria. War.

For Russia, hybrid warfare does not derive from the ability of Russia to fight well using a variety of tools with dexterity and flexibility; rather it stems from the lack of Russian ability to fight effectively with any single method. For Russia it is a sign of weakness: Russia is trying to hide what it cannot do; it is a signal of the lack of depth of its fighting capabilities. On the other hand, for the West, waging a hybrid war can be seen as a sign of strength, a signal as to the breadth of its fighting capabilities.
