Abstract [en]

For the first time since 1979 Russia has invaded another country, Georgia and Ukraine. Both invasions drew the attention of military experts who insisted that this was future warfare, the new generation warfare. Many of them imply that this new kind of warfare will replace the old kind of war that we are used to. However, there are experts who also suggest that some parts of warfare will not change, but instead grow in importance, for instance, deception. The studies aim is to investigate how deception was used by Russia in both invasions. This to strengthen or weaken traditional theories explaining Russian deception. The study uses Michael Dewars and Barton Whaleys theories to explain traditional deception. The result showed that the deception used was connected to Maskirovka, a traditional method for deception used by the Russians. Therefor this study could strengthen and argue that deception used by the Russians in these invasions still can be referred to as traditional.
