Propaganda of total war, 2014[1]

Total war is concept, ideology and practice of performing a war, characterised in that, that any methods are allowed to reach military goals. These methods include the misinformation in media of mass propaganda, violation of both, national laws and international agreements, bombing, destruction of not only military targets, but also civilian objects and civilian people, using of non-selective weapon, including the mass destruction weapon.

Methods and the applications

The total war includes terroristic acts, and political murders; see, for example, Katyn-2, MH17, Putin killed Nemtsov.

Use of terroristic bands, id est, the hybrid war, is also considered as element of the total war [2].

Bombig of civilian objects is typical for the militaries of the USSR and Russia, including the Soviet invasion into Afghanistan (1979-1986), Chechen wars (1995-2000), Russian invasion into Georgia (2008-2018), Russian invasion into Ukraine (2014-2018), Russian invasion into Syria (2015-2018).

Use of chemical weapon by the Russian warplanes is reported, as well as bombing of cities and hospitals. [3]

In 2017, all the civil buildings of city Aleppo are reported to be completely destroyed by the Russian bombers during the Russian invasion into Syria.

Hague and sanctions

Performing of the total war is considered as "war crime". The international tribunal for the war crimes of century 21 is expected. Such expectations are collected in articles Hague and Nuremberg-2. As some intermediate step, some of war criminals happen to be under sactions; administration of the civilised countries do not want to deal with so–called blood money, and try to prevent the money laundering by the war crimes.


Evidences of phenomena of the Total war are collected in TORI with scientific goals. One of them is elaboration of efficient formalism for prediction of revolution. At the beginning of century 21, such a formalism seems to be, softly speaking, underdeveloped. Some evidences of this are collected in the Russian article Предсказания революций.

In particular, statements, collected in the cited literature, should not be considered as appeal to the unlawful murdering of the Russian administration, nor delivery of high energy devices to the cortege of the main terrorist, his residence, Lubyanka, Ministry of Defence, etc., even if the violation of the Budapest memorandum by Russian administration, formally, allow use of any weapon against them.

Total war is warfare that includes any and all civilian-associated resources and infrastructure as legitimate military targets, mobilizes all of the resources of society to fight the war, and gives priority to warfare over non-combatant needs. The American-English Dictionary defines total war as "war that is unrestricted in terms of the weapons used, the territory or combatants involved, or the objectives pursued, especially one in which the laws of war are disregarded." Hybrid warfare is a mix military strategy and political warfare that blends conventional warfare, irregular warfare and cyberwarfare with other influencing methods, such as fake news, diplomacy and foreign electoral intervention.[1][2] By combining kinetic operations with subversive efforts, the aggressor intends to avoid attribution or retribution.[3] Hybrid warfare can be used to describe the flexible and complex dynamics of the battlespace requiring a highly adaptable and resilient response.. There are a variety of terms used to refer to the hybrid war concept: hybrid war, hybrid threats, hybrid influencing or hybrid adversary (as well as non-linear war, non-traditional war or special war). US military bodies tend to speak in terms of a hybrid threat, while academic literature speaks of a hybrid warfare. For the purposes of this article, these terms will be used interchangeably.
