This report from UK think tank the Henry Jackson Society looks at Russia’s hybrid war against the UK and the fight back against the Kremlin.

Western governments have been complacent about Russian hybrid warfare in the last 15 years, according to a newly published think tank report. At a geopolitical level, much has been written lately describing how this Western weakness has emboldened Russia, culminating in the invasion of Ukraine. Weakness, as ever, is a provocation. This report focuses on the ongoing threat towards the UK and, by extension, to other democracies.
