P.W. Singer: How Ukraine Won the #LikeWar and Russia Failed At the Information Side of the Fight

From a story on politico.com by P.W. Singer headlined “How Ukraine Won the #LikeWar”

In modern war and politics, the information space is one of the most crucial parts of the battlefield. This is not about mere propaganda. If your ideas get out and win out, that determines everything from whether soldiers, civilians and onlookers around the world will join your cause to what people believe about the very truth of what’s occurring on the ground. And, if your ideas don’t win out, you can lose the war before it even begins.
