How Russia wages its war on the world—and why it matters.
In the early months of 2022, Russia’s major escalation of the ongoing Russo-Ukrainian War brought Moscow and the West into open conflict once again. But Russia has been waging a clandestine war against the West for decades. Hostile acts abroad—from poisoning dissidents to shooting down airliners, election interference to murder—have long seemed commonplace. What is it all for? And what does it achieve?
In this book, Keir Giles explains how the scope of Russia’s power and influence goes far beyond its atrocities in Ukraine. Reaching into the realms of military, politics, diplomacy, espionage, cyber power, organized crime, and more, Giles breaks down what it means for political leaders and the ordinary people caught in the crossfire. In detailing how Moscow conducts its campaigns across the globe, Giles lifts the lid on the daily struggle to protect governments, businesses, and societies from Russian hostile activity. Russia’s War on Everybody reveals the country’s hostile intentions for the rest of the world as far broader and more ambitious—and the ways it tries to achieve them far more pervasive and damaging—than we realize.
“Giles has long been one of the most informed and consistent voices warning about the threat Putin’s Russia poses its neighbours and the West as a whole, and this book is a combative and comprehensive assessment of the challenge. It deserves to be read and discussed widely.”—Mark Galeotti, author of We Need to Talk About Putin
