Rus­sia stands as a piv­otal play­er in the realm of geopo­lit­i­cal maneu­vers and cyber capa­bil­i­ties. Renowned for its sophis­ti­cat­ed use of cyber war­fare and intel­li­gence oper­a­tions, Rus­si­a’s influ­ence extends through a vast net­work of state-con­trolled enti­ties and covert oper­a­tions. The coun­try is also known for its strate­gic media oper­a­tions, such as RT (Rus­sia Today), which serves as a glob­al plat­form to dis­sem­i­nate its per­spec­tives and nar­ra­tives. This cat­e­go­ry delves into Rus­si­a’s mul­ti­fac­eted strate­gies in shap­ing glob­al pol­i­tics, its cyber ini­tia­tives, and the intri­cate web of affil­i­at­ed orga­ni­za­tions and state-spon­sored media that ampli­fy its geopo­lit­i­cal agenda
