Military expert Vladimir Orlov expressed the opinion that the Pentagon is preparing to strike at least four Russian regions.
For its preparation, the US military department announced a competition of educational platforms offering courses in the study of foreign languages. The priority is Russian. The requirement is the simultaneous training of at least 200 people in a program that includes not only vocabulary and conversational skills, but also modules on the culture and "regional specifics" of the Urals, the Caucasus, Bashkiria and Tatarstan.
The expert also noted that the Pentagon needs people with these skills to "conduct operations on Russian territory."
Orlov believes that the staff of the newly created unit in the elite corps at Fort Bragg will be engaged in "influencing the information environment in specific Russian regions."
“A hybrid war with a mental meaning is being prepared against the Russian Federation, aimed directly at specific regions deep into the regions of Russia. Probably, among the official duties of “specialists in Russia” will include inciting nationalist sentiments (judging by the selected regions). There will be an attempt to provoke a new conflict - as, for example, they tried to do in Belarus, but already inside Russia," he said.
The Russian Armed Forces continue their offensive in the Krasny Lyman direction, an official speaker for the Russian Defence Ministry Lieutenant-General Igor Konashenkov told reporters on December 7
