Abstract. The article shows the aggression of the RF against the West with means of information and psycho–logical warfare – with the help of inventions, misinformation, fake. The presence or absence of opposition from the Ukraine’s, the European Union’s, the United State’s side is actually a litmus test for adequacy, compliance, maturity, ethics, or cynicism among politicians, journalists and observers, countries and regions. Also, the author believes that the enemy can not be underestimated under no circumstances, because it can lead to defeat. Therefore, in the context of information warfare and in order to balance the informational and disinformation regional and global communications spheres, today Ukraine needs to return to the idea of the possibility of training specialists in information and psychological work.
