Summary/Abstract: Currently the rules of warfare have changed, switching from classic war to hybrid war. This new form of warfare is not explicitly incriminated by the international legislation. The Ukrainian conflict represents a tangible manifestation of hybrid war, after which the state has lost a part of its territory, it being annexed by the Russian Federation through a referendum semblance. Unfortunately, the required measures have not been taken in order for the Russian Federation to stop its disguised actions that pursue to reunite the former power pole, fact which represents a regional security threat.
