Abstract

In the framework of the hybrid war that is taking place in the territory of our state, the Russian Federation is widely using misinformation and propaganda to conceal the truthful information about the course of hostilities, misleading our compatriots and the international community. In turn, the use of information weapons creates favorable conditions for the intensification of the conflict in the west of our country, allows the leadership of the Russian Federation to deny the presence of its armed forces on the territory of Ukraine, provides a diplomatic coverage of military measures and the conduct of international policy of the Russian Federation. This confirms the existence of a real threat to Ukraine’s information space. In order to counter such threats and related information influences, existing methods of intellectual linguistic analysis of the text are used. Usage of these methods allows us to make a detailed research of information aggression against Ukraine for more effective counteraction and development of own means of defense for ensuring the national security of the state. Since the main space for disseminating of information is the Internet, the article describes the use of the developed software for monitoring the global network of the information aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine. Consequently, the purpose of this work is to analyze the information aggression of the Russian Federation in the global Internet with the help of a special software “Support Ukraine”. Existing tools for intelligent data processing and information confrontation are analyzed in order to achieve this purpose. The results of the analysis confirm the necessity of creating and using the indicated means. Its advantages are the convenience of using and the ability to create your own vocabulary. Due to this possibility, its capabilities are expanding.
