ABSTRACT. The analysis of the conduct of wars and armed conflicts shows that confrontation in the military sphere is increasingly moving into the verbal, i.e. informational space. Information warfare implements asymmetric solutions and involves special measures. Destructive influence on the object is also achieved by carrying out informational and psychological operations directed against a person, a group, society and the state and affect their moral and emotional stability, as well as decision-making motives. Such influence is achieved through modern electronic means of communication and mass information. Based on the example of Ukrainian-Russian relations, the article examines the goals of information and psychological warfare, as well as the methods and models of influence used today.
