Abstract. The article aims to examine the "indirect military operations" theory, to analyse the mechanisms of its practical usage at the modern stage of the society development and to identify potential dangers for Russia. Theoretical and methodological basis of the research includes the studies of the American "RAND Corporation" experts and the Serbian experts-analysts. The conducted analysis indicates the growing interest of political actors in the development of new "indirect military operations" strategies under conditions of tightening competition in the global political arena. In conclusion, the author identifies potential dangers Russia can face due to military net operations against it, justifies the necessity to develop an efficient strategy to resist "negative social manipulation".
