No Cybergeddon: Evaluating the Lessons We Have Learned from the Russia-Ukraine Cyberwar

Konzept & Moderation: Julia Berghofer / ELN Policy Fellow

One year into the war in Ukraine, and while it is clear that cyber has played a role in the conflict, it has not played the dominant role that many had expected. Russian cyber operations have been limited and have seemingly held little in the way of strategic impact on the battlefield. 

The world has not yet witnessed “cybergeddon” but instead, a conventional war of attrition combined with nuclear threats. It is unclear if cyber’s limited role in Ukraine is a demonstration of a lack of offensive capabilities on the part of Russia or strong defensive capabilities on the part of Ukraine.

Crucially, what does this mean for future conflicts? What can European states and institutions like NATO learn about the characteristics of modern warfare, and what might this mean for their own cyber defence? What is it that the Bundeswehr can learn?

Join the European Leadership Network and Salon Luitpold in conversation with three formidable experts at the Munich Security Conference to delve further into these issues.


•             Prof. Dr Gabi Dreo Rodosek, University of the Federal Armed Forces, Munich 

•             Dr Kenneth Geers, Non-resident Fellow with the Atlantic Council’s Cyber Statecraft Initiative 

•             Sergiy Leshchenko, Advisor to President Zelenskiy’s Chief of Staff
