Translated literally, ‘maskirovka’ means ‘disguise’, but it also points to strategic, operational, physical and tactical duplicity. When heavily-armed, mask-wearing gunmen – labelled the ‘little green men’ – took over government buildings in Crimea last year, was it a classic example of maskirovka in the 21st century? All nations use deception as a strategy in war, but Analysis asks whether any other nation has pursued guile as an instrument of policy for so long, and as ardently as Russia.
