EU’s hybrid threat centre to be set up in Helsinki

The centre is expected to assume a major role in promoting strategic-level understanding of hybrid influencing and developing responses to hybrid threats in the European Union. The EU has taken determined steps to improve its readiness to respond to hybrid threats since adopting the joint framework for countering hybrid threats in mid-2016. NATO is similarly committed to enhancing its resilience and has adopted a counter-hybrid strategy including strengthened co-operation with the European Union. “Coercive and subversive activity to confuse, complicate and hinder decision-making processes has increased. Elections have been interfered with in manners that are not appropriate,” Timo Soini, the Minister for Foreign Affairs said, adding that such hybrid tactics have put the internal cohesion and resilience of the society to the test.
