On February 25, Atlantic Council senior vice president and Scowcroft Center director Barry Pavel was featured on CNBC segment “We’re in a ‘new era’ of European security, says think tank.” Pavel recommends that the United States and NATO target Russian civilians in a propaganda information campaign to reveal Putin’s corruption. Pavel further describes how this “new Cold War” between NATO and Russia will differ.

We are now in a new era of European insecurity as of this week unfortunately. It is sort of a move back towards the Cold War but it will be different….Number one there will be Russian conventional forces near NATO troops. Number two Russia will ramp its so-call hybrid warfare operations. And third, there is a lot of nuclear saber-rattling going on by Vladimir Putin.
