This trajectory moves from (1) soft power to (2) humanitarian policies, (3) compatriot policies, (4) passportization, (5) information warfare, (6) protection, and (7) informal control or formal annexation of the territories where the compatriots reside. The discussion highlights the tight connection between Russia’s softer means of influence and its hard power tactics that may result in territorial annexation.
