Abstract: In this article the author turns to the history of appearance of the term “information confrontation”, attempting
to view and analyze the main concepts of information warfare, revealing the newest technological and
information communication achievements in this sphere. Information warfare is performed in the form of information
and psychological operations, their main purpose is to guarantee information dominance and dominant role
in managing political process, use of information and information structures for guaranteeing dominance. The
methodological basis for the studies was formed with the systemic, structural-functional, comparative historical,
comparative political, geopolitical, cultural-civilization methods, methods of analysis, synthesis, induction, deduction,
modeling, observation. Today information warfare serves as key means for military political operations of the USA,
China, the EU Member States. The main competing parties in the development of theory and practice of information
warfare are the USA and China, and there is a hidden competitive strife for leadership in this sphere between them.

in cases of potential danger.
