Academic and military circles of the most powerful countries in the world have considered certain concepts of modern warfare, primarily taking into account their own goals and available capabilities. In that way, a theoretical basis was set for the coordination of all available military and non-military capacities, improvement of existing and development of missing capacities and elaboration of optimal methods of their application depending on defined goals, environmental conditions and opponents. The aim of this paper is to present the concept, principles and forms of application of hybrid warfare. At the same time, to emphasize the importance of coordinated use of all available capacities, military and non-military, in order to achieve or protect one's own interests. The modern strategic and security environment is very complex and requires the elaboration of concepts, methods and capacities that are applicable in the present and the near future. The traditional approach, which was characterized exclusively by the use of military means, today has limited use value. Keywords: military forces, concept, warfare, hybrid, hybrid warfare,
