As fighting continues on the ground, cyberspace has remained a secondary theater of the Russo-Ukrainian war. It is very clear that Russia is adept at employing cyber attacks in conventional conflict through hybrid warfare. It is clear that Ukrainian cyber defense has contributed greatly to undermining the effectiveness of Russian cyber attacks, showing that cyber defense is not a hopeless cause. Through this analysis, I review some specialists’ opinions about the possibility of putting an end to conventional conflicts by employing cyber attacks, and then I try to answer a basic question: Can cyber attacks put an end to the Russo-Ukrainian war?
