Any offensive would most likely feature bombing raids, missile strikes and cyberattacks that could devastate Ukraine's military infrastructure, disrupt communications and pin down ground troops.

CRISES AND CRISIS COMMUNICATION

A crisis can be qualified as an unforeseen adverse event that requires immediate action by the organization and can harm a company's reputation by undermining its emergency procedures during an unforeseen outbreak. Leaders within a company must understand crisis responsibility and anticipate the possible attributions of the public.
