The aim of information wars studies within the communicative and pragmatic aspect is the step-by-step consideration of communicative courses, the analysis of their efficiency and effectiveness. Such studying of information conflicts from the point of communicative and pragmatic positions has the essential practical importance as it can define effective strategies to protect information and psychological influence, to form a positive image of a country and also to serve as a practical guidance in national security issues during information wars. The language manipulation of mass media includes a number of strategies of speech influence when purposeful transformation of information and / or impact on the subjective sphere of the communicant is made.

Communicative tactics gain manipulative qualities, getting into the structure of the manipulative communicative strategy. The lack of specific tactics of the manipulative communicative strategy is the primary reason of obscurity of manipulation for the addressee.
