"We were discussing (at the Security Council meeting) the National Security Strategy, supplied by the given draft strategy (of Russia’s economic security until 2030)," he said.
The updated strategy names all the challenges and threats Russia is facing in the economic security sector nowadays. It sets goals and tasks along with the indicators needed to assess implementation of the strategy and presents the steps needed to ensure the country’s economic security.
