MOSCOW, December 31. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree to approve a new national security strategy of the Russian Federation.
A relevant document has been posted on the official website of legal information.
According to the National Security Strategy of the Russian Federation posted Thursday on the official website of legal information, expansion of NATO and the alliance’s approach to Russia’s borders create a threat to the country’s national security.
"The buildup of the military potential of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and vesting it with global functions implemented in violations of norms of international law, boosting military activity of the bloc’s countries, further expansion of the alliance, the approach of its military infrastructure to Russian borders create a threat to the national security," the document says.
Russia’s independent policy-making causes counteraction on the part of the US and their allies, says President Vladimir Putin’s decree on the Strategy of National Security of the Russian Federation.
"Russia’s strengthening is taking part on the background of new threats to national security that have a complicated and interlinked character. The independent domestic and foreign policy conducted by Russia triggers counteraction from the US and their allies seeking to keep up their domination in global affairs."
