MOSCOW, December 26. /TASS/. Russia’s revised military doctrine that was signed into law by President Vladimir Putin on Friday for the first time ever lists the presence of foreign private military companies in the immediate vicinity of Russian borders as a threat to national security.

The previous version of the doctrine that was adopted in 2010 did not mention them in any way.

“The emergence or the hotbeds of inter-ethnic and/or inter-religious tensions, the operations of militarized international radical groupings and foreign private military companies in the areas adjoining the borders of the Russian Federation and its allies, as well as the presence of territorial contradictions and a growth of separatism/extremism in separate regions of the world,” says the text of the doctrine published at the Kremlin’s official website.

The previous edition of the doctrine spoke only of the “existence/emergence of the hotbeds of military conflicts and/or their escalation in the territories adjoining the Russian Federation and/or its allies.”
