BALTIISK /Kaliningrad region/, July 26. /TASS/. Russia's President Vladimir Putin has approved addendums to the Sea Doctrine, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Sunday.
"The document was presented to the president [today], and the president said today he has approved the Sea Doctrine," Rogozin told TASS.
Amendments to Russia’s Naval Doctrine have been necessitated by NATO’s eastwards expansion and Crimea’s rejoining Russia, Rogozin told journalists.
"The reasons necessitating the adoption of a new doctrine are rooted in the changing international political situation and Russia’s strengthening as a great naval power," he said.
"Special focus is laid on the Atlantic and Arctic directions. Attention to the Atlantic stems from NATO’s eastwards expansion and the Alliance’s building infrastructure near our borders. The second consideration is Crimea’s and Sevastopol’s rejoining Russia and the task of their swiftest integration into the economic life of our country. The third task is to resume the presence of our fleet in the Mediterranean," he said.
