Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree approving the National Security Strategy. It is reported by TASS…
The new decree lists Russia’s main strategic priorities. Among them: the preservation of the people of Russia, the protection of traditional Russian spiritual and moral values, as well as environmental safety and rational use of natural resources.
The growing importance of the country’s defense is also emphasized. Among the main tasks, the priority is to protect the national interests of Russian citizens both in Russia and abroad.
“The strengthening of military dangers and military threats to the Russian Federation is facilitated by attempts to force pressure on Russia, its allies and partners, building up the military infrastructure of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization near Russian borders, stepping up intelligence activities, practicing the use of large military formations and nuclear weapons against the Russian Federation,” in the decree.
The previous decree of the National Security Strategy was adopted in 2015 and is no longer in force.
