Putin Points to US Threat in New Security Strategy

A new appraisal names the United States as one of the threats to Russia’s national security for the first time, a sign of how relations with the West have deteriorated in recent years.
The document, “About the Strategy of National Security of Russian Federation”, was signed by President Vladimir Putin on New Year’s Eve, Reuters reported.
It replaces a 2009 version, endorsed by ex-president Dmitry Medvedev, the current prime minister, which mentioned neither the United States not NATO.
It says Russia has managed to heighten its role in solving global problems and international conflicts. That heightened role has caused a reaction by the West, it says.
“The strengthening of Russia happens against the background of new threats to the national security, which has complex and interrelated nature,” the document says.
Conducting an independent policy, “both international and domestic” has caused “counteraction from the USA and its allies, which are striving to retain their dominance in global affairs.”
That in turn is likely to lead to “political, economical, military and informational pressure on Russia”, the document says.
It also names the expansion of NATO as a threat to Russia’s national security and said that the US has expanded its network of military-biological laboratories in neighbouring to Russia countries.
