Putin: NATO Expansion, US Oceans Policy Are Top Threats to Russia’s Security
(Worthy News) – NATO exercises near Russian territory, and a U.S. policy of seeking “to dominate the world’s oceans” are among the greatest threats to Russia’s national security, according to a new naval doctrine signed by President Vladimir Putin on Sunday.
Marking Navy Day, Putin also announced that one of Russia’s most advanced new weapons, a sea-based hypersonic cruise missile, would be ready for deployment within several months.
“The major challenges and threats to the national security and the sustainable development of the Russian Federation related to the world ocean are the U.S. strategic course to dominate the world’s oceans and its global influence on international processes, including those related to the use of transportation lanes and energy resources of the world ocean,” the 55-page document states.
