Fiecare cu viziunea lui…despre noua strategie a lui Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin has approved a new national-security strategy accusing the United States of trying to “contain” Russia through “political, economic, military, and informational pressure” and blaming Washington for the war in Ukraine.

The 40-page document, approved by Putin and published December 31, reflects the sharp decline in Russia’s ties with the West since the previous iteration, approved in May 2009 at the outset of U.S. President Barack Obama’s “reset” policy with Moscow.

The previous version mentioned the United States only three times and limited its criticism of the West largely to U.S. plans for a missile-defense shield in Europe and what it called NATO encroachment toward Russia’s borders.

The new document accuses the West for of trying to use “levers of tension in the Eurasian region: to damage Russia’s “national interests.” As an example, it specifically cites the ousting of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, a Kremlin ally, in February 2014. The United States has rejected previousaccusations that it was behind the protests in Ukraine or Yanukovych’s ouster.
