Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a special decree, according to which, the country ‘s naval war strategy is approved until 2030, in an attempt to counter the Washington’s ambitions to dominate the waters around the world, a thing which naturally poses a risk to the Russian national security.

“Current risks and threats to national security of the Russian Federation in the World Ocean exist and new ones emerge. Major of them are as follows: aspirations of certain states, primarily the United States of America and its allies to dominate in the World Ocean, in particular in the Arctic, and also to achieve overwhelming superiority for their navies,” reads a part of a new strategic document, titled “Basics of Russia’s State Navy Policy for the Period Until 2030.”

The document further notes Russia’s right to respond to a variety of threats, particularly territorial claims of foreign states, especially as regards the territories in Primorye region of Russia’s Far East, a higher number of states with efficient and powerful navies, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and of missile technology, aspirations of certain states to restrict access of the Russian Federation to resources of the World Ocean and to vital maritime transport routes, economic, political, internationally legal and military pressure on the Russian Federation with the aim to diminish its maritime activities in the World Ocean and to weaken its control of the Northern Sea Route, a historical national shipping route of the Russian Federation.

Russia is also concerned about the growing influence of international terrorism, piracy, poaching, smuggling of arms, drugs and hallucinogens by sea, in addition to the smuggling of chemicals and radioactive materials, as well as the risk of armed conflicts in the regions that are of great strategic importance to Russia and its allies, as well as in those that are overlooking the World Ocean. 

The document also aims to provide the Russian Navy and its equipment with latest technological upgrades, particularly as regards the cruise missiles that have already shown their strength effectiveness during series of successful strikes against the terrorists in Syria.
