Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev spoke about the fundamental aspects of the updated National Security Strategy of the Russian Federation before 2020. Patrushev believes that the activities of the Organization of the North Atlantic Alliance represent an increasing danger in global terms. He stated this in an interview with Rossiyskaya Gazeta.


What told Patrushev


December 22 evening "Russian newspaper" There was a great interview with the Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Nikolai Patrushev.

The update of the National Security Strategy of Russia up to 2020 of the year, the revised version of which is submitted for approval to the Russian President, is connected with the requirements of the Federal Law “On Strategic Planning in the Russian Federation”: this document requires updating the Strategy every six years. The current strategy is adopted in 2009 year.

According to Patrushev, the old strategy has shown its effectiveness over the past years: Russia has demonstrated the ability to protect sovereignty, independence, state and territorial integrity. In addition, the country's role in solving major international problems has increased.

Recently, however, new challenges and threats to national security have emerged. Here, Patrushev emphasized that the United States, with the support of other Western states, intends to maintain dominance in the world, for which “attempts are being made to restrict Russia's pursuing an independent foreign and domestic policy.”

“The threats posed by the military activities of NATO pose an increasing danger,” the Security Council Secretary further noted. And this danger applies not only to Russia, it concerns the entire planet: “The desire to build up and modernize offensive capabilities, deploy new types of weapons, create a global missile defense system, including around Russia, is eroding the structure of global security.”

Regarding the statements of Western leaders about NATO as a defensive alliance, the Security Council secretary said that such words "only cover up the aggressive nature of the alliance."

“The new version of the Strategy,” Patrushev said, “has set targets for countering these and other dangers, while national priorities, basic principles and approaches to ensuring national security remain unchanged.”

As for some features in the new version of the Strategy in the sphere of Russian defense, Nikolai Patrushev noted that the strategic goals of protecting the country from attempts to use military force against it were more clearly formulated, and more attention was paid to mobilization readiness and civil defense.

“At the same time, it is emphasized,” Patrushev explained, “that in order to protect its interests, Russia is pursuing a foreign policy that excludes costly confrontation, including a new arms race.”

Regarding the events in the Middle East, North Africa and the threats of world terrorism in general, Patrushev said that the document provides ways to counter the spread of radical ideology and its propaganda in the media, and also justifies the importance of increasing security against the terrorist threat of critical infrastructure, individuals, society, . The text stated that the practice of changing legitimate regimes using the “color revolutions” methods led to the spread of terrorism, and the emergence of the “Islamic state” was the result of a double standard policy that other states adhere to in the fight against terrorism.

Ensuring the information security of Russia also occupies an important place in the Strategy. The goal has been set: to bring objective and reliable information to the public and to strengthen the security of information and communication systems. Patrushev acknowledged that the problems of security of communication networks using domestic hardware and software remain relevant.

As for foreign policy, Patrushev noted, as before, will be built on the principles of equality, mutual respect, non-interference in the internal affairs of countries, mutually beneficial cooperation, political resolution of global and regional crisis situations. The goal of Russia is “to acquire as many equal partners as possible in all parts of the world.”

“The new version of the Strategy clarifies the tasks of cooperation between the Russian Federation and its partners in the CSTO, the Eurasian Economic Union, the SCO, in the Asia-Pacific region, Latin America, Africa and the Arctic. We are also interested in cooperation with the United States and European states, but on an equal basis. ”


According to the Secretary of the Russian Security Council, the essence of the updated Strategy is “strengthening the unity of Russian society, ensuring social stability, interethnic harmony and religious tolerance, eliminating structural imbalances of the economy, increasing the country's defense capability.”

So, the Secretary of the Russian Security Council focused on the danger posed by NATO: “The threats posed by NATO’s military activities pose an increasing danger.” And these are not any "duty" words or propaganda. Leading Russian military experts believe that NATO continues to move east.

“Yes, NATO is moving east,” said "Free Press" Leading expert at the Center for Military-Political Studies MGIMO Mikhail Alexandrov. - Develops geopolitical space, from which the USSR and Russia left. That is, the harm that Gorbachev did to our country, he is only now beginning to be fully realized. Not only that, because of his political myopia, the Russian nation was dismembered, and twenty-five million Russians were actually in foreign countries, there was also a deadly threat to the security of Russia. First of all, in connection with the advance of NATO to the east. "

According to the expert, at least it was foolish to believe that the Western military bloc would not act in its own interests.

“The fact is that Russia is the only military force that holds back the military potential of the West. And the West is now starting to lose in economic competition with other civilizations. And because even more resorts to military force to impose certain norms of behavior on other states. But the West can use military force in a very limited way, since there is a military-strategic parity with Russia. Therefore, its purpose is to destroy Russia. Then, any restrictions on the use of military force to preserve their global domination will simply disappear. ”


According to the expert, the destruction of Russia is "the strategic goal of the West." That is why the West is trying to create military superiority by squeezing Russia in the grip of military bases and deploying a missile defense system.

The head of the Eurasian Integration and Development of the SCO Institute of the CIS countries, military expert Vladimir Evseev suggested where exactly incidents might occur with NATO member states. “The Baltic countries may be the most real place,” the expert told the Free Press. - There have been quite a lot of incidents related to airspace violation lately. This is due, among other things, to the very complex geography of the border. And a large number of both military and civilian aviation in this region. ”

And yet, Yevseyev noted, after the incident in the skies of Syria, the Baltic states would be especially cautious about such clashes, because an armed conflict between Russia and the Baltic countries could lead to a single result: the Baltic countries would "actually be occupied." Understanding this, they will not go on their part to a serious aggravation.

So, Secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev noted that the threats associated with the military activities of NATO are an increasing danger. The alliance’s desire to build up offensive capabilities blurs the structure of global security. Statements by Western leaders about a “defensive” alliance only cover up the aggressive nature of the alliance.

Russian military experts also raise great concerns about the advance of NATO to the east. The destruction of Russia is the goal of Western strategists. The West is trying to create military superiority and squeezes Russia in the grip of military bases.

        Why should the Pentagon not push NATO toward Russian borders? After all, the “six” countries in NATO will be moronic to take the very first retaliatory strike, the Pentagon does not mind them. And the USA itself at the same time intends only to sit quietly behind the "puddle". Russia needs to have such armed forces that the US would not be able to sit out in retaliation in case of war. Then at the Pentagon and at the White House 100 will think twice before starting the war.

          The “National Security Strategy of Russia until 2020” does not indicate the threat posed by the pro-Western lobby in the liberal power of Russia, the 5th column of traitors who dream of warm places in the West and in the USA, at the expense of Russia.
          And she, this threat, as historical experience shows, is more dangerous than the external one.
          From an external threat, Russia has a nuclear deterrent and finally a strengthened Army, and from an internal enemy located inside the supreme power of the state, there is nothing.
          As it is not sad, the policy of robbery and destruction of Russia, and above all its internal enemies, does not collapse, it continues. It’s a pity that many people don’t see who should be in control.

    According to the expert, the destruction of Russia is the "strategic goal of the West."


    Now it has become an obsession with Western democracy ... and we will have to live with it and coexist for a second without forgetting about this danger.
    However, I would like to know about the details of the investigation of the terrorist attack against our citizens in EGYPT.
    There is a version that the recently destroyed Abu Musabi, who claimed responsibility for the death of the Russian A321 plane, is a figurehead who takes away traces from real killers .... who are they? Show their face in the sun.

    "the Russian nation was divided, and twenty-five million Russians were actually in foreign countries, there was also a mortal threat to the security of Russia" ....

    Well, where is the policy of counteraction? ... Words of Patrushev?

    “The essence of the updated Strategy is“ strengthening the unity of Russian society, ensuring social stability, interethnic harmony and religious tolerance, eliminating structural imbalances in the economy, increasing the country's defense potential. ”- And what's the answer to Chamberlain? ...

    Patrushev did not say anything new, the foundations of our strategy have remained the same and will not change for many years to come. Perhaps in 20-30 years China will also be added to the list of opponents, when it will be very difficult for him to feed “5 billion.” their citizens.

      What we did in the 91st still comes around to our children, to our great regret and sorrow.

        I want to cry.
        What the hell is it for us? The USSR was not able to offer its own path of economic development, in fact, we had a wartime economy, so we paid almost no attention to civilian products.
        Hence the total deficit of everything and everything.
        Bread, remember! Bread in Canada purchased.

        The backlog in the military and technological field accumulated every year.
        I note that the threat of a nuclear catastrophe was pushed back, because we walked on the edge, we have either the Berlin crisis or the Caribbean. It would be quite possible now to live in a nuclear garbage dump, if now they would walk along the streets in chemical protection suits and gas masks.

    “The most real place may be the Baltic countries,” the expert told the Free Press.

    The other day, I was thinking about where to expect a blow in the back, I was leaning on the Baltic Front, today I read a similar scenario in two articles from the media. Yes, no wonder the "partners" took off the muzzles of these "Dogs"

    "The day before the day after tomorrow" Sergey Anisimov. Here is a book describing (thank God a potential) scenario. The provocation in Kaliningrad and raced! True, it was written when the rearmament of the Russian Armed Forces had not yet begun, so we got there very much in the beginning. But the author nevertheless very clearly indicated the possible development of events. And by the way, the narrative contains real personalities of modern politics ..

    Officially, the decolonization of the new, twenty-first century, was nowhere proclaimed by anyone. In fact, she is already in full swing. Its distinctive feature lies in the fact that now it will not be the colonies that break away, but parts of sovereign states.

    Well yes. They lagged so far that even now some Soviet developments in the military and technological field have no world analogues.
    And now we are much closer to a nuclear disaster than 40 years ago.

    Dear, everything is correct, new threats, a new strategy, but the West will not start a war with Russia, not being sure of a victory, it’s not necessary, it will be military actions right away, first economic and political weakening, then the de-crediting of power, the split of society, and after that recruitment and possibly the start of hostilities

    All is correctly said. However, the real potential of power is made by those scientific and technological achievements. which should correspond to the level of time of occurring events. If it is also at a faster pace, then generally good. Moreover, the property expressed by the ability to create and modernize it at the lowest cost to the economy should be added to the combined power of Russia's weapons. Otherwise, the "arms race" processes will deplete and destroy this economy. Amers have more thoughtful about this, the whole country lives normally, and corporations are fighting. In Russia, the whole country becomes hostage to such events

    Patrushev then turns out to be a genius, figured out the enemy, and no one suspected. If only he had informed Putin that "our dear Western partners" are turning out to be enemies and have plans, otherwise the president is obviously not in the know.

    Internal threats can be clearly seen on the example of Tatarstan, Bashkiria and Dagestan. This is where basically you need to extinguish the fire until it flares up in full force.

    In such positions, a person should be constantly, and not change with each change of government or at the request of the left foot. Remember, Berezovsky and I visited this post. Imagine how much damage he did! Not by what I stole (I would like to put it more firmly), but by how much effort and money I had to threaten to close the holes made by his tongue in the defense of the country. If you recall one more, then Judah Bakatin is just a pot-bellied trifle when comparing the damage done to Russia.
