Putin and Russia Name U.S. as Threat to National Security for First Time

In a new security assessment, Vladimir Putin pointed the finger at the United States as a threat to Russia's national security. The document, 'About the Strategy of National Security of Russian Federation', was signed by President Vladimir Putin on New Year's Eve.

According to military news reports, it is the first time Russia has officially named the U.S. a national security threat. The document replaces the 2009 version endorsed by former President Dmitry Medvedev, which didn't mention the U.S. or NATO.

Why did Putin and Russia name the United States as a national security threat for the first time? There is no one simple answer.

The deterioration of relations between Moscow and the West seemed to stem from Russia's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014. Western nations have repeatedly accused Russia of funding insurgents in Ukraine despite Moscow's denials.

Russia also claims its heightened global reach and increased role in solving global conflicts has caused "counteraction from the USA and its allies, which are striving to retain their dominance in global affairs."

The new security assessment document claims that Western pressures will likely lead to increased "political, economical, military and informational pressure" on Russia.

Moscow also claims that U.S. has expanded its military biological labs in neighboring countries.

Time to put the world leaders in the ring then let’s see how much saber rattling goes on. Settle it the gentlemans way instead of dragging the rest of the worlds people into something that nobody ever wins.
