  • Putin names U.S. among threats to Russian security

    Bring it!
    Russian President Vladimir Putin holds his annual end of year news conference in Moscow, Russia, Thursday, Dec. 17, 2015.
    A new appraisal names the United States as one of the threats to Russia's national security for the first time, a sign of how relations with the west have deteriorated in recent years.

    The document, "About the Strategy of National Security of Russian Federation", was signed by President Vladimir Putin on New Year's Eve. It replaces a 2009 version, endorsed by then- President Dmitry Medvedev, the current prime minister, which mentioned neither the United States not NATO.

    It says Russia has managed to heighten its role in solving global problems and international conflicts. That heightened role has caused a reaction by the West, it says.

    "The strengthening of Russia happens against the background of new threats to the national security, which has complex and interrelated nature," the document says.

    Why shouldn't he think of the US in those terms?

      I'm surprised it has taken him this long to officially list us as a threat to their security.

            As the leader of a rival power with at least some pretense to growth - how else would he see the US? At least he's honest.

            Move along, nothing to see here.

              If anything, it's a compliment - with a defence budget of however gazillion the US has, you'd ****ing hope it was seen as a threat by a resurgent Russia.

                Because he's not actually a US Ally.

                    Who the hell cares? We did just find throughout the decades of other Soviet/Russian leader huffing and puffing.

                    Besides America's biggest threats are Global Warming, White Privilege, Christians, and our wanton lust for guns.

                      Don't forget man-spreading, dangerous ideas on campuses, and 'offensive' halloween costumes...perhaps second order threats?

                            That definitely covers it because white racism is the only kind that exists.

                              Does it? When it's practiced by blacks?
