Putin: Russia’s task is to neutralize threats to national security
Russia's task is to neutralize any threats to the national security, including information warfare, Sputnik quoted Russia’s President Vladimir Putin as saying.
“Our task is to effectively neutralize any military threats to Russia's security, including those connected with creation of strategic missile defense, implementation of the global strike concept, the waging of information wars," Putin said during a series of meetings with defense industry officials.
Russia fulfils all its international obligations when designing and creating advanced weapons systems, according to Putin.
The Russian leader pointed out that some countries did not meet their obligations, for example, in the sector of missile defense, in order to gain unilateral advantage.
“In this relation, I shall note that we will continue doing everything in our power to ensure the strategic balance of forces. We consider the attempts to change it or break it extremely dangerous,” the president noted.
