NATO: Russia security paper designates Nato as threat

Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed an updated national security paper describing Nato's expansion as a threat to the country.

The paper says Russia's "independent domestic and foreign policy" has triggered a "counter-action" from the US and its allies.

It accuses these countries of striving to dominate global affairs.

The conflict in Ukraine, which began in 2014, has led to a sharp deterioration between Russia and the West.

The updated National Security Strategy signed by President Putin on Thursday is the latest in a series that are critical of Nato.

Note EU-Digest: This is quite logical: it would be wrong if Russia would make any other statement about the NATO.
