    Russian Security Council says new Maritime Doctrine keeps its goal of strengthening Russia’s position among leading maritime nations

    The renewed Maritime Doctrine of the Russian Federation has kept the goal of the national maritime policy - to implementation and protecting the national interests of our country in the World Ocean and strengthening  the position of the Russian Federation amongst the leading maritime nations, press center of Russian Security Council cites Mikhail Popov, Deputy Secretary of SC, as commenting on  the new doctrine.

    He noted that the “new edition of the Maritime Doctrine complies with the funDamental documents on national security of the Russian Federation and is a key document on the national maritime policy”.

    According to Mikhail Popov, changes in the world situation as well as in Russia’s social and economic situation, new security challenges, new aspects of scientific research and technologies forced Russia to amend the Naval Doctrine, approved in 2001.

    Besides, new strategic documents have been approved recently -  Russian National Security Strategy through 2020, Military Doctrine and the Basic Policy of the Russian Federation in the Field of Naval Activities through 2030. When elaborating Russia’s new maritime doctrine, a number of principally new provisions were added," Popov said. In particular, the provisions on maritime transport, internal water transport and a new point on the functioning of sea pipelines. Another new provision is known as "the Antarctic regional direction".

    "Previously, the tasks related to the exploration of the Antarctic were referred to the national policy's Indian Ocean regional direction. The main regional directions of the national maritime policy are the Atlantic, Arctic, Pacific, Caspian, Indian Oceans and the Antarctic area," Mikhail Popov added.

    He emphasized that civilian and military shipbuilding has been identified as a separate point in Russia’s national maritime policy for the first time ever. "Indeed, it is difficult to pursue an independent maritime policy without the development of shipbuilding and the associated industries," the official said. Special priority is put on ensuring environmental safety in the exploration of the World Ocean and on solving the social problems of people engaged in maritime industries.

    RF President Vladimir Putin approved the new version of the Russia’s maritime doctrine on July 26, 2015.
