With the US and the UK becoming more and more hostile towards Russia, Moscow has announced it will make its foreign policy equally offensive, reports read.
“There are several key goals we need to reach to make our foreign policy more offensive to ensure a necessary level of national and public security,” the official said.
These goals range from boosting the stability of Russia’s financial system to ensuring that Russia can produce essential military to defend “the traditional values of the Russian society”.
The Russian Security Council boss said that, under President Donald Trump, Washington had shed all pretense of seeking cooperation has taken a position of open confrontation with Russia for standing by its allies.
“The latest example is the illegal missile strikes conducted by the US, Britain and France on Syrian territory”, he said.
Russia “is perceived by the US as a threat to its unconditional global domination” the Russian official added, saying would seek independent engagement with nations other than the US, and also those that currently follow America.
This may be difficult in the case of Britain, which deftly initiated the strikes on Syria by using the alleged poisoning of a former Russian spy who’d found refuge in England, but Russia appears quite confident it can also win over other European countries to its side.
The British are adamant about imposing more sanctions on Russia, but have been prevented from going all out for this by EU state vetoes. with Austria, Greece and Italy leading the way.
Meanwhile Russia announced it would arm Syria with its sophisticated new S-300 surface-to-air missile system, which General Sergei Rudskoi said would be delivered to Syria soon.
What this loudly proclaims is that Russia will stand by its commitments and squarely face whatever new sanctions the US-led bloc might care to impose.
