    The amended version of Russia's National Security Strategy will prevent the country from being closed off from the rest of the world and envisages a proactive foreign policy.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has decided to make changes in the country’s National Security Strategy, the Russian Security Council’s press service announced Thursday.

    “The Russian president has decided to make changes in the National Security Strategy to provide for the succession of state policy in regard to national security, as well as the system of national interests and strategic national priorities,” the press service said.

    The amended version of Russia's National Security Strategy will prevent the country from being closed off from the rest of the world and envisages a proactive foreign policy, the Security Council said.

    Last May, Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev said the country's National Security Strategy and Information Security Doctrine would be modified to reflect recent trends in the geopolitical situation. "In order to bring the fundamental principles of Russia's national security up to date, we have started work on the revision of key documents on strategic planning — the national security strategy until 2020 and the doctrine on information security," he said.

    The amended version of the National Security Strategy should be returned to Putin for review by the end of 2015.
