Russia‘s new military doctrine based on preserving ‘nuclear triad‘ ­ deputy Security Council secretary

MOSCOW. Dec 17 (Interfax) - Russia‘s new military doctrine presumes the preservation of a strategic nuclear triad to deter possible aggression, Russian Security Council Deputy Secretary Yury Baluyevsky said.

"It is planned to develop the ground, sea, and aerial components of the nuclear triad. They will all be preserved," Baluyevsky told Interfax on Thursday.

"Russia needs to guarantee its consistent democratic development using such a stability guarantor as nuclear weapons, as a form of strategic deterrence," Baluyevsky said.

The draft new edition of Russia‘s military doctrine has been approved by the permanent members of the Russian Security Council, he said.
