The new doctrine points to the attempts by the United States and its allies to limit Russia’s access to the resources of the world oceans and vitally important sea lanes and the US desire to achieve naval dominance. The new doctrine envisages “diversifying and stepping up maritime activity on the Spitsbergen, Franz Josef Land and Novaya Zemlya archipelagoes and Wrangel Island,”

Putin signed the document before the start of the Main Naval Parade of the Russian fleet noting that the document marked the boundaries and zones of its national interests.

“These are, first of all, the Arctic waters, the waters of the Black, Okhotsk and Bering seas, the Baltic and Kuril straits. Russia will ensure their protection firmly and by all means,” the head of state stressed.
