Energy security above all!

The Russian National Security Strategy which was signed by Russian President Dmitriy Medvedev on 13 May is a rather voluminous work written by Russian academics and covers literally all spheres of life in the Russian Federation. Implementing the Security Strategy by 2020 is meant to mobilise the national economy, improve the standard of living and provide political stability in society while strengthening national defence, state security and law and order and raise Russia's competitiveness and international prestige in the world.
