Putin says the U.S. is the most important risk to his international maritime objectives.

President Vladimir Putin has introduced his deliberate growth of Russia’s naval energy, singling out the US as the most important impediment.

Putin signed a brand new naval doctrine on Sunday, accusing Washington of attempting to dominate the world’s oceans.

The 55-page doc states that NATO’s actions threaten Moscow’s borders and particulars a plan to strengthen Russia’s geopolitical place. In a speech to mark Navy Day, Putin didn’t immediately point out the battle in Ukraine.

As a substitute he thanked navy personnel and pledged to defend Russian pursuits within the Black and Azov Seas.

How will this be seen in Washington?
