Publication: Monitor Volume: 3 Issue: 173
In an article published by a Russian border forces journal, Security Council secretary Ivan Rybkin states that the most serious threats to Russia’s security over the near and middle term will come not from external military forces, but from Russia’s internal economic, social, ecological, and spiritual problems. Rybkin did, nevertheless, point to the danger of local conflicts breaking out along Russia’s borders, as well as to a potential threat that, in his view, is posed by NATO’s enlargement.
