Alwaght- Russia has dismissed US President Donald Trump’s new national security strategy as imperialist on Tuesday.

According to the Russian presidential spokesman, the new US National Security Strategy is a rather long document, which needs to be thoroughly assessed, "and the relevant agencies will do it." "The wordings [used in the strategy] are rather impressive, they should be analyzed," Peskov concluded.
"As for the new US national security strategy, the document is rather large and needs to be studied thoroughly, which will be done by all relevant agencies in order to think it through," Peskov said.

In addition, the document claims that "China and Russia are developing advanced weapons and capabilities that could threaten US critical infrastructure and command center.
