Decree 216/2019 approving the Energy Security Doctrine

legislation type Executive
Decree
Passed in 2019
The Doctrine is a strategic planning document in the field of ensuring the national security of the Russian Federation. It identifies in art. 9 "the intensification of international efforts to implement climate policy and accelerate the transition to a "green economy"" as a foreign policy challenge to energy security. 

In art. 10, it states that the Russian Federation supports international efforts aimed at combating climate change and is ready to cooperate in this area with all states. It further adds that "the Russian Federation takes part in resolving issues of international climate policy to the extent that this policy meets its national interests related to improving the quality of life of citizens, protecting the environment and rational use of natural resources. At the same time, Russia considers it unacceptable to consider issues of climate change and environmental protection from a biased point of view, infringe on the interests of energy producing states and deliberately ignore such aspects of sustainable development as ensuring universal access to energy and developing clean hydrocarbon energy technologies."
