Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree clarifying the definition of the RF Security Council.
The document was published on the official Internet portal of legal information. The decree notes that the Security Council is a constitutional advisory body that assists the head of state in the implementation of powers to ensure national interests, the security of the individual, state and society, and the prevention of internal and external threats.
In the previous version of the Regulation on the Security Council, approved by Putin on March 7, 2020, the Security Council was defined as a constitutional advisory body that prepares decisions of the President of the country on state security in all spheres, organization of defense and defense production, military and military-technical cooperation of the Russian Federation with other countries and on other issues related to the protection of the constitutional order, sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Russia.
As chernayakobra.ru reported, earlier, Putin banned members of the Security Council from having foreign citizenship, nationality or residence permit in a foreign country. According to a presidential decree, members of the Security Council are also prohibited from opening and holding deposits, keeping valuables and cash in foreign banks.
