International relations will be shaped by battles over energy resources, which may trigger military conflicts along Russian borders, a Kremlin policy paper released on Wednesday stated. The National Security Strategy paper also said that Russia will seek an equal partnership with the US, but adds that American missile defense plans were among top threats to national security. The document listed the main challenges to national security and laid out government priorities through 2020. It had been signed by President Dmitry Medvedev and was posted on the presidential Security Council's Web site. Medvedev's predecessor Vladimir Putin has previously accused the West of trying to expand its clout in the ex-Soviet nations and push Russia out of its traditional sphere of influence.
