The Putin’s return to the Russian presidency has raised a maximum international attention,due to the antecedents of the confrontation with the West during his previous second term (2004‐2008), the nationalist rhetoric used during the electoral campaign, and the opposition protests for the supposed irregularities committed both in those last elections and in the legislatives of December 2011. This Document analyses which can be the main future characteristics of the Russian security policy, based on the program that Putin detailed for the elections, and the world security environment in which these programmatic ideas must be developed.
