Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told a news briefing on Wednesday that the United States’ new military budget reaffirms Washington’s policy of world domination with reliance on military force.


"The bill on 2019 national defense spending caps the US President [Donald Trump] signed into law in fact reaffirms the policy of building up Washington’s dominating role in the world scene from the position of strength," she said, TASS reported.

Such a considerable increase in the US military budget will cause a negative impact on international security.

"The unprecedented inflation of the military budget to $716 billion, a record-high for the past fifteen years, is causing a destructive effect on the existing system of international security," Zakharova said.

In particular, she pointed out that the budget provided for funding projects in accordance with anti-Russian and anti-Chinese guidelines identified in the national security and national defense strategies and the US Nuclear Posture Review.

Zakharova added that such measures by Washington are an obstacle to putting Russian-US relations on the constructive track and push them into a dead end.
