KYIV/Ukraine in Arabic/ The deputy secretary of Russia's National Security Council Mikhail Popov told that the military infrastructure of NATO member states was getting closer to Russian borders, including via enlargement. Thereby Russia will alter its military strategy as a result of the Ukraine crisis and NATO's presence in eastern Europe.

NATO's actions were one of the key "external threats" to Russia, he said.

"NATO's planned action... is evidence of the desire of US and NATO leaders to continue their policy of aggravating tensions with Russia", Popov said.

There were no details on how the doctrine might change.

Ukrainian troops are battling pro-Russian rebels in east Ukraine.

About 2,600 people have died since fighting began in April.

Ukraine's defence minister on Monday accused Russia of launching a "great war" that could claim tens of thousands of lives - claims dismissed by Russia, which denies actively supporting the rebels.
