MOSCOW, Oct. 15 (Xinhua) -- Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree, which was published Monday on the portal of legal information, approving the fundamentals of state policy on ensuring the nuclear and radiation safety of Russia until 2025 and beyond.

The decree, signed on Saturday and effective from the date of signature, defines the policy on ensuring national security in using Russian nuclear facilities for military and civil purposes, minimizing risks of the personnel of those facilities and increasing the responsibility of institutions using nuclear energy.

The decree invalidates the previous document on nuclear security approved in 2012 and instructs the Russian government to approve a plan for the implementation of the document within three months.
