The UN continues to study the Russian application for the shelf in the Arctic

30
The UN Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf specified in the Russian application for the Arctic continues; it’s too early to talk about the completion of work, RIA News message source.




In 2015, the Russian Federation submitted to the UN a revised application for expanding the boundaries of its continental shelf in the Arctic through the accession of the Lomonosov submarine ridge, stretching in the direction of the North Pole, and other formations. The next session of the application review commission will be held in New York from January 29 to March 16.

At this session, work on the consideration of the application will be continued; it is still premature to talk about its completion. As it was announced initially, this work may take several years.
said a source to the agency.

According to him, the head of the Ministry of Natural Resources of the Russian Federation Sergey Donskoy is not going to the upcoming session of the UN Commission.

Recall that in 2001, Russia announced its claims for a hydrocarbon-rich shelf area, including the Lomonosov Ridge and the Mendeleev Ridge, but its application was rejected due to a lack of geological information.

New expeditions to the Arctic, geological and geophysical studies in the Arctic Ocean to study the geological nature of the Mendeleev Ridge and the Lomonosov Ridge and bathymetric survey took more than 10 years.

Earlier it was reported that the projected hydrocarbon resources of the considered areas - 4,9 billion tons of standard fuel.

      The UN, as we all know, has become an American litter, and will now be delayed with a positive decision for many years, for which members of the commission will receive a lot of green papers from Uncle Sam.

        The UN is waiting for the application from Ukraine to be received. When they dug the Black Sea, they poured soil into the Arctic Ocean. And so the Lomonosov Ridge was formed.

          And the one who poured little was hit with a shovel in the nose, the name coincided with the name of the discoverer.

      I agree. I think it will be so. To acknowledge the obvious to the commission is to commit suicide. A bunch of black raped maids will pop up right away wassat

            To get, to sell. here, after all, is a direct dependence for us. Not all domestic needs are imprisoned. They will spoil excessively ... here the minefields would not be in the way, the fairways / routes can be taken under protection, but beware from all sides, this is difficult and VERY expensive!

              I believe that existing bases and those planned to be reanimated will be sufficient for a forceful presence. and yes, of course, in the conditions of the cold, while the cold war, it will be advisable against us to take into account everything that you listed.

      The dog barks, and the caravan goes on. We continue to develop, treat the Arctic as our territory, and let them think further. In the Arctic, the conditions are harsh, without proper preparation, which, of course, only Russia has, can wipe with ice, and polar bears ...

      so ours are in no hurry and getting ready - the protection and development of the Arctic becomes a priority. Now "tourist" routes are just laid and "camp sites" are being built repeat Dual-use icebreaker kayaks are being launched winked

        Under the ice, everything is much more complicated !!! You won’t find it from above, unless you drill holes and put “fishermen” on each one !!!
        No wonder they so fiercely wanted to ditch our northern "under-ice" forces !!! For they were scared and are now !!!

    I don’t understand, I open Yandex Zen and there is news for me
    "APU fighters opened fire on enemy military vehicles after another attack by enemy artillery. As it later turned out, they knocked out a car with the Russian military.
    In the area of ​​Gorlovka, despite the proclaimed truce, the separatists continue to randomly use artillery. This evening, January 23, TSN reported.

    Reportedly, after another enemy attack, fighters of the battalion of Donbass-Ukraine noticed a truck and definitely worked on it.

    “Three trucks drove out of my career. It is clear that the military. Ours are not on the other side - they opened fire, burned one car with ammunition,” a Donbass soldier with the call sign “Aver” said.

    Then intelligence reported that it was a car with the Russian military.
    I don’t understand something, it’s like I’m in the Russian Federation that it’s quite a cookie?

    So they refuse, don’t go to the grandmother. About 5 years, brains will be roasted and under the base of some sort of heresy they will refuse, well, or they will reject the application again

    Tighten as they can and will red tape on. Then they will find some flaws in the geological nature and bathymetric survey and culturally will ask for clarification. When there is no desire (especially in relation to Russia) to accept what is objectively and documented proved it will not be accepted.

    Somalia, Mali and so on. Moldova is not involved in the discussion? Also, after all, the Arctic Powers, because how to eat hunting. And in general, where is Ukraine? These generally dug out the Arctic Ocean. To send fools to hell, guns to icebreakers, and if someone is dissatisfied, we can also give him Kathmandu in the face. Sannikov and Papanin with Schmidt will not mind.

    Yes, what other applications?
    The UN includes countries that have limited territories. In general, the land is divided, except for Antarctica. Remained dry under water. Which is neither to the countries, nor to the nations in any way.
    Here, I'm sorry who scored the first peg. Despite the fact that the knife in the boot and the shotgun with canister are loaded, otherwise there are enough gopniks.
    Norgi, by the way, still for their chaos, which they committed in the North, taking advantage of our muddy at the beginning of the last century, did not answer according to concepts.
    In advance to claims on the verb.
    Guilty, I will correct and atone!
    But I think that so far these gopniks will not understand otherwise.
    Although there is an option. Kick it up. what
    For some reason, after such procedures, they begin to understand a normal language, even without ligaments from the Russian command. request

    The flag at the bottom is already standing. The Arctic group is being recreated, recreated, military equipment is being developed and is already joining the troops, so do not care about the UN.
    There China also considers itself an Arctic power, so the debate about who belongs to whom will be very hot, and negotiations are the hardest

        And what does Grudinin have to do with it? Such a normal phrase. "Three fat men" in power are eating plenty, but always someone is to blame, Ukraine, State Department, Maybe these people in power do nothing. That the Olympics, that the UN, others are always to blame.
