Russia and the United States have developed shipping routes in the Arctic

24
Russian and American specialists jointly developed and proposed to the International Maritime Organization a system of routes in the Bering Strait and the Bering Sea due to the increase in shipping there, reports RIA News.




In response to an increase in ship traffic in the Arctic, the United States and the Russian Federation proposed a system of bilateral routes for ships in the Bering Strait and the Bering Sea,
said in a statement to the US Coast Guard.

It is reported that "the countries jointly developed and submitted to the International Maritime Organization a proposal to create six bilateral routes and six areas of increased navigation caution."

The routes pass along the coast of Chukotka and Alaska, in Russian and American territorial waters.

According to the head of the US Coast Guard division, Mike Sollosi, the agreed paths will allow ships to “avoid numerous shoals, reefs and islands, as well as reduce the possibility of sea injuries and environmental disasters.”

At the same time, the Coast Guard stressed that the proposed routes for all local and international ship trips will be voluntary.

    Well, we can walk in the Arctic relatively freely, and almost at any time of the year, but mattresses with their icebreaking fleet, in the size (if I'm not mistaken) of 2 icebreakers are not the first freshness ... well, I don’t know.

      So our icebreakers will be the ones to build roads for them. “Bilateral routes for ships in the Bering Strait and the Bering Sea,”Why only let them go there at all, even on a non-fee basis?

        And it’s like with a gas pipe ... we want to give gas, we want to, shut off the vent. This is the same situevina. We want, lay, but do not want, put on it.

          International trade - it is INTERNATIONAL. If we want to send our merchant ships to Alaska, then we need to let the Americans come to us.
          I am glad that at least something in Russian-American relations is working fine

            Then at the same time we would agree and build a bridge between Chukotka and Alaska, but at the expense of those who use the services of our icebreakers))

              Is it so that it would be easier for their marines to run across to our shore without soaking their legs? laughingNo, thanks, I don’t need a bridge there. wink

        Icebreakers, yes to health! You have to pay for everything, but there are no superfluous funds.

        The cross-sectional area of ​​the Bering Strait is 3,4 km2, and the depth is only 60 m.
        In a word, they put things in order for ships to pass in border zones. This is normal.

        Who to let? US to let the Bering Strait? wassat wassat Patriots have already read their own comments .. wassat
        Thank you to our contractors for agreeing, this means that this way has gained international status ... and ships passing the Bering Strait (which are the waters of the Russian Federation and the USA) can move in both directions ... but the USA could refuse .. and would have to huddle on our ter. waters in this neck .... it would not add security ... and since there is little security, then there are fewer customers ..

      Their lag on icebreakers by a dozen years, at least, and the printing press is not an assistant here. Eh, the Bering Strait would be expanded, and so you have to agree with these bastards. SevMorPut is the future of shipping, it is not for nothing that the snake ball began to move, the grandmothers sniffed.

        They’ve been ten years behind the icebreakers,

        Our 40 icebreakers (and how many more are under construction), against two of them? There is a delay of 30 years, if not more.

          But you didn’t ask yourself why the USA needs 40 icebreakers? They do not have SMP. They supply Alaska without icebreakers.

        - There is no need to keep the United States for fools. Their technical base is excellent - if necessary, they will do it! Yes, and it will be beneficial for us to work in the American zone. There is no need to bullish, mutual benefits are desirable.

          We must save money for the construction of icebreakers. We must pay for the pilotage of vessels.

          So that's why he wrote "ten years." We can’t click with a beak only, and everything will be gut. And about the duriks - their submarine was sawn in the 15th? Fact

    As for the interaction between the coast guard of Russia and the United States. PSKR "Danube" of the project 97p. The main task is to drive the same icebreakers of the USA and Canada, which "accidentally" appear at the edge of Russian ice, as well as all other tasks that are solved by the PSKRs.

      Maybe ... or maybe not. Mattresses all lick on a piece of the Arctic shelf. And there are more hydrocarbons than in Iraq. Recall what they did to Iraq?

    ...... So, it became known that icebreakers began to be on duty in Russian ports of the northern seas, which provide the conditions for escorting transport vessels in winter conditions.

    However, a recent incident was the first ever transfer of a transport vessel along the NSR without icebreaker escort in winter conditions. So, it became known that the gas tanker Eduard Toll made a winter crossing along the Northern Sea Route without icebreaking support. The foreign ship entered the Bering Sea on December 24, 2017 and after 17 days reached the waters of the Gulf of Ob, arriving at the port of Sabetta.

    Thus, one can observe how highly foreign companies have already assessed the benefits of using the Northern Sea Route of the Russian Federation. The NSR is beneficial for the speedy delivery of goods by reducing the length of the route between Asia and the EU. At the same time, transportation costs are also reduced, which contributes to an increase in profits, for which foreigners are now ready to escort their vessels along the advantageous route of the Russian Federation even in extreme winter conditions at the NSR ....
