Stoltenberg: NATO will be present in the Arctic for defense

69
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the Western military bloc has accumulated contradictions with the Russian Federation on the Arctic. Generally speaking, it is difficult to name the region of the planet and the sphere of activity where the “hegemons” would have no complaints about Russia. In an interview with the publication Foreign Policy Stoltenberg announced an increase in tension in connection with the facts of the activities of Russia in the Arctic territories. The fact that Russia in the Arctic operates in the territories belonging to Russia was not commented by Stoltenberg, although loyal journalists did not touch on such a topic when talking to the NATO Secretary General.


Stoltenberg: NATO will be present in the Arctic for defense


Stoltenberg noted that there is an increase in tension, but at the same time NATO should focus on "lowering the degree of this tension."

From the material:
We are talking about the need for cooperation with Russia. We have developed such cooperation for decades. Even during the Cold War, NATO collaborated with the USSR in the Arctic. Therefore, we, of course, will be present in the Arctic region, but strictly proportionate and exclusively for defense.


At the same time, in his interview Stoltenberg once again announced the “Russian intervention in the affairs of Ukraine.”

From the interview:
We will certainly do everything to ensure that there is no such interference in the internal affairs of any NATO member.


And what should be considered the internal affairs of a military bloc that is trying to spread the use of its military “baton” to the whole world?

        They want only the USA with satellites to stay! And that’s it!
        Or what do they mean by "defense"? And, exactly, there is oil ... If you get oil, you threaten the USA!

          Who interferes, be present! Do you have icebreakers? Probably already "base" is?
          And the experience is different (landing, posting) too ??? And "proportionally" - how much will fit, in the "zone" !!!!

    Go ahead and with the song. Europeans "better" tolerate us cold. Best of all, Wehrmacht veterans can tell you about the delights of frosty Russian weather. And after all, this is not the Arctic yet.
    Man, like a rat, adapts to everything, but this takes more time. A sharp change in climate is a blow to the body. One of my colleagues worked at the UN mission in Bosnia. Of course, the mission was international. And one day two observers came to them from the unit, either from India, or from Africa. It was late fall or winter. The temperature was around + 2 / + 4 Celsius. One of these fighters soon died of hypothermia - he did not survive the climatic conditions. The second was urgently evacuated and more of these "experiments" were not carried out.

      Hi Alex soldier
      It’s all to one! Yankers will stick their weapons to everyone ... we are waiting for a startup to produce nano-ultra-heated diapers and closets, of course !!! Guess in which country this production will be organized?
      And if without jokes, they have a lot of money, other resources are not small either, they just need time to design and manufacture specialized equipment for Schaub.
      One hope, they will drift into their dear, promising research and will invent their super-duper wunderwafel do-o-olgo!
      Although they may tear at us or the same Norwegians the existing technical solutions for Arctic technology!
      In short, we will look in person ... the words of the NATO balabol are not really upcoming events!

        With technology, of course, everything is fine. Are they really going to work in the Arctic in spacesuits with heating? laughing people must be adapted to such a climate, because not technology is fighting, but people. We will look at these attempts. I am skeptical of their enthusiasm for the militarization of the Arctic, although you should not throw caps either ...

    contradictions with the Russian Federation on the Arctic have accumulated in the Western military bloc
    I wonder what other issues NATO has not accumulated contradictions with Russia. Apparently everywhere there are some contradictions, accompanied by rude assaults and open threats.
    NATO should focus on “lowering this tension”
