Britain announced surveillance of Russia's actions in the Arctic

British Deputy Minister of Defense Mark Lancaster in a letter sent to members of the House of Representatives of the British Parliament in response to an official request for Russia's actions in the Arctic region, noted that Russia had expanded its military presence in the Arctic.


Britain announced surveillance of Russia's actions in the Arctic


Responding to a parliamentary question, Lancaster said that the Russian Arctic command had significantly expanded its military presence and activity in the High North, and although Russia's actions are legitimate and comply with all the accepted conventions, the United Kingdom is closely monitoring this region. He said that at present, the activity of Russian submarines in the North Atlantic has increased, and strategic bomber exercises are being conducted. At the same time, Britain is deeply concerned about the fact that Russia may in the future cut off all navigation routes for British ships in the High North.

We remind you that at the beginning of this year, the Parliament of Great Britain attended to the state of affairs in the Arctic region. The Committee on the Defense of the House of Commons decided to work out a strategy for the actions of the United Kingdom in the Arctic against the background of the growing military positions of Russia in the region. To this end, the UK military department collects and summarizes data on the deployment of Russian weapons systems in the Arctic. Also, earlier, British experts concluded that in the future the Arctic region is more likely to be a zone of conflict between Russia and NATO.

        SUMMARY:
        Russia dares to intensify activity on its territory!
        This outrageous action should be followed by NATO, and in the future a conflict over this issue is also possible.
        Angles, they are such angels.

      If 30% of hydrocarbon reserves are concentrated in the Arctic, then the interest is clear. The West has experience in dividing countries, now it is the turn of the continents.

    Cheslovo, some morons.
    If you behave not like with the Papuans, but normally, taking into account the interests of Russia, then why do we need to block the northern routes when you can make money doing this by convoying ships. Well, if the zealous leaps up and wants to show his "exclusivity", then you will be expelled from normal partners.

      Geographically - no ... But politically (geopolitically, more precisely) then through the Canadian Arctic sector - the most direct.
      The area of ​​Arctic land is about 14 million square meters. km This territory consists of the most northern possessions of the 8 Arctic states - Russia, Canada, Greenland (an autonomous unit within Denmark), the USA, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Finland. The Russian Federation and Canada own 80% of land, the Scandinavian countries - about 16%, the USA - 4%. A third of the region is the Arctic Ocean.
      Canada - a state that is a member of the British Commonwealth as a dominion (Kingdom of the Commonwealth), whose head of state is the British queen. The Queen’s official representative in Canada is the Governor General, appointed by the Queen on the advice of the Prime Minister.

    That's right they all think. In the Arctic, now all our wealth, which the friendly liberals have not yet sold for a broken nickel, it is thawing, it will soon be very attractive, ecologists have details. And NATO will now receive a very strong scruffy scruff if it sticks its dirty smelly patch on it.
