The penetration of NATO into the Arctic is fraught with complications, according to US media


Amid increasing Russian activity in the Arctic, calls are being made louder to substantially increase NATO's presence in the region. However, NATO’s penetration here is fraught with serious complications. This opinion is expressed by the American edition of "War on the rocks".


The activation of NATO forces in the Arctic under conditions of rapidly deteriorating stability can be very dangerous

- indicates the designated American edition.

According to the author, close cooperation with the Russian Federation is necessary in this region. This requires renewed dialogue within the Russia-NATO Council.

No country dominates the Arctic. For decades, the United States and Russia have maintained [here] a delicate balance of power. But in the context of the ongoing changes, this balance of power is shaky

- notes War on the rocks.

The Russian Federation carries out large-scale defense construction on the islands, deploying military bases, radar and missiles here. The United States intends to soon deploy the F-35 to Ailson airbase, while expanding the capabilities of Alaska-based missile detection systems at the Clear Air Force facility and strengthening the grouping of ICBM interceptors at Fort Greeley.

However, the involvement of NATO in the process of strengthening defense capabilities in the region is fraught with serious complications. Firstly, this will lead to an increase in the number of countries active in the Arctic, which has always been avoided both in Washington and in Moscow. Secondly, Russia will be forced to strengthen its military position in the region.

The tooth-by-tooth principle can lead to escalation, especially in the event of an accident or accident

- indicates the publication.

In these conditions, it is necessary to intensify dialogue with the Kremlin:

The Russia-NATO Council could be a good platform for discussing security issues in the Arctic, because this is a proven, established structure [...] NATO in the Arctic should be engaged in creating, not exacerbating, the situation

- concludes the edition.

    Lord, at least the Arctic and Antarctica have not been touched! Left a couple of white, unmilitarized spots on a rainy day!

      But how not to touch ?! A new trade route and new mineral deposits! In the 21st century, it’s not the countries that are fighting, but the global trading corporations, the same ATS is primarily an attempt by the United States to redistribute the hydrocarbon market, and Gazprom’s monopoly in Europe does not suit them at all.
      Antarctica, as ice melts will be the next theater of operations

        There are no Papuans in the Arctic. To which he sailed on an aircraft carrier - and all yours! Even at the time of EBN, when we paid for geological exploration for Everton, and it was possible to carry away how many pockets fit, the Arctic remained untouched.
        Well, let them puff, build an ice-class aircraft carrier for billions per 100, and as the ice goes down - ring, our icebreakers will take tourists to the pole ...
        Everything is expensive in the Arctic, a hamburger for $ 70 has not cut the budget here, and the bun is below cost.

      The author understands that in the Arctic, the USA is hopelessly behind Russia and it will not work to catch up. Because - you need to unite to grab your piece of the pie. Typical behavior of jackals. yes The question arises: does Russia need such "cooperation"? recourse

        Headhunter hi staff members are trying to get on another's holiday and they don’t have legal rights to a large piece of the pie, but I want to. And worst of all, they think they have a right. Hence all the arguments about any cooperation, conferences ..

      Pride strangles them, and they will never understand this.

      Sly opost chokes them, not pride. They understand that they are hopelessly behind Russia, and therefore decided to hide behind a specious slogan about maintaining a balance of forces in the Arctic and force Russia to commit itself not to militarize the northern territories. The trick is that they do not have an icebreaker fleet, without which NATO penetration is very problematic. The pair of icebreakers available to the USA cannot provide for their needs, and in order to catch up with Russia by this indicator, they need from 10 to 15 years. When they catch up with the Russian Federation on this indicator, they will traditionally and unilaterally wipe off the agreements and begin to "penetrate". Over the same 10-15 years, we will thoroughly take root in this region, significantly reducing their ability to tear off part of it under our control. Let snowmen sculpt in Alaska, you can’t negotiate with them.

    I do not think that in such a “pantry” of minerals it is necessary, “cooperation”, with NATO. Let them cooperate with Ukraine. There is black earth.

    As soon as they realized that in the Arctic they were significantly inferior to Russia, they immediately started talking (so far in the media) about a dialogue with the Kremlin, they recalled the Russia-NATO Council. Or maybe it’s better to talk about NATO’s eastward expansion?

    Unfortunately, the Yankees do not think so. It seems that (in fact) oil and gas are running out, with all the consequences.
