Denmark will triple spending on defense of the Arctic against the backdrop of the “Russian threat”

Denmark expressed its readiness to triple military spending on military programs in the Arctic region amid the “Russian threat” and the growing split between the United States on the one hand and Russia and China on the other, which could lead to a military conflict in the Arctic.


Denmark increases funding for Arctic programs from the defense budget over a three-year period by 1,5 billion Danish kroner (220 million dollars), which is three times more than previously planned. According to Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, these funds will be used to strengthen the country's defensive capabilities in the Arctic region against the backdrop of an "increasing Russian threat."

The bulk of the allocated funds will be used to monitor airspace and organize tracking of Russian submarines near Greenland.

Earlier it was reported that US President Donald Trump criticized Denmark for not fulfilling its obligations to allocate 2% of GDP for defense within NATO. In this regard, Copenhagen said that the increase in the cost of operations in the Arctic region in the defense budget of Denmark was a demonstration that Copenhagen is keeping its promises.

Earlier in Copenhagen, Moscow was accused of conducting active military activities in the Arctic, which significantly "aggravates the situation."

Recall that in the winter of 2014, Denmark applied to the UN with a statement that it claims to be on the seabed around the North Pole with an area twenty times the size of the kingdom itself.

      Everywhere there is an increase in financing of the military budget against the backdrop of the Russian threat .. Or maybe they just pay this money to Russia, let's say they planned to increase the budget three times .. so give 1/3 of this amount to Russia .. and Russia will vow not to attack laughing
      And Russia is good and the links are safe .. wassat

        No, it doesn’t work for Denmark to be as arrogant as the USA. Although they are trying.
        The United States would report that some foreign ships with the Russian flag floated on its territory and would impose sanctions.

      This is a common raider rule by a pirate state - i.e. USA! Namely.

      USA: Do you want Denmark to "sell" - ie. to give - to us their property - Greenland - at all? Then pay us - the USA - forever in parts compensation in the form of a tax for the "roof" on your property.
      Now it is 2%, and then there will be 4%, etc.

      And when the "apostate" cannot pay, then as a debt for the "taxes" not paid by Denmark to the NATO / Pentagon pocket, the US will simply take away their territorial property from the Greenlanders / Donetsk residents. They'll take Greenland.
      In world practice, everything goes to this.

      It’s interesting, but for what bad boom in Denmark, the Arctic territory should be larger than Denmark itself? I understand that when, during the construction of the first railway, Peter I (sort of) said: "On its wider," or Catherine II, spreading her fan, said: "Do where my fan pointed." Who are they?

    against the backdrop of the “Russian threat”

    Evil is not enough, well, who is threatening you? They got the same thing. Teachings everywhere, arms races, everywhere intervening. They shoot around the globe and do you think all this does not affect the climate? Nearby is a military unit, they shoot at night and in the afternoon, shoot and explode, it seems that there is a war nearby. Even before 2014 it was quiet, but now it’s horror and this is in Germany. The threat is not from Russia, but from yourself. They say the ecology is bad from cars, but what doesn’t they shoot does it affect the ecology?

      Calm down. The "peaceful" stage of life in our civilization seems to be ending, the whole world has begun to prepare for the next redistribution of everything and everyone. The "Russian threat" is just an excuse to hide such preparations.

    Well, I don't understand: all this "threat from Russia" was invented for what? To cut the military budget? Or is an order given from the United States to buy weapons from them in increased volumes, while their citizens are soaring brains? Or are they already so zombified that they see the Russian threat everywhere?

    They accuse, as a rule, of violating something. And we are there by law. A third of the Arctic is our territory and a recognized maritime exclusive economic zone, in general.
    Let them take a magnifying glass and compare on the map Denmark itself and our entire Arctic.
