The cold ice of the Arctic became the object of "hot interest" in Russia and the USA

43

Recently, the Arctic is beginning to interest many countries of the world. But it causes the greatest interest in Russia and the USA.


This is written by the Chinese publication Zhongguo Junwang. As if China, this region is not of "hot interest".

Journalists of the publication emphasize that control over the Arctic zone provides not only access to its rich resources, but also provides serious geopolitical advantages.

Russia has the largest territory in the world adjacent to the North Pole. Therefore, she began active development of the Arctic in the era of the Russian Empire. The United States has begun to actively claim this region recently. More and more Americans began to conduct military maneuvers in the Arctic. The most memorable IceX-2020 exercises, during which the Toledo submarine sailed, breaking ice. Actually, if for the US Navy this is considered a major achievement, then in Russia any nuclear submarine of the North or the Pacific is capable of this. fleet.

The increased attention of the military to the North Pole region is due to the fact that it is the center where Europe, Asia and North America converge. From here, one can keep almost the entire Northern Hemisphere of the Earth at gunpoint.

In addition, the Arctic zone is rich in hydrocarbon deposits. Since there will be a shortage of the planet in the future, the Arctic’s oil and gas resources could mitigate this crisis. Therefore, a country that develops this region will receive significant benefits.

    On the territory of Russia, the states have nothing to do from the word “Absolutely”, the States are not the center of the world and their desires do not quite fit them, I want to, as we say, do it and it will be gut, bend your back, kneel, etc.
    The USA, as the center of the infection, has already dismissed its tentacles, whether you understand such a business only and not something personal!

      that’s because I didn’t know that the states were already on the territory of Russia to Matushka .... where can I look for reptiles ..... I’ve already cleaned my little thing with optics and am ready to clean up the infection !!

          In Tiksi gardens are only for reindeer moss. Potatoes with carrots do not grow not only at night, but even on a polar day.

    during which the Toledo submarine sailed breaking ice
    This is when they again sawed the ice, as usual? It would be necessary to fit our boat ... Already traditionally we would cram mattresses with masks wherever, and which holes were not enough - you can push the ventilator. As humanitarian aid. At the same time, buoyancy in minke whales will increase

    What nonsense - where does the thesis of "serious achievement" come from?
    The authors themselves come up with such stupid articles.
    Then they themselves will then believe.
    Then they begin to think of a jam.

    A Nuclear Submarine cannot get stuck in the ice, after surfacing.
    The shape of the contours of the hulls of modern submarines will not.
    There have not yet been such cases in history.

    Americans, British, French, Russians - for decades (since the end of the 50s) have been floating in the ice of the Arctic Ocean.
    70 years already.

    ICEX exercises are testing of submarine combat operations under the ice.
    In ICEX-2003, the Connecticut nuclear submarine test-fired, under various conditions, fired two dozen torpedoes at all possible types of targets and under various conditions.


    And no one has any problems.

    Problems only when underwater obstacles crash under the ice.
    In history, and such cases have been

    Intersect look at things: putting the interests of the States and Russia on one board. The thesis about the hot interests of Russia and the United States in the Gulf of Mexico would have looked exactly the same - but everyone would have immediately asked the question: “what did Russia forget there (although, if you understand it well, the States have nothing special to do there), And for some reason about The Arctic and the States are all considered normal, and no one had a question: what the hell were the States forgotten there - in the Russian (geographically and historically for over a thousand years) Arctic. Probably, it's time to rebuild the way of thinking,

      Really, it's time.
      After all, there are laws by which we all live.
      Good or bad, like or dislike.
      But we must live on them.
      This is the legal basis of the state.

      There are also legal international laws - the basics.

      So read - The legal regime of the Arctic.
      You will probably be very interested ... Especially about the participants.

        In fact, it’s enough to try to rely on the priority of Russian laws and look at the map of the USSR and remember who the receiver is. And when reading international legal laws, one should keep in mind the scientific reports about all kinds of Arctic shelves and underwater ridges, in the light of which, even with the current attitude of some to international law, their claims to future ownership are unlikely to be justified.

          I understand that you again signed in your ignorance.
          Why in conversations about the Arctic look at the map of the USSR and remember the receivers?
          What's the point of this?

          But there is a point in your head. So your head is full of secret knowledge.

          Why Danes, Canadians, Norwegians - should consider the priority of Russian laws?
          Norwegians and Danes were in the Arctic Ocean as often as Russian Pomors.
          Therefore, there are no historical reasons in our right to the entire ocean. These are just realities.
          And not the hotel.

            Well, right, the whole ocean - I was already shy. I had in mind the Arctic, just the Russian sector, since the rest of the sectors are not of interest, and according to international laws on the adjacent shelf, the Russian sector should be Russian, and by no means international. And you don’t need to interfere with secret knowledge, otherwise I’ll flush myself - I’ll become a witch.

        So let them measure out a segment proportional to the Arctic coast of Alaska! Who is against? So no, they are lifting their foot on the Northern Sea Route! Well, if so, then we will close 12 miles of the water guide and let them walk on pack ice ... if they don’t have an Arctic Agreement, and they want to swim (and not go!) According to the shipping rules, declaring ice free mn water area!
        However, they will not get a 200 mile economic zone! Nothing shines on them here even under the law of the sea. And Russia is not going to bend under the Yankees, judging by the growth of the Arctic infrastructure and equipment in all respects of the SA-TVD.

    The Arctic zone is rich in hydrocarbon deposits. Since in the future the planet expects their shortage
    In the 80s of the last century, they blew our ears that in thirty years, oil and gas would end. Almost forty have passed, and what do we see? Oil and gas even pour in, and so prices generally fell below the plinth. I am not saying that the reserves are endless, you just need to make the right forecasts, and not "scare" the average person with different "apocalyptic scenarios."

    The most memorable exercise is IceX-2020, during which the Toledo submarine sailed, breaking the ice.
    And before, 3 pieces were climbed out from under the ice ...
    ... in the United States and Great Britain, these exercises, in which three nuclear-powered ships took part, were American Hartford (SSN-768) type Los Angeles and Connecticut (SSN-22) type Sivulf, and also the British Trenchant (S-91) of the Trafalgar type, were also accompanied by numerous publications and media reports up to a wide demonstration of torpedo fire from American submarines, which were severely censored in previous years. A report by CNN special correspondent Jim Sutto from the Hartford submarine came out with a biting and aggressive headline: "The nuclear submarine challenges Russia in the Arctic."
    So, the author did not surprise even once!
