US Concerned about Russia's Military Presence in the Arctic

Washington began a review of its policy in the Arctic, given that Russia significantly increased its military presence in the region. This was stated by a senior official of the US State Department.


Speaking at a State Department briefing on Thursday, the American diplomat said that the US’s actions in the Arctic, in particular, the strengthening of its military presence, are of concern to the United States. According to him, Washington is particularly concerned about Russian military bases, military airfields "restored in the region" and deep-sea ports.

(...) we are concerned about the construction by Russia of military facilities in the Arctic. The Russian presence has grown significantly in recent years, the Arctic command has been created, airfields and other infrastructure, deep-sea ports, new military bases along the coast, efforts to deploy air defense and missile systems, early warning radars have been restored

- he said.

The State Department official explained that Washington is "in the process of" reviewing US policy on the Arctic region. At the same time, he acknowledged that Russia is in the Arctic "legally", and on some issues, US-Russian cooperation is "going well." As an example, the official cited a number of environmental protection programs.

In turn, Moscow previously stated repeatedly that the military activity of NATO countries, especially those not related to this region, leads to increased tension and leads to destabilization. Recently, the activity of the alliance in the Arctic has increased significantly.

      Okay, but we are concerned about the existence of the Phashington on the planet, in general!
      So whose concern should be stronger?

    In such cases, the main thing is not to comb.

    The impudence and appetite of the Americans is growing exponentially ... The Russian Arctic has always been our patrimony ... and the Americans are already shamelessly creeping into our waters ... someday they will have to be put in place ... well, at least the Russian icebreaking fleet is in combat-ready condition.

    Well, they still would not have been worried. The easiest way to get them through the North Pole. And the hydrocarbon reserves there are significant.

    How much nonsense they began to write in the media is not comprehensible to the mind. They did the right thing in the USSR that they didn’t close all this husk to the media.

    It's too late to drink Borjomi when the kidneys have fallen off. With the Arctic in the same position as with hypersonic weapons - catch up and catch up. Well, at least for now they admit that Russia is in the Arctic "on legal grounds."

    Not well. When the border went from the Kola and Chukchi Peninsulas to the North Pole, no one was worried. And then on you, combed. Russia is the successor of the Republic of Ingushetia and the USSR, and Shoigu is the chairman of the Russian Geographical Society. Ugh on you. Ugh again

    I don’t understand something, probably, what has to do with the military bases on Russian soil and the State Department? Do they have problems with geography? Well, looking at the pearls of "theirs" the day before yesterday, a lot becomes clear ... Fighters for democracy, "you panic" ...
