US announced plans to build up military presence in the Arctic

45

The United States no longer conceals its plans for the Arctic; in the coming years, Washington intends to increase not only military, but also commercial activity in this region with the involvement of other NATO countries.

NATO's Supreme Commander in Europe Tod Walters said NATO has plans to increase its military presence in the Arctic. First of all, the alliance, or rather the United States, wants to ensure "safe navigation" in international waters. Judging by the latest statements, the US and NATO consider the Northern Sea Route to be these "international waters".



According to the American general, Russia and China allegedly violate the international rules of free navigation, besides, Russia is "militarizing the Arctic." The same opinion is shared by the Pentagon, where they directly declare that the Arctic is a region where the United States is fighting for resources with Russia. Given that the melting ice is freeing more and more water space, Washington predicts that this struggle will intensify.

Without delay, the Pentagon has already established a regional center for Arctic security research, which will study the problems associated with the Arctic region. The report says the center will become a new place "for cooperation and promotion of common interests for the sake of a peaceful and prosperous Arctic."

The Russian Ministry of Defense notes the increased activity of the United States and NATO in the Arctic near the Russian borders. As stated in the General Staff, Russia is ready to protect its interests in the region.

      The Pentagon, where they directly state that the Arctic is a region where the United States is fighting with Russia for resources.

      Does our government understand that this struggle is being waged with us? Or do they still consider the United States a partner?

                  "The United States wants to ensure" safe navigation "in international waters. Judging by the latest statements, the US and NATO consider the Northern Sea Route to be these" international waters. "

                  Nothing unusual! Americans: "Do you have something? We are coming to you to establish peace and democracy!"

      No one prohibits high-latitude voyages. But rescue will cost a pretty penny. Wait until the American boat is crushed by the ice, the crew will be removed from the ice floe. US assurances for their people. They do not know that there is ice in the north. The sea is always warm from the window. .Yes, even through the North Pole, let him walk, and fork out along the NSR to the Russian budget!

      merikatosnya "wants" a lot. But in fact - the Northern Sea Route, "Northern Sea Route (NSR), Northern Sea Corridor" is the shortest sea route between the European part of Russia and the Far East; the legislation of the Russian Federation is defined as "historically established national unified transport communication of Russia in the Arctic»."

      But what about Putin's statement "to the teeth"?
      Have the audacity to ignore the Russian president's warning?
      Americans have never been in the Arctic.
      Alaska and that they are illegally appropriated. And America has no other territories bordering the Arctic.
      So, that "forest-forest", although there is no forest in the Arctic either.
      Or "Along the tundra, along a wide road ...." in an erotic journey on foot ?!

      for a peaceful and prosperous Arctic

      What words did you check out, huh? You might think that now the Arctic without US protection is a region where war is raging and polar bears are eating the last seal.
      for cooperation and promotion of common interests

      And I also wonder what kind of common interests and cooperation, if neither cooperation nor the interests of Russia, as a country with the longest Arctic border, are not only not taken into account, but also subject to doubts and attacks?

      Washington intends to increase not only military, but also commercial activity in the region- everything is for rent, nothing else. Whoever can rent chagoy will be able to provide power comparable to the Russian in the Arctic.

      What's the use of declaring? It's time to give the Americans a black mark. Fucked up to the root. Not only have they surrounded Russia with bases, laboratories, "members" and "circles" of NATO; tried to climb into Central Asia and unseat Russia from the south; constantly "screw up and incite" the Japanese in the east, promising them "rivers of milk and jelly shores of the islands of the Kuril ridge "so now they wanted to play snowballs ... lol
      The next time an American boat floats up in the ice of the Arctic not far from the coast of the Russian Federation, it is necessary to "counter-buy" it there ... And to tell the Yankees that we train PB and A.
