Arctic: another fault line

53



The aggravation of relations between Russia and Western countries is caused not only by the crisis in Ukraine. There are many “earthquake-prone zones” where the interests of Moscow and Washington collide, and where an open confrontation between two worlds can begin at any time. One of such “warming up points” is the Arctic rich in natural resources. The underlying struggle for the mastery of this region has already unfolded: the states, between which the Arctic Ocean shelf is divided, are trying to take control of other waters. Russia is involved in this confrontation: it rightfully owns a huge area of ​​the shelf, and it must be protected from the attacks of its neighbors.

Arctic opens its reserves

Melting ice in the waters of the Arctic Ocean exposed the innumerable riches of the Arctic. First of all, we are talking about oil and gas reserves: thanks to the gradual retreat of the ice line, mining companies have the opportunity to develop fields without using expensive technologies. This will reduce the cost of Arctic oil and gas and lead to an increase in profits from the sale of these resources.

In addition, thanks to the melting of glaciers, new sea routes appeared. This means that geologists and oil workers have gained access to previously unexplored areas of the ocean, where, according to expert estimates, even more mineral deposits can be found. Thus, new hydrocarbon fields have recently been discovered in the Kara and Pechora seas belonging to Russia. It turns out that the Russian wealth beyond the Arctic Circle multiplies by itself, it remains only to reach out and take. And it will be easy to do, because domestic enterprises have extensive experience in building infrastructure from scratch in regions with unfavorable climate.

The Arctic contains about 15% of the estimated global volume of unexplored oil and 30% of unexplored gas reserves. Five countries have the right to manage these resources - Russia, Canada, USA, Norway and Denmark. Countries in the Arctic region can legally be engaged in mining for the 200-mile maritime zone extending along their territorial waters.

Over the past few years, the Arctic states have been able to develop rules on the exploitation of the resources of the Arctic Ocean. The Arctic Council was established to address issues related to the development of gas and oil deposits outside the Arctic Circle. To avoid conflicts, all countries in the region have agreed to work closely together.

However, the diplomatic tools developed in the past years, are beginning to give the first failures. In conditions when the shortage of resources in the world makes itself felt, the temptation to take over the untold wealth of the Arctic is growing. In addition, with the melting of ice, gas and oil are becoming more accessible, as if luring to themselves all sorts of fans to profit from Darmsmith.

Attempts to grab a bigger piece will inevitably lead to the start of an arms race beyond the Arctic Circle. There will be a militarization of the region: the United States, together with its allies, is guaranteed to try to push Russia out of the Arctic back into its special economic zone, using the methods of diplomatic and military pressure.

The melting of the Arctic ice and the emergence of new sea routes allows you to quickly move the fleet to the Arctic. Of course, in winter, the waters of the Arctic Ocean are still unsuitable for navigation, but in summer, the possibilities for maneuvering increase. Global warming is doing its job.

Literally cold war

The press center of the US Navy declares that they are ready to increase the American presence beyond the Arctic Circle. Soldiers and officers are planned to be sent to the region for military service in the cold Arctic. But the United States has no enemies in the Arctic. Why keep the army in the tundra, where there is no threat? The answer is obvious: America does not want to defend itself, but to attack. And the US military, accustomed to the northern climate, in the future can be used in any of the regions located above the Arctic Circle. At the same time, the characteristics of vessels used in the waters of the Arctic Ocean are improved.

Washington considers itself to be the leading military-political force in the Arctic. His goal is to establish his own order in the region, which, by the way, goes against Russian interests. The United States is not alone: ​​almost all members of the Arctic Council, with the exception of Russia, are on their side. Norway, Denmark and Canada support the expansionist policy of the United States, and are even ready to join the American adventure.

For example, this year Norway, together with other NATO countries, organized and conducted the Cold Response military exercise. Those countries that are not members of the North Atlantic Alliance, namely Sweden and Switzerland, took part in the exercise. Participants in military maneuvers practiced operations under extreme conditions of the Arctic. Norway’s NATO partner, Canada, also conducted exercises, but not international, but independent. And the exercises took place in winter, that is, at a time when the North is the least hospitable. The maneuvers were attended by thousands of Canadian 4 military personnel.

Russia is ready for adequate action in response to the reinforcement of militaristic rhetoric by the states of the North Atlantic Alliance. So, in March, immediately after the end of military exercises in Canada, four Russian strategic bomber appeared in the sky of the Arctic. You can be sure that this hint, understandable to the Canadian military, did not go unnoticed, and in Ottawa will do everything possible to avoid confrontation with Moscow. At least in the near future: it is impossible to exclude that Canada will take hostile actions against Russia as soon as it receives the go-ahead from the United States.

Russia, in turn, is counting on the prudence of the countries participating in the Arctic Council and urges them to peacefully resolve any conflicts one way or another connected with the division of the shelf and water area of ​​the Arctic Ocean. Indeed, according to experts, the disunity of the northern states will prevent them from developing the region’s natural wealth: the Arctic climate is too inhospitable. The exchange of technologies and cooperation in various sectors of the economy will allow the countries of the Arctic Council to achieve the conquest of endless northern spaces.

Fortunately, except for Russia, this is understood in Europe. Norway and Denmark, unlike the USA and Canada, are more inclined to search for compromises with Moscow, and are ready to make concessions on some controversial issues. Norway is an important partner of Russia, and will suffer greatly if it enters into an arms race.

Especially dangerous for Norway is open conflict with Russia. The fact is that the Norwegian oil and gas platforms off the northern coast of the Scandinavian Peninsula are practically unprotected and very vulnerable. It will not be difficult to disable them, causing serious damage to the energy industry in Norway. At the same time, we must remember that the countries of Western Europe are buying Norwegian gas, and they will not be satisfied with the military adventurous Norwegian authorities.

As for Denmark, it has no contradictions with Russia, but Copenhagen is acting under pressure from its NATO allies, including the restless United States. And over time, Denmark may lose a place in the Arctic Council altogether: Greenland seeks independence, and the Danes can do nothing about it.

However, in the capitals of all northern countries they understand: it is necessary to unite for the sake of cooperation in the Arctic. Many are not ready for confrontation, although they are wary of their neighbors. At the same time, unity in each country of the Arctic Council is understood in its own way: for some it is ensuring equality and freedom of action, and for someone it is a frank dictation in relation to partners. If the arms race in the Arctic Circle begins, it will be triggered solely by the US desire to fundamentally suppress any attempts at a fair division of resources. And Russia should not lose this war: if it demonstrates the strength and readiness to defend its position using any means, then it will have political partners even in the harsh Arctic.

      They do not have a flag in their hands, but horseradish on the snout must be given! The fact that the first carried out the landing in the Arctic was very good, but in no case should we stop! It is necessary to develop plans for constant exercises, if not, for the combat arms deployed in the Arctic. It is imperative to strengthen the northern fleet with new ships, apl, aviation both to protect the Northern Sea Route and to support military bases and troops. To actively develop the Northern Sea Route as a close channel for transporting goods from Asia to Europe, using its own commercial fleet. I wrote this in brief.

    And the American military,accustomed to the northern climate, in the future can be used in any of the regions located beyond the Arctic Circle

    Well, well, Abamkins do not grow in geybritany, however:
    At Norway’s northernmost military base in the town of Porsanger in the Finnmark region, the British Marines refused to perform combat training missions due to low air temperature. Her Majesty's subjects said that they could not train in conditions where the temperature drops to minus twenty degrees.
    The base commander of the Norwegian base, Lieutenant Colonel Trond Thomassen, justifying the British soldiers, explained that they have a special attitude to health and safety. They sit in the barracks and flatly refuse to undergo any kind of professional training whenever the thermometer drops below eight degrees.
    Complicating the situation is the fact that in such a cold, soldiers cannot use diapers that are given to them during long trainings because of the impossibility of putting toilet stalls in forests, in the mountains, and on other rough terrain. Once the urine cools down, the genitals begin to freeze, and in two soldiers the genitals literally froze to the inside of the disposable diaper. The British soldiers were not able to pour into the snowdrift, as ethnic Norwegians still do, the young generation lost these skills
    Glorious warriors mother-mate ...
    What part of the body, instead of the one they wanted to offer, everyone guessed, however, in the ... shit, these soldiers have no equal

    Russia does not claim anyone's share in the Arctic !! The USSR’s heritage within its borders of the polar possessions is enough for her, and she will fight for this section and defend her LEGAL interests there! It is enough to recall that during the Soviet Union no one opened their mouth out of them and made their complaints !! You’ve bloomed lately !!

      But what about the shelf (or rather part of it) of the Barents Sea, given to Norway? And what about the shelf of the Chukchi Sea, given to the United States? And what about Russia's numerous territorial concessions to China? (Including the Damansky Island on the Amur, drenched in the blood of a soldier?) After all, after the collapse of the USSR, all this was profiled. I'm not talking about other republics of the former USSR at all, the darkness is complete ... Only since 2014, maybe after the annexation of Crimea, the GDP will change the course of Russia by 180 degrees, and denounce these "mutually beneficial" agreements. I think that on the example of Ukraine, the top power in Russia finally realized that only a STRONG state will be reckoned with in the West, and that you need to feed your army if you don't want to feed someone else's.

    Information from http://www.edu.severodvinsk.ru/after_school/obl_www/2012/work/subbotin/pvr.html
    Polar possessions of Russia
    The boundaries of the northern polar possessions of the USSR were determined by a resolution of the Presidium of the Central Executive Committee of the USSR of April 15, 1926. The water border then passed from the Kola Peninsula through the North Pole to the Bering Strait. In 1997, Russia ratified the 1982 Law of the Sea Convention. The Convention establishes the same 12 miles of sovereign territorial waters and 200 miles of the economic zone - with free navigation, but with exclusive rights to use mineral and biological resources. True, any country can claim an exclusive economic zone with a length of more than 200 miles, if it is proved that the shelf from its shores extends beyond this distance.
    To achieve rights to the polar possessions, Russia will have to prove that the underwater ridges of Lomonosov and Mendeleev are of continental origin, connected with the territory of Russia. As regards the Lomonosov Ridge, this is disputed by Denmark, which believes that the ridge is a sunken part of Greenland. To collect evidence that the Lomonosov Ridge is a continuation of the polar possessions of the Russian Federation, the Russian side conducted an unprecedented expedition Arctic 2007 in July-August 2007, consisting of surface and underwater parts and culminating in the establishment of the Russian flag at the bottom of the Arctic Ocean at the North Pole Of the earth.
    Also polar possessions in the Arctic are the United States, Canada, Denmark, Norway.
    Now, in determining its possessions, Russia has to build on its coastal boundaries and research data from the bottom of the Arctic Ocean. The current Arctic coast of Russia is 22,6 thousand km long, more than double the length of the Arctic coast of all other neighboring states (38,7 thousand km).

    So you need to firmly defend your polar possessions.

    Many people know about this, but I think it will not be superfluous to repeat- "On September 16, 2013, at a conference call between Russian President Vladimir Putin and the leadership of the Ministry of Defense, the Supreme Commander-in-Chief especially noted the arrival of a group of Russian warships to the western coast of Kotelny Island of the Novosibirsk Islands archipelago.

    “Russia is rebuilding a military base in the Novosibirsk Islands for effective and safe control in this part of the Arctic,” the President emphasized.

    “Our military left there in 1993, and meanwhile, this is a very important point in the Arctic Ocean, a new stage in the development of the Northern Sea Route. We agreed that at this point we will not only recreate the military base, but also put in order the airfield and make it possible for representatives of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, hydrologists, specialists who work on the climate to take part in joint work in order to ensure the safety and efficiency of work on the Northern Sea Route. ", - said Vladimir Putin."
    So Russia has seriously and forever decided to stay in the Arctic and explore its vast natural resources with the support of our valiant armed forces!
    God save Russia and Holy Russia!

    Yankers like to open their mouths to another's loaf. The events of the past 15 years show this very well.
    Such movements must be stopped immediately and in the bud.
    It's hard to believe about the "untold riches" of the Arctic, such words are more like propaganda of the "Soviet" flood of stagnation times.
    In short, I think that this is greatly exaggerated.
    But that there you can profitably use the promising trade route of the Northern Sea Route (due to the melting of polar ice), I think this is more real. And here we certainly do not need any outside "partners".

    In the Arctic, it is necessary to arrange the MBR so that they fly to the USA through the Arctic Ocean. They have nothing in the Arctic about. And patriots on land, already in America, are not threatened by our IBR.

    Aha, money for the construction of mine poo in permafrost can you get out of the piggy bank? Or roads with forest plantations nah..chish for the "Topol"?

    2007 year Fashington. Third Rey Bunker .., Sorry, Government Bunker. 300-ton committee meeting There are 300 masons and all past and future presidents (with the exception of Washington, Roosevelt, Kennedy).
    The main masson enters the podium:
    - Gaspoda, next year a black man will become president. There is already a dedicated person.
    - Also, the issue of pacifying Russia is on the agenda. Next year we plan to arrange a small victorious war in Georgia. No ... Calm down ... This is not in Georgia ... No ... This is not the state ... No panic. So, in Russia, the president will just change. They will not be up to it.
    - Mr. Obama, from tomorrow you will start your pre-election race. You are going to that very Georgia. Present this tie to the local president (hands over a red tie). A Russian proverb is written on it: "He who does not work, he eats." Let them see that we know Georgian culture well.
    - So, sit down sir, the future president. Yes, and do not believe in these predictions in the last president ... (the whole hall laughs). Yes, and hide the banana ... (the audience rumbles again).
    - It’s lunch now, and after lunch we’ll discuss the organization of the terrorist attack by Chechen bandits. Americans need to be afraid of Chechnya. Yes, calm down ... Yes, I know ... I know ... the Czech Republic is a beautiful country .... No ... Not the Czech Republic ... No ... Okay ... Lunch ... Then we'll discuss this ... Guard, take a banana from this .... Say that you can’t interrupt your sweet appetite ...

    Time will put everything in its place. We will allow Europe to take as many energy resources as necessary so as not to die! And so for three generations ahead, so as not to crap from now on!

    Ahead is a series of clashes in the Arctic: Russo-Danish, Russo-Norwegian, Russo-Canadian and Russo-American wars. However, all these countries are NATO members, which means that this is another strategic conclusion about the future potential enemy ...

    Russia, in turn, relies on the prudence of the member states of the Arctic Council and calls on them to peacefully resolve any conflicts related to the separation of the shelf and the Arctic Ocean.


    It is possible to calculate, but it is better to show new calculations of the trajectories of "Blue", "Bulava" and "Liner" with calculations wink

    So the Boreas were created like walruses for the Arctic. And from the North Pole only the USSR launched rockets from a submarine with a normal result. It will bring the rocket for borea to mind and there will be an interesting alignment, since the Scandinavians have the greatest experience in ice swimming in Russia. And the people mostly relate to cold calmly. The Arctic is not a desert where it is hot. And only Russia has unique knowledge and experience in polar stations, aviation, and meteorology. Do not lose these advantages. And landing is a song .... soldier hi
