From the UK to Singapore: how the world divides the skin of the "arctic" bear


The status quo reached by polar countries (Russia, Canada, USA, Norway, Iceland, Sweden, Denmark, Finland) partly restrains their initiative and does not allow them to take unilateral steps. However, the institution of “observer countries” in the Arctic Council today can be used by geopolitical centers to strengthen the struggle in the Arctic region. This conclusion was made by experts of the Center for Strategic Estimates and Forecasts, analyzing the positions and motives of the activity of the observer countries of the Arctic Council. A REGNUM correspondent read the report.

Today, the observer countries under the Arctic Council include the United Kingdom, Germany, India, Spain, Italy, China, the Netherlands, Poland, Singapore, France, South Korea and Japan. These countries, having their own ambitions and aspirations in the region, do not formally have the right to vote on Arctic issues, but they may well assist leading players in the struggle to defend their interests; this is the bet, the report says.

According to experts, of the eight Arctic countries, Norway pays the most attention to the potential of observer countries. This country conducts an active dialogue with such states as Singapore, China, South Korea, trying to involve them in solving a number of issues including in their own interests.

Singapore expects to get a result from the "sale" of its own achievements to other participants of the Arctic race. That is why Singapore today is a profitable ally for many other Arctic states. First of all, they are interested in the experience and recognition of this country in the international law of the sea. Significant are also the experience and achievements of Singapore in the creation, management and development of marine and coastal infrastructure, as well as in shipbuilding, concluded the Center for Strategic Evaluations and Forecasts.

South Korea among the observer countries is one of the most active players in Arctic issues, according to the authors of the study. From the point of view of Seoul, the development of the Northern Sea Route will allow the country not only to increase the production of ships of the Arctic class, but also to increase the trade turnover of Korean ports with ports in Western Europe. Experts note that Seoul in the Arctic policy relies on cooperation with the polar states. “Seoul’s closest relationship is with Russia,” the report says.

Motives of China’s behavior in solving Arctic issues are based on the thesis that the problems of the Arctic are not regional, but global in nature. “It is understood that if the decisions made in discussing Arctic issues have global implications, then China as a growing world power should have a say in them,” experts explain. Based on the analysis of the diplomatic steps of the Middle Kingdom over the past 30 years, the researchers also suggest that pragmatic considerations will be the main factors of Chinese policy in the Arctic. Today, according to the report, in order to protect its interests in the Arctic, China is focusing its efforts on achieving a number of goals. First, to get a deeper understanding of the negative consequences of how climate change in the Arctic will affect the environment in China, its climatic conditions and agriculture. Secondly, to ensure their participation in the Arctic Council in order to gradually increase the influence on decision-making concerning governance in the Arctic. Thirdly, one of the strategic goals of China, the study notes, is to ensure the security of routes for the supply of strategic raw materials to the country from the possible impact on them by the US Navy. On the whole, the Celestial Empire is already steadily integrated into the system for solving Arctic problems: from ecology to economics. “Expanding investment projects in the Arctic states, China lays the foundation of its influence in the region. Already today, through a number of major projects, China has formed the basis for building mechanisms of economic pressure on the countries of the region to ensure their own interests in the Arctic, ”experts conclude.

There are interests in the northern latitudes and the Land of the Rising Sun. For Japan, as well as for Singapore, the Arctic is a platform where Japanese innovation and technology can find a place. The Northern Sea Route has considerable economic attractiveness for the Japanese: its use will increase the flow of goods between the Japanese and Western European ports, as well as provide Japan with supremacy in shipbuilding. “Russia is viewed by the Japanese government as one of the main partners in the development of Arctic resources and shipping along the Northern Sea Route,” the study authors say. Despite this, experts make the remark that the prospect of year-round navigation along the NSR increases the value of the Kuril Islands (ports, warehouse infrastructure, objects of security systems, etc.), which will give new impetus to disputes around the islands. Experts note that Russian-Japanese relations in the Arctic region are commercial in nature. In matters of security, Japan will definitely cooperate with Washington.

As for India, it is also interested in participating in the affairs of the Arctic region. Being much more constrained in finances (12 million dollars to study the Arctic over the next five years), however, India has a number of vectors in its Arctic policy. According to the report, first of all, Indians are interested in the Arctic commercially (development of hydrocarbon reserves and participation in the development of the Northern Sea Route) and in matters of environmental safety (possible dependence of the monsoon intensity in India on climatic changes in the Arctic). Strategic partners of India, according to the study, Russia (in the economic sphere) and Norway (in science).

Russian Arctic neighbors from the West also lay out their Arctic solitaire games. First of all, it is worth paying attention to the UK as a gatekeeper to the Northern Sea Route. Analyzing the steps taken by the UK in the Arctic issue, researchers at the Center for Strategic Assessment and Forecasting suggested that London’s Arctic policy will consist of three directions. First, the UK will build a direct dialogue with the United States with the goal of dividing control over the Northern Sea Route (for two) (London from the North Atlantic, Washington - from the North Pacific). “The United Kingdom, as the“ strategic gatekeeper ”in the North Atlantic and the foundation of Atlantic dominance in Europe, is ideally suited as the“ key state ”in the upcoming new geopolitical game,” the authors of the report say. Secondly, London, relying on its own imperial experience, will not initiate politics directly, but using the potential of the British Commonwealth of Nations (4 observer countries out of 12 - Canada, Great Britain, India, Singapore are members of the Commonwealth). And thirdly, Britain will use third countries to coordinate its own policy in the Arctic. First of all, this is Poland. Given Polish activity in Arctic matters in recent years, as well as historical relations between Poland and the UK, it can be assumed, according to experts, that behind it - Poland - there is a certain plan that was not formed in Warsaw.

Another important partner is not so much the UK, but Poland in the Arctic - France. Regarding her, experts assume that, recognizing the insufficiency of their instruments of direct influence, France relies on other regional organizations, for example, the Barents Sea community. In addition, Paris is actively using the potential of "soft power", attracting non-profit organizations and public structures to form a favorable course of international politics in the Arctic region. In the analysis of the French Arctic policy, the authors of the report state that France has one of the most aggressive Arctic strategies. The country's key interests in the northern latitudes are concentrated around the extraction of hydrocarbons (operating in the Arctic TOTAL and Gaz de France) and the seafood industry. The key players in the region for France are Russia and Norway.

Another European player whose economic interests are concentrated in the Arctic is Italy. Experts note that the Arctic for Italy, as well as for Asian countries, and for Poland, for example, is an opportunity for the development of the national shipbuilding industry. In addition, Eni today plays a key role in the development of the Arctic, including in partnership with Russian companies. “Although relations between Rome and Moscow in the Arctic over the past 5-7 years have acquired the character of strategic cooperation, the Italian leadership leaves no hope for the internationalization of hydrocarbon deposits in the region,” the report says. For pressure on Russia, the Italian government does not hesitate to use the informational influence and the world public condemnation of Moscow’s activity following it. ” Indicative in this respect is the reaction of the Italian government to the position of Moscow in relation to the vessel Arctic Sunrise. In addition, according to the report, Italy is actively using the humanitarian agenda for political pressure, primarily on the Russian Federation. Experts describe Italy’s policy on Arctic issues as “proactive, but not aggressive.”

Shows the initiative and Spain. Madrid today is one of the most consistent guides of the Arctic policy for the EU. Despite the mutually beneficial economic Spanish-Russian partnership, this policy is contrary to Russian interests in the region, the report says. The characteristic for the Spaniards argument - environmental safety - has quite understandable motives, experts of the Center for Strategic Estimates and Forecasts believe: economic development of the Arctic transport routes will reduce the economic attractiveness of the Atlantic and Mediterranean ports of Spain.

The Netherlands is an interested observer country in the development of the Arctic region. “Holland is extremely interested in the development of the infrastructure of the Northern Sea Route due to the fact that it has significant experience in logistics operations, which can be useful in the development of the Arctic territories,” the study notes. As the specifics of the Dutch Arctic strategy, analysts call the emphasis on the environmental consequences of industrial development of the Arctic. “The main goal is to form a sharply negative attitude towards the world community to any attempts to exploit the resources of the Arctic without using special“ green ”technologies, the authors of the study are sure. Through attempts to secure high standards for ensuring environmental safety as international standards, Amsterdam strives to achieve favorable conditions for its companies to expand into the Arctic. ” To the extent unfriendly towards Russia, according to a study, Germany’s Arctic policy appears. “Despite close cooperation in the research area, Germany still stands as a strategic geopolitical opponent of Russia in the struggle for the resources of the polar territories,” analysts say. Nevertheless, despite this, experts from the Center for Strategic Assessment and Forecasts are confident that Germany will stop in its ambitions for the extraction of renewable resources (fish and seafood), as well as the exploitation of the Northern Sea Route. Access to the energy resources of the region will be left to Berlin for development by its partners, Norway and Russia. Experts are sure that the role of the distributor of Russian raw materials on the world market is quite satisfactory.

Summing up the Arctic policy of the states, the experts of the Center for Strategic Estimates and Forecasts distinguish a number of ambiguous and potentially dangerous trends in the rhetoric of countries. First, this is the topic of global climate change and the role of the polar regions in them. “Climate change and the role of the Arctic in them is an almost win-win topic when it is necessary to decide on the issue of access to governance structures in the region,” experts explain.

Secondly, the issue of environmental safety in the region arising from the first topic. "Ecology today allows you to take the most radical steps in case you need to protect or promote your own interests," the study says. The main objective of such activities is to achieve the adoption of strict standards that allow the operation in the Arctic only of ships created using special "green" technologies available to a limited number of countries in the region. This allows us to solve competition issues quite effectively, experts believe.

Thirdly, the issue of ensuring international access to the operation of the Northern Sea Route. This means the coming need to divide the interests of the Arctic states (mainly Russia and Canada) and the rest of the international community.

Fourth, the preservation of the ecosystems of the indigenous peoples of the North. This topic is conditional, although effective, analysts say, it affects people's interests and allows you to bring to the discussion the whole practice of diplomatic struggle and propaganda on the topic of human rights violations.

And fifth, the question of international law in the Arctic region. According to the study, the modernization of international law in the Arctic region makes it possible to effectively promote the interests of the states owning the main resource, which allows influencing the formation of new structures and relations in the field of international law. First of all, it is profitable and able to do the United States, as well as Singapore and the UK. The question of protecting one’s own interests in this case will be decided by international pressure on a country that somehow violated the established procedure.

To protect the national interests of Russia in the Arctic, experts at the Center for Strategic Estimates and Forecasts call for using the full potential of observer countries in the Arctic Council and building new configurations of foreign policy associations and unions that are beneficial for the country.

The study “Observer Countries in the Arctic Council: Positions and Motives for Action” was carried out by the Center for Strategic Evaluations and Predictions with the assistance of the A.K. Gorchakova.

        The company successfully completed drilling of the world's northernmost Arctic well, Universitetskaya-1, and discovered oil in the Vostochno-Prinovozemelsky-1 licensed area in the Kara Sea. This was done in record time - one and a half months, in compliance with all technological and environmental requirements. They did not interfere with the drilling and sanctions - the foreign partners of the oil company were given a delay. Apparently, common sense triumphed over the political ambitions of Western leaders.
        That’s round, because this is the first oil in the Arctic and went to Russia.

          And the oil is very good, and the reserves are huge, there is only one breakdown - the platform will produce oil for almost two - two and a half months a year - in June there is still ice, and in September - ice. The costs in these situations will pay off for a very long time. Maybe, after all, take advantage of the Norwegian experience and drill from the islands, mastering horizontal drilling? And where there are no islands, but there is shallow water - first create them.

        The article is empty - some kind of thin soup - vegetable. Almost nothing about Russia. And they talk about Singapore, Poland and their claims. In the light of the events of the last year, Russia is the main player in the open spaces of the NSR. Not to mention the paw-tail, but we have the constant opportunity to slam the door on the paws and tail. The military group in the North-East and in the Arctic is not growing out of scientific interest. It is clear that there are many who wish for an Arctic pie, but no less than they also for Western Siberia, the Far East. Russia is neither Poland nor Singapore. To get into the Arctic, you must first defeat Russia with its nuclear weapons and a growing civil and national identity. And again, I think that the day is not far off when we will return our part of the Bering Sea, which Shevarnadze sold to America. The second time such a number will not work with SevMor. The Arctic is almost 40% ours!

Crimea has been restored, the Arctic remains an hour, and everything will be solved with Novorossia, all territorial issues for Russia will be resolved.

          This is good, but the reality is not very consistent.
          The international status of the Arctic is enshrined in international agreements on the Arctic. The Arctic itself is divided into five sectors of responsibility between the USA, Russia, Norway, Canada and Denmark. However, the exact border of the Arctic is not defined. Initially, a sectoral approach prevailed, according to which the Arctic was divided between neighboring circumpolar states, with the north pole being the border of all interested states. In 1909, Canada declared sovereignty over all territories between the North Pole and its north coast. In May 1925, Canada officially secured its right to its Arctic sector. By a decree of the Central Executive Committee of the USSR of 1926, the entire territory from the north pole to the mainland of the USSR, limited by meridians, was declared the territory of the USSR. Nevertheless, the sectoral approach contained certain legal gaps, since it determined the legal status of islands and lands, but not the water areas of these sectors. Therefore, in 1982, the Convention on the Law of the Sea was adopted, according to which the territory of the state extends only to the Arctic shelf, while the off-zone zone is declared international. Russia joined this agreement in 1997. Under the new convention, 12 miles of coastal waters were declared territorial, and a 200-mile zone off the coast ...
          True, any country can claim an exclusive economic zone with a length of over 200 miles, if it is proved that the shelf from its shores extends beyond this distance.
          In order 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 gather 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 near North Pole of the Earth.

          the key word here is the USSR. To meet the challenges in the Arctic, we must unite. I am sure that of course the economic benefit from the Eurasian Union is an important factor in integration - but not the only one. Maybe we won’t restore the potential of the USSR - but the whole alliance with the common armed forces, air defense, the economy, etc., is more likely to defend interests (look at Europe - the EU (NATO)

        All right! In the modern world, in the XXI century, when mankind forgot the lessons of the Second World War and again began to lose the sense of self-preservation, only tough politics can save the world! Sagging means losing initiative. I believe that with Novorossia we have lost the initiative, so successfully acquired with the Crimea, that now has a pernicious effect on all vital issues! No compromises can be made with the Arctic - all that is originally ours, within the framework of the Russian Empire and the USSR, is Russian and no nails!

In the Arctic, since the 60s and until now, the main thing is not oil (which costs 10: 0,5 barrels to extract from there (and then I greatly exaggerate)), but the exit of strategic missile carriers through the ice for a strike that cannot be traced from satellites. And all the remnants of the crucifixion of NATO's friendliness to Russia is the essence of worthlessness and slyness.

        What kind of wind does any husk blow to the Arctic mouth, geographically not having any relation to the Arctic? In a good way, the Arctic should belong to those who have a sector in it. I am ready to put up with the American sector of the Arctic, because they have a piece of the coast of the Arctic Ocean through Alaska. But China, Germany and Poland - it is already crossing all borders.

      In addition, the American sector of the Arctic is a very controversial figure - Alaska was bought from us at a completely bargain price, which at current land prices cannot but arouse the interest of the Economic Crimes, since the price is corruptly low. Therefore, it is theoretically possible to terminate the deal and thereby solve two issues: we will return Alaska and remove Americans from the Arctic.

    Be that as it may, it is real (physical) to work in the Arctic in winter, and even more so (and - God forbid!) Only Russians can in the summer, to a lesser extent Canadians and Norwegians. Who has been to our tundra in summer / winter will understand me.
    The question is - the hard worker of the current "Gazprom", after the cancellation of all benefits and additional payments, earns 45-60 thousand rubles. (on the mainland, the salary of a qualified welder is about the same), even, even if we admit (can we admit it?) gas fields in the Arctic will be seized by various enemies there - Canada, China, Venezuela, or Chad, develop (extract) like this the called national property will be representatives of this (to whom everything belongs) people.
    Only the level of income, white salary, like fresh snow, will be 5-7 times higher than the current level.
    Will the hard workers, who make up 82-85% of the total number of employees / employees in Gazprom and Rosneft, grieve for a long time "from the change of ownership"?

    The motives of China's behavior in resolving Arctic issues come from the thesis that the problems of the Arctic are not regional, but global. For the past 30 years, researchers also suggest that pragmatic considerations will be the main factors of China’s policy in the Arctic .. Today, according to the report, China is focusing its efforts to achieve a number of goals in order to protect its interests in the Arctic. In general, China is already steadily integrated into the system solutions to Arctic problems: ranging from ecology to economics. Russian neighbors from the West also lay out their Arctic solitaire games. First of all, you should pay attention to the UK as a gatekeeper to the Northern Sea Route. Another European player whose economic interests are concentrated in the Arctic is Italy.

    China. The Great Acquisition, as well as Italy, all rushed into the Arctic. China - this is understandable (in every jo ... gag) The British - on their island were left with nothing but whiskey and then in Scotland. But the Italians are very interesting.

    I offer a fair exchange — any country for the right to be present in the Arctic must give Russia a certain part of its territory free of charge. For example, they want to completely freeze eggs in our Arctic and search for oil and gas — for ten square kilometers of the Arctic, Pshekia should and forever give us three thousand kilometers of their lands. and what if they find oil there, they will be hunted wassat and on their lands it can grow and nothing except weeds. only on such conditions they can be allowed into the Arctic. yes, I forgot the main thing - the maximum time of presence should not exceed ten years without the right to return to the Arctic. But, the lands received in exchange are not returned

While our ancestors were studying, it was in a scientific way that they approached the development of the northern latitudes. They died, and again collected expeditions, marked new islands on the maps, and went further and further forward. "Saint Foka", "Sedov", "Chelyuskin" are only known expeditions.

    And now this pack is fussing ... oh what are the Russians doing there? And what about the environment. In general, we also "SWIMMED" there, and that means we also want something.

    You just need to show your military presence. Identify yourself and your interests. I’m certainly not a geologist, but I’ll ask my dad. I recall the Soviet geography textbook for grade 7 and remember that the oil and gas horizon is like a slick when viewed from above, so it doesn’t cling to where the border of the Russian Federation’s possession is, the one who pumps the first oil will receive more. You understand that there is no wall between Russian oil in the Arctic and Norway conditionally. To make it even clearer, Hitler planned to take oil in the Caucasus, but he did not suspect how many useful polymers and oil and gas outside the Urals where the whole industry moved during the evacuation.

    Putin tiger Kuzya does not want to return from China

    The Amur tiger Kuzya, whom President Vladimir Putin released, pulled his claws into China. About it writes ITAR-TASS.

    Meanwhile, Chinese authorities continue to search for the rare Amur tiger Kuzi. According to environmentalists, in early October, the animal crossed the border of the People's Republic of China.

    In May of this year, Vladimir Putin released Kuzya in the Amur Region as part of a program to increase the population of this species of tigers.

    However, Kuzya did not linger in Russia and rushed to China. In any case, Kuzi’s traces have recently been found in China. At the same time, environmentalists fear that poachers could kill Kuzyu.

    The animal is believed to be located in Heilongjiang Province in the northeast of the People's Republic of China.

    .......... Our potential is probably in attracting India, the traditional ties of this country, its growing including and with our help since the days of the USSR — military power, the growing ambitions and economic interest of India — should play a role ............

      Sorry, of course, but the trend however (as the Chukchi said) is all directed toward the United States and Israel. At such a pace, in 10 years Russia will completely lose the Indian market, both civilian and military. Moreover, there are big graters between China and India, and you kind of like brothers with China forever and Indians are just the opposite. But I personally assure you that as soon as China has gained enough strength, Russia will be its strategic goal. The first US is far away, well, it’s impossible for China to start a war over the Ocean, but the second and most important thing is that China invests HUGE money in the US economy, so it’s just not profitable for them. And here you have the opposite with them - Russia is investing money in China anyway. For example, for your money they will build a gas pipeline to China. And they should have been for them. And you know what - I won’t be surprised that when you finish the Chinese, they will cut off half the price for gas and since the pipe is ready and waiting, let it be sold at half price from the world. And the equipment that they buy from you is only for copying and replication, this is a contribution to their economy. China then sells your technology around the world as OUR FINISHED PRODUCTS. And your government will simply deceive you as children, and you eat it and shout Hurray - it's easier to live, I understand.

    I just want to honestly ask the people. Does Russia really need this war in Ukraine? And to the people? What about the country? Do not leave your own? So they are not very their own. They want Russia to shed blood for them and pay money, and then they themselves will rule with a mustache and they will not even look at you in passing. In the meantime, your friends (well, the Russian government knows how to choose friends) for whom Russia back and forth works the same (well, there are all sorts of help loans and forgiveness of previous loans), IRAN supports Russia in this way in the international market. I assure you, China will be even cooler. Asians however.
    Iran follows Saudi Arabia lowered oil prices

    Iran, following Saudi Arabia, lowered oil prices on export contracts with Asian countries, two sources familiar with Iran’s pricing policy told Bloomberg. About it writes UNIAN.

    The price of oil has been reduced for all contracts with Asia, providing for the supply of raw materials in November, the agency quoted sources as saying that compared to October, the price has dropped by $ 1.

    Iran's contract prices are tied to the average monthly price of Omani oil on the Dubai Mercantile Exchange ($ 97,26 per barrel). The discount to it, taking into account the November decline, was 82 cents. Accordingly, November deliveries from Iran will go at a price of $ 96,44 per barrel - this is the largest discount on stock quotes since November 2008.

          You fight hard. I still advise you to throw away the computer (you pay the money to the Americans and Israelis), and put the system in development on a Russian computer, otherwise there is some kind of struggle. Better yet, go to the outskirts, take the machine into your hands - there, and fight the Nazis, I support you. hi

          Valery, no, my God. I have nothing against you or your flag (although I am tired of yellow-blue to a toothache). The moderators messed up this campaign, deleted the correspondence, my statement was related to pin.dos, because I am rotten, I can call it with all responsibility, only one flag, star-striped!

    Unfortunately, the bear is not all Russian, the neighbors got their legs and tail. The main thing is that they do not open their mouths for a larger one.
    something like that hi

      Oh my God! So are you an interpreter of the Torah? So enlighten the dirty one, what does it say about the Land of Israel? Who should be laid to rest according to the word of God. And who was Joshua (that is, Christ)?

    I would say to all of these small-shaven men and to all those who support them: DO NOT GET ANOTHER'S CARAUT !!! If you want to cooperate - cooperate, but the NORTHERN SEA WAY was and will be ours! And all the natural riches that are there are ours and no other is given. Near Canada, there is also a sea route, why DO NOT YOU climb there?

    All comments, of course, are good and correct - they did not take into account one point. Who is in power? That's right, hucksters who will sell their father for candy. Why bring matters to confrontation? This is a conflict, or maybe a military one. And money, as J. Rockefeller liked to say, loves silence. So, they will quietly merge the shelf into a lease (concession) with the same norgs or yuan and there will be no noise. And we will sit here and spit saliva "Don't wake the Russian bear!" Marshal Taburetkin, how many garrisons in the Arctic ditched? Who prevented him? Who punished him? That's it ...

    You’ve rolled out the lips, give them our Northern Sea Route and open your mouth on the resources of our Arctic. But huh hu not ho-ho, in vain did the revival of the former bases and garrisons in the Russian Arctic begin? It’s time to understand that ours is ours and we won’t give anything to anyone!

    Unfortunately, most Western countries understand only the language of power, because, in most cases, they only speak it, and to protect our northern possessions, we can only attach the northern group of troops so that they do not divide our beloved bear into rags at the end. Something was done under the Union, some things are being done now (legal consolidation of the exclusive economic zone, restoration of the old Arctic bases and border zones, strengthening of the Northern and Pacific Fleet). To know more that all this is done on time and in the required volumes!

    The reason for this activity is a pole shift. The Arctic will become accessible, and Yusa will cease. On its territory will be the Arctic. More details here: memocode.livejournal.com/48510.html
