    It is a justifiable decision, if we deploy a military group in the Arctic, then the command should be separate in view of the specific conditions of the troops.

      and more importantly, that this very command would privately manage the finances allocated to them for the development of the Arctic

    From missiles fired from the Arctic, their European missile defense is useless. For them, it becomes a real nail in the ass. And to drag out the missile defense system from Canada is a painfully long prospect.

      this is no longer a nail in the ass - rather a dowel in the railroad!

      I think this is not about launching missiles, but about staking out in the Arctic.
      The Arctic is the resource base of our grandchildren!

        Today we will declare, and tomorrow will come and see what how much. Do not forget about oil and a huge amount of water (ice). Tomorrow water can become very popular. We are doing a good deed.

      An interesting thought. Maybe all this hype with the development of the Arctic is a cover for the deployment of missiles on this shelf? And the accelerating section is not over Europe, but over the Russian Federation. Which, in turn, makes the European missile defense system hopeless. Maybe this is exactly what they hinted about - "we will give an answer against missile defense with minimal financial and time losses"? Simple and tasteful, like everything ingenious

    The solution is right and timely. It’s good that it is being created promptly, without any bureaucratic delays. Good luck in protecting the interests of Russia in a promising and important region. This is ours, we will not give it back.

      With this command, the controllability of troops will increase.

    It would be more likely to bring Crimea into full combat readiness, so that for some people the illusions would disappear on return.
