US Department of State: Washington is concerned about the actions of the Russian military in the Arctic

64
US State Department spokesman Mark Toner said during the briefing that Washington is concerned about the actions of the Russian military in the Arctic, but believes that such issues should be resolved jointly with other states in the region.




“I can say that there are concerns about the actions of the Russian military, but this should be discussed within the framework of the Arctic Council,” RIA quoted him as saying "News".

Toner also stressed that the US authorities are in favor of "more substantial transparency regarding actions in the Arctic."

Recently, the Russian Federation has been actively developing the northern territories, including extracting hydrocarbons, and also develops the Northern Sea Route, which is becoming an alternative to traditional routes from Europe to Asia. To protect the interests of Russia in the Arctic region, a whole range of measures are being taken, including military ones, which take into account the increased attention to the Arctic by the NATO member states.

In April of last year, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that a unified system of submarines and surface ships was being created in the Russian part of the Arctic. In addition, he announced an increase in the reliability of the protection of the Russian Arctic border, including by strengthening the maritime component of the border group.

      Russia directly says that it will not give its part of the Arctic to anyone! - How much more transparent? stop

        How America will not understand that Russia is not the Baltic States and what passed and remained in the 90s when American advisers in the Kremlin (about 500 foreigners had special passes to the Kremlin!) said which troops to destroy and where to put the rest. The right of a sovereign state to engage in any economic activity and to transfer citizens and troops on its territory as it pleases. America wants to take this right on a global scale. With someone it turns out, with us in recent years, the bummer comes out. So why worry?

        Let them wait - maybe the reincarnation of Yeltsin will happen ... Oh, God forbid ...

      And you read the wording - the states do not have their own armed forces in the Arctic region, so they are hinting to other, northern countries that they, too, become indignant and oppress Russia or threaten it.
      Now and here they haven’t waved weapons yet - there’s nothing to wave, here
      Toner also stressed that the US authorities are in favor of "more substantial transparency regarding actions in the Arctic."

    Well, merikasosikov would not have worried about our activity in the Arctic! This is the shortest way to the states of the submarine fleet. By the way, the Arctic bowels and the North Sea. the way is also a tidbit for them. It is urgent to accuse Russia of violating all the rules that we "Arctic" countries will now come up with together, and since we can’t bomb them with impunity like Yugoslavia, we will accuse the Russians of aggression. This is the meaning of these effusions from the white house.

    How could he not worry? And we would be glad to send troops to the Arctic, but the trouble is that it is half-equipped with blacks who cannot stand the cold, and military equipment is not designed for use in such conditions. In the last war, we were still convinced that only cotton sweatshirts help and fur products (Obama needs to urgently consult with Merkel, she should know this) So in synthetic jackets and with a rifle that wedges even at freezing temperatures, it is better not to go to the Arctic.

    Restless you are ours. Everything in the world excites. That way you can lose your sleep and lose your mind.

    It seems that we should write that Fushington is concerned about ALL actions of the RF ALWAYS and EVERYWHERE.

    So Washington is always worried when his hands are short and cannot affect us. In Siberia they were worried, and now in the Arctic. They probably lost their sleep a long time ago, the pressure hits the head and the temperature rises. We don’t give a damn about their Arctic Council - our territory is what we want to do. Nehru to meddle.
