The Pentagon noticed Russia's additional efforts to "build up military power" in the Arctic

The Pentagon’s leadership is observing an increase in Russia's military activity in the Arctic zone, reports RIA News Statement by Senior Director of the United States Department of Defense for Europe and NATO, Rachel Ellhuse.

The Pentagon noticed Russia's additional efforts to "build up military power" in the Arctic


“As in the Baltic region, in the Arctic, we see additional changes (from the side) that weren’t observed before,” she told a congressional hearing.

She explained that we are talking, in particular, about "building up military power and conducting military exercises."

At the same time, Ellhuses argued that these actions of Moscow contradict the basic principle of Washington, according to which "the Arctic should be free from military activity."

Congressional hearings were held to assist European allies, and almost entirely focused on the topic of "deterring Russian aggression."

In particular, David Ellwin, Director for Strategy and Policy of the European Command, stated that “in the European theater of action we see Russia gaining strength, which threatens countries on the periphery of NATO.” According to him, “The European Command does not have enough personnel and means to respond,” but the Allied assistance program allowed him to “quickly respond to the events.”

    And we also noticed how they are pumping military equipment and manpower into Europe and the republics of the former USSR.

        It is precisely for this that Russia is strengthening its military presence in the Arctic. So that some countries would not have thought to open their mouth to Russia there. The smaller the USA in the Arctic, the calmer we feel.

          Russia is returning to the Arctic in the military sense - this is a fact, but the fact that it doesn’t like striped is designed for that .....

        And despite the fact that we go to the baths at least once a week, and they do not more often than once a year. We have soap and cleanliness, they have perfumes and deodorants. Scabies and stink.

      And in response, they drilled a hole in the joint venture. Great bite. Envy.

      "Moscow's actions contradict the basic principle of Washington"

      Compatriots, fellow citizens, I’m not afraid of this word, fellow countrymen! fellow But is any of us here in OUR Russia interested in any way what kind of principles do Washington have in general? laughing
      Yes, we put our collective, 140 millionth, huge, Russian-fresh bolt on these principles, from the highest tower!
      Phew ... Feel better ... yes

    The Russian shelf in the Arctic is a zone of our interests. Let this Rachel go on foot on a sexual journey to the North Pole from her territory.

          Yes, let them quack! Their decisions are not carried out not by the states, not by China, but the Russian Federation has its own Constitutional Court.

    Neither primary, nor secondary principles of Fashington should excite us! These are their internal problems ...

    "They don’t go to someone else’s monastery with their charter." Leave the Washington principles to the USA. Russia does what it wants in its territories!

    Great American grief: Spykman’s concept of Rimland ordered a long life, but they haven’t come up with anything new to strangle Russia. Well, the NATO members will not climb with their electrical tape to the pole - after all, they will freeze there that so interferes with the dancers.

    we also have principles according to which we are not asking anything from anyone and are not going to ask!
