Russia did not interfere with the passage of a NATO warship along the Northern Sea Route


The largest ship of the Norwegian Coast Guard, the icebreaker Svalbard, headed for the Beaufort Sea along the Russian-controlled Northern Sea Route. This is reported by The Independent Barents Observer. The press service of the Sevmorflot of the Russian Federation has so far refrained from commenting.


According to the Norwegian Ministry of Defense, the purpose of the naval vessel is to lift three buoy stations on board, the study of which will answer many important questions about temperature changes in the Arctic Ocean. The ship's crew consists of 55 people, as well as scientists from the CAATEX international climate project.

According to the Norwegian Defense Ministry, the 5700 nautical mile NATO warship route will mostly go along the Northern Sea Route - through the zone economic interests of Russia.


It should be noted that the voyage of Svalbard through the northern Russian seas takes place without any permission or notification from the relevant Russian authorities. At the same time, Moscow has repeatedly made statements that it considers this region "its own", access to which is prohibited for the Alliance's fleet.

In 2018, the logistics support ship of the French Navy "Rona" passed along the Northern Sea Route. Then in Russia they noted that this military vessel had no weapons, and its direct purpose was towing, rescue operations and elimination of environmental pollution.

However, the Norwegian icebreaker Svalbard is a warship. It carries a 57-mm Bofors naval gun, and also has a modern three-dimensional TRS-3D radar for military purposes. In addition, a multifunctional NHI NH90 helicopter is located on the deck of the ship, which is capable of using anti-submarine weapons.

    It would not be bad to clarify when and how its passage was agreed. I suppose everything was done according to the rules, so I don't see a problem. Ukrainian boats under the bridge also walked quite calmly until they started to greyhound.

      The article seems to clearly say:

        Looked again, Svalbard north of Svalbard rubs

        The largest ship of the Norwegian Coast Guard, the icebreaker Svalbard, headed for the Beaufort Sea, sailed along the Russian-controlled Northern Sea Route.

        The Beaufort Sea, if anything in the east off the coast of Alaska, how and where it passed through our waters without agreement is not clear.

      What's the point? Pass along the NSR, at least pass from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific, or vice versa. Has this ship passed? No ... Well, what to talk about?

      ... yes, of course, they agreed more than once, since there along the entire passage, Russian underwater and surface tracking devices are poked ...

      We are worn out again ...

      They just wiped themselves off!

      I am simply bastard from such a brazen NATO provocation in the Russian Northern Sea Route! belay
      If everything was as the author wrote, then Russia simply either got cold feet, or there was absolutely nothing for us to respond to this insolence of NATO !!! repeat

      I would like to see how the Russian military ship would pass in the same way as at home, along the NSR along North America - American Alaska, Canada and Greenland !!! Which of them would let us do that ?! NATO and the United States are striving to block our access to the Atlantic and Pacific oceans in the north!

      I can imagine what valuable information in the military sense they have collected for themselves at the same time - the pilot maps of all forvators have been recorded on their maps.
      And now, in the event of a war, they will be able to bludgeon our ships with their drones - surface and underwater - without any problems, knowing where and how ships and submarines can pass and hide!
      And for sure, strategically, our opponents have learned much more about us than we can imagine.

        That's right, if .... I looked again, it is still north of Spitsbergen, as you can see for yourself. Hammer in the search for Svalbard on the site

        Top of the list is him. There is no talk of any Pacific Ocean. For now, anyway.

    I wonder how the author knew that there are no permissions? He does not refer to any source when talking about it. So we can assume that this is just his speculation and nothing more. And if permission was obtained, what then?

      This is the only case when from the frequent repetition of the word Halva in the mouth felt sweet. The Russians have already been convinced that the Arctic is theirs, so they are outraged.
      The fact that the "economic zone" has nothing to do with the border - you need to know, but they, washed out, need it?

        Do not open your mouth to our halva stop , use shoe polish from African American boots. sad
        The economic zone and the border are one thing, while the Northern Sea Route is somewhat different. And there is nothing different to do there. It's time for you unwashed to figure it out winked

    1. The ship is military and, in addition to standard weapons, has a TRS-3D radar
    2. The route of the NATO warship passes along the Russian Northern Sea Route
    3. I did not request or notify the permission of the RF authorities
    4. The voiced goal is an obvious cover for the provocation, apparently the employees of the corresponding Russian structures are being held for idiots
    5. Scientists from the international climate project CAATEX aboard the warship actually serve as a human shield, similar to the hostages of terrorists.
    6. If access to the fleet of the North Atlantic Alliance is denied, then it does not matter which ship violates the ban and therefore must be arrested and escorted to the nearest port of the Russian Federation, and in case of refusal or resistance, sunk!
    7. Lack of proper response to provocations - encourages the impudence of provocateurs, bewilderment of those who are obliged to suppress such provocations and the population.

    Such behavior is non-resistance to evil by violence, in the spirit of the philosophy of the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry

      It seems that there is no reason for bewilderment and regret, due to the absence of an incident.

    So all these ships requested official permission from the Russian Federation to pass, and they received it.
    Without the permission of the Russian Federation, NOT ONE ship of a foreign state can pass along the NSR, because it partially passes through her ducts.
    Why would the Russian Federation interfere with the ships, which it itself gave permission?
