Moscow has deprived NATO of access to the Russian Arctic

In the new maritime doctrine adopted at the end of July this year, the main priority of the Russian Arctic policy began to monitor the actions of other states along the entire length of the Northern Sea Route.

This provision of the document implies strengthening the activities of the RF Armed Forces at key points on the route: on the Svalbard archipelago, Franz Josef Land, on Novaya Zemlya and Wrangel Island. In order for the West to be sure of the futility of any aspirations to the Russian North, the Russian Federation needs to periodically demonstrate military force.

According to the text of the doctrine, the main threat to the security of the Russian Federation comes from the United States and NATO. The Northern Sea Route is an important transport communication, at the nodal points of which Russian military installations are located. The provisions of the doctrine make it possible to intensify the activities of the RF Armed Forces in these regions and expand Russia's military capabilities.

At the same time, foreign warships will no longer be able to use the Northern Sea Route for their own purposes. In fact, Moscow has deprived the Western military bloc of access to the Russian Arctic expanses.

Along with this, Russia is creating the Main Directorate of the Northern Sea Route, which will be led by the state corporation Rosatom. The main activities of this structure will be the development of shipping, scientific and infrastructure projects, the organization of Arctic expeditions, etc.

    It is high time to recognize NATO as a terrorist organization and cut off all economic ties. Almost no losses due to sanctions. Curtail military cooperation. Well, this is what you need to have brains to bomb a nuclear power plant. One word - bastards.

      There is no reason to recognize NATO as terrorists, no one will listen, the time for talking has gone with the start of the NMD, now actions are determined ... That's right, bases with anti-ship and anti-aircraft systems, the main argument on the Northern Sea Route.,

    Now Russian naval doctrine smacks of jungle law and shameless Darwinism. But, to live with wolves, to howl like wolves.

    If you think about it - strange garbage.
    From the age of 14, the presidents stopped eating hamburgers together, Sonny Medvedev was taken out of Omerika, and "Moscow has deprived NATO of access to the Russian Arctic" just now.
    It turns out for the common people - PR and hatred, and NATO could easily swim in our North ....
