Russia has practically “closed” the Northern Sea Route for foreign ships: why is this being done


Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on amendments to the law "On the internal sea waters of the Russian Federation", which practically closed the Northern Sea Route for foreign ships.


Now, according to the new rules, in order to use our sea route, the owner of a foreign ship must submit an application in advance (90 days in advance). At the same time, the latter may not be approved or subsequently canceled if there are good reasons for this.

However, even this is not the main thing. According to the adopted changes, only one foreign ship, whether military or civilian, can be in the waters of the Northern Sea Route. Moreover, foreign submarines will be able to pass along the Russian northern sea route only on the surface.

Naturally, these rules do not suit and, most likely, will not be accepted by the US and its NATO partners. Moreover, the US Department of the Navy recently unveiled a new Blue Arctic strategy, during which the ships of the alliance should patrol the Russian coast in the polar latitudes in order to prevent Moscow from advancing in the Far North.

Obviously, the clash between Russia and the collective West in the Arctic is predetermined.

At the same time, our military command is ready for various scenarios, including the most negative ones. In this regard, a Russian plan has been developed and is already being implemented to counter possible provocations from unfriendly countries in the Arctic.

Right now, Russia is building up its reconnaissance and countermeasure capabilities in northern latitudes. At the same time, in the event of aggressive actions or provocations by the United States and its allies, certain “practical actions” are envisaged, the details of which, of course, are not disclosed.

    Taking into account the psychological effect of Putin's repeated drawing and erasing of the "red lines" signed by him and flushed down the toilet with the Ultimatum, it is better for us to first put forceful arguments on the US table, and only then put forward new demands. Otherwise, they may not even notice them.

      Concerning strange behavior Putin ...
      Let's answer our own question: Is there any serious reason to believe that the Americans abandoned the puppet regime in Russia after Yeltsin? Could they afford to let a nuclear power "free float"? Do they have the necessary amount of altruism and irresponsibility towards themselves?
      If the reasonable answer is no, then it is probably naive to expect such decisions from Putin..
      On the other hand, this is the only way out for the survival of Russia.
      I think there's something to think about here.

        That is, in your opinion, now two pro-American regimes have collided in Ukraine? Cool States muddied.

          Kasabok boy is right.
          Ukraine and Russia in the hands of the Anglo-Saxons is:
          - "lighter" for the war in Europe with Russia, in which the Europeans will forced take part, shed your blood and destroy Russia, becoming slaves and an industrial appendage of the United States
          - source of superprofits of the US military-industrial complex
          - the key to Russia's nuclear weapons, which, after its defeat, the United States will be able to attack China

    So they will check who is stronger. On our side, the infrastructure and the proximity of the bases. There will be no shooting. Let them try the rest.

      Put forceful arguments on the table to the States we are long overdue and across Ukraine. Without them, the SVO turned into a game with one (our) goal. What good will it be when they once again spit on us here.
      Have we finally found the psychological readiness to face the United States head-on? Then why exactly here, and not at the time of the presentation of our Ultimatum? Why did they run up against sanctions and voluntarily climb into the bloody trap of the NVO?
      So far I can see the readiness to receive another spit

      There is also a second option. Collision on the Northern Sea Route with NATO, and the beginning of a war with them. Since drawing us into this war is the plan of the United States, in order to destroy us at the hands of the Europeans, - This option is also not suitable for us.
      The "gates" of the team that plays against us are not in Ukraine, and not even in Europe. They are across the ocean - in the United States.
      This is where our "strike" should be sent in the form of a threat (for now) of physical destruction in order to force them to retreat - in Ukraine and elsewhere

        If our strike proves ineffective, we will be destroyed immediately. And if it is effective, the West will simply retreat. Those. we risk more...

          Quite the contrary, Constantin N
          Just like in 1962 we are not threatened now, but destruction is guaranteed. Then - as a result of a "decapitating" strike from Turkey and Italy and the subsequent, massive, main one, now - in the war with NATO. Under these conditions, putting our lives at stake, we risk a little, much less than the United States and Great Britain. It is we who cannot retreat, and we will go right up to mutual destruction, they can and will retreat. Therefore, our position is stronger. It's the deciding factor, as in 1962, as in 1942 near Moscow

      This is correct, but in order to avoid unnecessary fuss of the enemy, it is wiser to first keep him in place by the threat of the use of strategic nuclear weapons on his territory. To not be under illusions and not create problems for us, as it is happening now

    Such an approach (permissive) is undoubtedly correct. Friendly China can be allowed, the rest of FIG. But in general, it is necessary to add Russian icebreaking escort to the list of prerequisites, paid of course

      I guess, that bombs under us, like under everyone else, were always planted by the Anglo-Saxons, as the only nation in the world that has several centuries of experience in governing other states.

    Let's not talk about some "practical actions" here. It's clear with them. Nothing, zero! Engels was bombed twice - the answer was two transformers, which were replaced in three days.
    For something else. If a gang of gopniks has pinned you to the wall and you only have the strength for one strong blow, what is the right thing to do? That's right - choose the main one and try to get it. If you succeed, you can leave with your head up.
    So: at the beginning, adopt laws on the annulment of the Belovezhskaya agreements and declare that all former republics belong to the USSR-2, respectively, and about the holy war for the liberation of Ukraine.
    Substantiate the facts and present the United States with claims to support Ukraine with intelligence in striking at Engels. Warn that if something like this is repeated anywhere, there will be strikes on targets in the United States. "Poseidons! - your way out! The largest US naval bases are Norfolk and San Diego. Sweep them off the face of the Earth and you will be happy.
    Of course, before that, alert all carriers of the Russian Federation. Submarines of the Northern Fleet - under the ice of the ocean, submarines of the Pacific Fleet - into the depths of the Sea of ​​\uXNUMXb\uXNUMXbOkhotsk, aircraft in the area of ​​\uXNUMXb\uXNUMXbthe North Pole, mines of the Strategic Missile Forces - open.

    Smiled. In the Donbass, the bridges are broken as a coward in order to disrupt the logistics of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. And here they are going to sink NATO ships. Yes, NATO flooded so brazenly, because they know that our ignoramuses have already done their best!

      China is not at all a brotherly country, but a country that is friendly to us, one can say a partner that is worth a lot in modern times. Are you aware that China supplied a high-voltage submarine cable to Russia and laid it to the Crimea on its own ship? The company that did this asked not to make a hype in the media so as not to fall under sanctions, but this is a fact. In general, China does a lot of critically important things for the Russian Federation, but does not like excessive publicity. I can agree that the Celestial Empire does this not out of love for us, but out of understanding of the common threat from the West. But Russia has no particular choice, China is the key to Russia's survival
