Pravda: Russia May Close Northern Sea Route to US Navy


The Russian Federation has developed rules for the passage of warships through the Northern Sea Route. Previously, the United States of America was against the superiority of Russia on the Northern Sea Route, but the introduction of general rules for the presence of military ships in the sector can completely change the current situation.

Under the new rules, warships will have to notify Russia of their plans in the NSR in 45 days. At the same time, the Russian authorities may refuse to allow foreign warships to pass through the Northern Sea Route. If the Russian fleet notices an unauthorized movement in the region, it reserves the right to apply penalties – to arrest or even destroy the ship.

Recall, “Pravda.Ru” talked about the statement of American Admiral James Foggo, who gave a guarantee that the United States will end the rule of Russia in the Arctic.

  1. Presently, Norwegian authorities are striving to curtail Chinese research endeavours on Svalbard (Spitzbergen arckipaelago), thrying to force them to poblish everything that they do in English. (Had they demanded publishing in Norwegian, well that would be quite something!) Seems americans have not the claute to concentrate as much on Archtic navigational and earth sciénce research as the Chinese do… …My guess is the Chinese sell research results to the Russian navy and air force who are by treaty interdicted from having stations on Svarbard. (These islands are demilitariser by treaty of 1923, to which also GB, USA, CHina and USSR(Russia) are also signatories)
