    Russia to Double Military Troops on Novaya Zemlya in Arctic by 2020

    Russian troop grouping on Novaya Zemlya Island will be doubled by 2020, according to the statement of source.Russia will double its military might on its Novaya Zemlya archipelago in the Arctic by 2020, a source in the Russian military told RIA Novosti on Thursday.

    "Today, an increase in Arctic groupings of troops and equipment is underway in Russia’s Central Range [on Novaya Zemlya] and according to our plans, troop groupings will be doubled by 2020," the source said

    The Arctic is considered to be a major source of hydrocarbons, minerals, fresh water and fish. The region's resources are a matter of interest for countries bordering the area, including Russia, the United States, Canada, Norway, and Denmark.

    In 2013, Moscow announced a strategy to increase its presence in the Arctic and to boost the region's development by 2020. Since then, Russia has been particularly active in exploring opportunities in the region.

    In December 2014, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a revised military doctrine for the country, under which it is planned to build a unified network of military facilities in Russia's Arctic territories to host troops, warships and aircraft, as part of an effort to strengthen border defense in the region.

    Arctic armored “Toros” can be equipped with thermal imager and learn to resist “Javelin”

    The fighting vehicle of fire support and maintenance “Toros” created in Murom, which has a chance to enter the Russian Arctic arms brigades, may become even deadlier.

    Presented at the International Forum “Army 2015″ sample was equipped with a combined sight TKN-4GA. In the “day” mode it can be used to detect targets at ranges up to 5,500 m, and at night – up to 1500 m.

    The sight TKN-4GA-03 enhances the range of parameters of vision and precise shooting object 1.5-2 times with respect to the serial products, regardless of ambient light level, time of day, season and weather conditions, the characteristics of the combat situation on the ground, using only passive mode.

    Russia intensifies construction of military facilities in Arctic

    The projects are implemented on the Franz Josef Land archipelago, the Novaya Zemlya, the Severnaya Zemlya Archipelago, on the Wrangel Island and Cape Schmidt (Chukotka) and on the New Siberian Islands

    MOSCOW, September 29. /TASS/. The Russian Federal Agency for Special Construction (Spetsstroy) has increased to 1,500 the number of engineers working on the construction of Defense Ministry’s facilities in the Arctic, says Spetsstroy’s report received by TASS on Tuesday. According to the report, about 13 government contracts on the construction of military garrisons and airfields are being implemented.

    The projects are implemented on Alexandra Land (Franz Josef Land archipelago), in the Rogachevo settlement (the Novaya Zemlya), on Sredny Island (the Severnaya Zemlya Archipelago) on Wrangel Island and Cape Schmidt (Chukotka) and on Kotelny Island (the New Siberian Islands). As many as 57,700 tonnes of construction materials were delivered there in the first half of the year, and 24,200 more tonnes of cargo have been prepared at ports for dispatch.

    "Currently, 1,490 workers with 337 equipment units are engaged in the construction of Spetsstroy’s facilities in the Russian Arctic zone. An additional group of 105 highly skilled workers and engineering staff will arrive at the islands soon," Spetsstroy reported. "The work is going non-stop and in two or three shifts during the polar night."

    In mid-September, Russian Northern Fleet’s Arctic brigade units landed on the Kotelny Island. They started to build a base camp. A total of 230 troops and 30 tracked vehicles were dispatched to the island. The next step will be the development of new territories: a scientific research expedition of military hydrographers in the waters near the Franz Josef Land and Novaya Zemlya has found nine previously unknown islands in the Borzova, Sedova, Vilkitskogo and Glazova gulfs.

    Before the 1990s, Russia had a developed airfield infrastructure in the Arctic. The Defense Ministry is now actively restoring these Soviet airbases. The Temp strategic airfield on the Kotelny Island has been restored first, and now - airstrips in Tiksi, Naryan-Mar, Alykel, Anadyr Rogachev, Nagurskoe and bomber base of the Northern Fleet on the Kola Peninsula are being developed. The Russian Air Force and aerospace defense force groupings are being expanded in the Arctic. According to Air Force Commander Viktor Bondarev, "normal regiments and full divisions will be deployed there."

    In 2014, President Vladimir Putin included the defense of the country’s Arctic borders in the list of the main tasks of the Armed Forces. To this end, the Arctic Joint Strategic Command North was established in 2014 by the Russian military on the basis of the Northern Fleet, then it was reinforced with manpower and hardware from the Western, Central and Eastern Military Districts stationed in circumpolar areas. Russia is also in the process of building of 10 airfields and 13 air-defense radar stations in the New Siberian Islands, Franz Josef Land, Novaya Zemlya and other points of Russian Arctic. The ground element of the command will incorporate two Arctic motorised infantry brigades, Air Defense forces consisting of Pantsir-S1 missile and other systems, and the Northern Fleet will become its main striking force. Furthermore, by 2017 the Tiksi airport complex will be operational, and it will be garrisoned with upgraded MiG-31 interceptors.

    Arctic Militarization ‘Moot Point’ - NORAD Commander

    US head of Northern Command and Commander of NORAD Admiral William Gortney said that the Arctic has already been militarized by both the United States and Russia as an area of mutual strategic interest.

    The Arctic has already been militarized by both the United States and Russia as an area of mutual strategic interest, US head of Northern Command and Commander of the North American Air Defense Command (NORAD) Admiral William Gortney said.

    "I think we already have militarized the Arctic," Gortney stated at the Atlantic Council on Wednesday.

    Responding to a question on Russian military activity in the region, Gortney said the issue of militarizing the Arctic "is a moot point."
    Gortney, who is also the Department of Defense’s chief advocate for the Arctic, noted that both the United States and Russia have ballistic missile submarines already patrolling the Arctic.

    It is possible, however, for the Arctic became a "flash point" of conflict, Gortney said.

    NORAD is tasked with controlling the aerospace warning systems to defend the North American continent. The warning system includes detection and validation of attacks by aircraft and missiles from space.

    Northern Command is charged with overseeing land, air and sea-based security with other national partners on the North American continent.

    Similar news, in English, from RT

    https://www.rt.com/news/318427-arctic-science-russia-expedition/

    As if Russia weren’t already the biggest country in the world, it now appears to have added some land. No, no referendum has been held this time – a Russian Arctic naval expedition has discovered nine new (uninhabited) islands and islets.

    A total of some 10 square kilometers has been added. That’s five Monacos or 20 Vaticans.

    The biggest island discovered is 2 kilometers in length and 600 meters across – 26 times bigger than the latest island found in the Arctic, a Russian Northern Fleet official said, according to TASS news agency.

    Altogether, the 41-day scientific naval expedition discovered nine islands and islets, five straits, seven capes and four harbors. The ships Senezh and Plashkout covered about 10,000 kilometers.

    It became possible to discover new geographical territories in the well-explored Franz Josef Land and Novaya Zemlya archipelagos due to the warming of the Arctic, which is causing the ice to melt. Many glaciers are retreating, revealing new islands which were earlier hidden. Glaciers have retreated on average by 2-5 kilometers since 1952, scientists say.

    Russian Military in Arctic to Get Permafrost-Resistant Office Equipment

    The Russian military will receive office equipment that is resistant to Arctic permafrost and other adverse conditions associated with sea and field missions, the equipment manufacturer said Wednesday.

    The United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation (UIMC), a part of the Rostec state technologies corporation, designed a color scanner and a thermal printer that function in extreme conditions and even upside down.

    "This equipment can work steadily at temperatures between —40 and +50 Celsius and humidity as high as 95 percent, while thermal printing ensures high quality of texts and images printed in frosty weather with minimum material consumption," UIMC Innovative Development Department Director Alexander Kalinin told RIA Novosti.

    Kalinin stated that UIMC-made office equipment provides best results when working in the open air, on wheeled or tracked vehicles, at sea and in combat.

    Two years ago, Russia unveiled a strategy to boost its presence in the Arctic, an area believed to hold huge oil and natural gas reserves. Russia has been identifying deposits within its offshore border areas, as have the United States, Canada, Norway and Denmark.

    My father lived on an airforce base in north Manitoba at the arctic, and I believe near the one in Alaska as well back in the 80's.  Apparently he said that there were months were you just didn't leave the base at all as you couldn't (snowed in completely) and it sucked for him as he was lead technician for radar installation and maintenance so if you had to get out there, you had to find a way.

    The US Coast Guard Is (Quietly) Building Up Allies in the Arctic

    The United States Coast Guard announced Friday the creation of a new international forum for cooperation in the Arctic. Signed at the United States Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut, the new Arctic Coast Guard Forum will include coast guards or similar agencies from Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Russia and the United States.

    “Today’s historic Arctic Coast Guard Forum represents a critical step forward in our collective efforts to promote safety, security and environmentally responsible maritime activity in the Arctic,” said Coast Guard Commandant Admiral Paul Zukunft. “As the ocean becomes more accessible to human activity, all Arctic nations have committed to enhancing maritime cooperation in this remote and challenging environment.”

    The forum complements the Arctic Council, and several groups focused on Arctic business development, as nations seek to increase operations, ensure safety and security, and address common challenges in the rapidly changing region. While the Arctic Council provides a forum for high level diplomatic cooperation on Arctic issues, the Arctic Coast Guard Forum will be an operational entity to leverage collective resources and coordinate communications, operational plans, and on-the-water activity.

    An Effective Model for Cooperation

    This latest agreement is modeled on the North Pacific Coast Guard Forum and the North Atlantic Coast Guard Forum formed in 2000 and 2007. Meeting regularly, these forerunners share strategies, conduct exercises, and coordinate operations to leverage limited resources and bring each nation’s jurisdiction to bear on transnational threats.

    At the latest Pacific forum in September, representatives discussed rules of behavior when their forces operate in proximity, adopted voluntary guidelines for combined operations to guide patrols, and planned for a multi-national, multi-mission exercise. Past efforts include joint ship patrols to combat illegal high seas driftnet fishing, planning for oil spills, and security assessments.

    The Changing Arctic Environment


    The new forum comes as steadily melting Arctic ice is opening more water to seasonal maritime traffic, natural resource usage, and other activity. The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), which monitors the annual summer ice melt in the Arctic, reported that 2015 had the fourth lowest extent of ice since monitoring began in 1979 and sea ice declined 13.4 percent per decade between 1981 and 2010.

    “What we have seen this summer reinforces our conclusions that Arctic sea ice extent is in a long-term decline and that we are headed for a seasonally ice-free ocean,” said NSIDC director Mark Serreze. Since scientists began monitoring Arctic ice coverage with satellites, the nine lowest years for summer ice extent were from 2007 to 2015.

    The results of this melting include increased shipping, resource exploration, and adventure tourism. This includes Royal Dutch Shell’s exploratory drilling in the Arctic Ocean in 2012 and 2015, an 118 percent increase in maritime transits in the Bering Strait between 2008 and 2012, and plans for a cruise ship with 1,700 on board to sail next year from Alaska, through the Northwest Passage, to Greenland and New York. And this increase in activity is expected to continue.

    Lack of U.S. Capability


    Coast Guard officials and others have long warned the U.S. government does not have the equipment or infrastructure needed to respond to emergencies, enforce the U.S. exclusive economic zone, or achieve other national objectives in a more heavily traversed Arctic. The Coast Guard’s Arctic Strategy describes the operational challenges to include vast distances, extreme weather, and limited infrastructure. The closest U.S. deep water port to Barrow, Alaska, the main population center, is more than 1,100 miles away in Dutch Harbor and there are only two small commercial airports in the U.S. Arctic at Barrow and Deadhorse, Alaska.

    Other challenges include poor radio propagation, partial satellite coverage, geomagnetic interference with navigation equipment, and limited cellular networks.

    During a trip to the region in September, President Obama responded to both capability shortfalls and a lack of knowledge about the region when he announced a proposal to accelerate the building of a Coast Guard icebreaker, a new ocean charting and coastline mapping program, and additional science efforts.

    This plan is welcomed but likely only a down payment on future U.S. needs. The White House announcement compared Russia’s forty current and eleven planned icebreakers to the two operational polar icebreakers of the United States. A 2011 study of Coast Guard ice breaking requirements found the service requires between six and ten icebreakers to meet U.S. needs for polar access.

    And while breakers are important for access to ice laden waters, they are not the only need. Fort Wainwright, located in Fairbanks, Alaska, and the U.S. military air field closest to the Arctic, is more than five hundred miles from the Barrow. The closest Coast Guard air station is nearly one thousand miles away in Kodiak, Alaska. Gaps in command and control, vessel tracking and other assets will also limit the ability of the United States to provide maritime safety, security and environmental protection in the region. The Obama administration’s National Strategy for the Arctic Region recognizes this when it states that it will “intelligently evolve our Arctic infrastructure and capabilities.”

    Benefits of the Arctic Coast Guard Forum

    Through its on-the-water focus, the new forum will improve the ability of the Coast Guard and other signatories to enable safe and secure maritime activity in the Arctic, particularly given current and medium-term resource gaps. Of note, it also represents an opportunity for the eight Arctic countries to engage in a formal dialogue on security interests that is prohibited by the Arctic Council charter.

    The forum’s emphasis on cooperation promotes American desires to keep the region free from conflict, and the inclusion of Russia is an important detail. The signing of the agreement was reportedly delayed eighteen months due to Canadian objections of Russian aggression in Ukraine.

    Despite concerns with Russian actions in Europe and the Middle East, and the pending claims of Arctic seabed by member nations, the Arctic Coast Guard Forum allows a dialogue with Russia on common issues even while relations are strained elsewhere.

    It's a business dispute. The headline makes it sound like termination by the Russian government. I would like Putin
    to personally go kick some corporate bureaucrat ass. The Duma should pass a law to make sure contractors don't
    engage in blackmail. If they want government money, then they should be prepared to lump it. If they don't like
    the terms, then they can go elsewhere.
