    They are hardly going to be able to do very much with only a submarine presence...

    Pentagon warns on risk of Chinese submarines in Arctic

    IMO, they won't be sending their SSBNs there unless the VMF will help to protect them, & communication under ice may be a problem. The US West coast is within range of SLBMs from the SC Sea.

    Who gave the US and its minions ownership of the Arctic Ocean?

    Pompeo the blowhard tried to paint Russia securing its sovereignty over its Arctic waters as some sort of threat to "free shipping".
    Americans are pathological liars and con-artists. They need saps to believe their fake "do gooder" routine so that they can spread
    their imperialism.

    Pompeo needs to first have the US build a few ice breakers before pumping America's "rights" to Russia's EEZ.

    BTW, the North-East passage is through Russia's EEZ since that is the part of the Arctic Ocean that is ice free the longest. Without
    Russian icebreaker support there would be no shipping through the North-East passage. Pompeo can go and shove himself and
    rest of Yankistan up his bottomless anus.

    the same way by democrats Putin was described as a threat to the democracy in Russia. To address to the position of the President of RF in such manner means total disrespect for Russian institutions and intellectual elites it also means retaining the position of the God of some sort from which you view on all others from above.
    I would rather say their talk is meaningless.

    Теплоход «Капитан Данилкин», действующий в интересах Северного флота, доставил более 8,3 тысяч тонн груза на остров Земля Александры архипелага Земля Франца-Иосифа. Большая часть груза — это бетонные плиты для строительства всесезонного аэродрома рядом с самой северной российской военной базой «Арктический трилистник».

    Сегодня судно встало у припая и приступило к разгрузке, которая продлится несколько дней. Нынешний рейс для теплохода «Капитан Данилкин» — третий. В общей сложности он доставил на остров более 25 тысяч тонн стройматериалов за текущую навигацию.

    Завоз стройматериалов, топлива и других полезных грузов для обеспечения объектов Северного флота на архипелаге Земля Франца-Иосифа осуществляется зафрахтованными судами Северного и Мурманского морских пароходств из портов Архангельска и Мурманска.

    Cargo ship kapitan Danilkin bring the third cargo of construction material to Zemlya Franz Joseph island, mostly concrete plates for new airbase.

    American imperialists know that the thaw is in progress and I would say that 2035 is a bit on the pessimistic side. The ice volume
    decline is dramatic:

    Arctic rush - Page 13 BPIOMASIceVolumeAprSepCurrent

    September ice will be totally gone by 2030. And the late winter (maximum) ice volume will be half of what it is today. This
    means that the shipping season without ice-breaker support will be at least 4 months long. All the thick multi-year ice will
    be completely gone by 2030. Progressively the ice thickness will get smaller and smaller so that ice-breaker free travel
    will be possible for most of the year after 2060.

    America with its one functional ice breaker thinks that it will be patrolling Russian EEZ waters. Lunatics. The North-East
    passage is not the same thing as the South China Sea conflict. The ice free waters will always be closest to the Russian
    Arctic coast. So ships will be traveling in Russian territorial waters (not only the EEZ). America has not f*cking business
    in these waters. Russia needs to make sure US warships don't pull any Kerch Strait type stunts.

    Inflammatory and alarmist language. Russia is securing its sovereignty and rights in the Arctic. No NATO MSM ever calls the US Naval operations in the South China
    Sea as "militarizing the South China Sea" or similar BS. Putting up and restoring military bases on its own territory is the definition of defense. The term
    "militarizing" insinuates build up of forces for aggressive action. The clowns who are planning aggressive military action in the Arctic are the USA and its minions.

    True, but the title aside, the article summarizes the latest developments there. Canada been militarizing her Arctic too, & Alaska is as militarized as it ever was, if not more.
