    The more islands Russia discovers in the Arctic, the more oil reserves they can discover and claim for their own. Surely the charlatan PM Harper of Canada will complain saying it's an infringement of Canada's sovereignty lmao! lol1 lol1 lol1

    Russia should start screaming and shouting any time a NATO plane or ship crosses its EEZ. NATO screams and shouts when Russian planes and ships sail
    through NATO member EEZs even though it is international waters.

    Every scrap of land that can extend Russia's EEZ implies more control over the oil and gas deposits that mostly occur on the Siberian shelf and not on the
    North American side of the Arctic.

    Hopefully moving a large group of people to the arctic regions will promote the development of vehicles and equipment to make living and working there easier... which in turn should make extracting resources easier too.

    Very good point... it would be useful to test technologies for space and indeed submarines in such isolated places.

    Self sufficiency, reusable materials and equipment, and the ability to grow or make their own components for repairs would also be useful.

    Standard units had white coveralls when it snowed... no doubt for arctic units when it doesn't snow they will have light pullovers to deal with the situation.

    They are only just formed but they are based in the arctic and I am sure they will have to do their jobs 24/7 and all year round.

    Summer months should be easier, but they will likely train to operate in all conditions..

    Despite sanctions, both German and Finnish partners continue to build Russia’s Far Eastern shipyard for Arctic oil exploration ships.

    What they're really trying to say is "Russia is not even allowed to have a organized military, even on it's own territory."

    The key part is the reference to Russian "claims" on the Arctic. Thanks to geology, Russia has basically all of the fossil fuel
    deposits in the Artic basin outside of the Beaufort and Alaskan shelf. Even the USGS map of the potential deposits puts
    most of them in Russia's EEZ. So Russia does not need to make any "claims". It is trying to make sure that NATO does
    not grab these resources by force in the near future.

    How would NATO grab them. Well, it could grab Russian islands in the Arctic based on various pretexts. It could also
    just ignore the concept of the EEZ because being a pack of imperial crusaders for NATO, might makes right especially since
    the angels are on their side.

    The U.S. has the absolute advantage as far as naval assets goes (of course Russia has the land advantage which is superior than the naval advantage), however the naval assets needed to dominate the Arctic, the U.S. Navy surely lacks, and that's icebreakers. The U.S. Navy has 4 icebreakers, while Russia has 40, thats exactly 10 times the amount the U.S. Navy has. However with that being said both sides could potentially have more icebreakers in the hands of private industries.
