November 28 – December 3: foreign policy goals and Arctic environmental threats
The Russian Federation will do its best to prevent confrontation and military standoffs in the Arctic, according to a concept of the country’s foreign policy. However, West questions whether Russia will stay committed to the international laws if the UN does not satisfy its claim. May we remind you that Russia applied for expansion of its Arctic shelf borders a while ago. The USA leads a “hybrid war” against Russia in the Arctic using its allies, according to Russian experts. They perceive actions of international environmentalists as a part of the “war”. The environmentalists accuse Russian oil companies of polluting the Arctic rivers and threatening existence of both indigenous peoples and the Arctic Circle fauna.
