vara bungas: papildinot iepriekšējo ziņu netiešie pierādījumi, ka RU uz Arktiku ir lieli plāni. Kam gan vēl būtu vajadzīgs buldozers ar PT ieroču aizsardzību, ja ne konvencionālam karam uz ledus gabala.
[..] Arctic brigades received bulldozers which are fully armored and can sustain grenade explosions, small arms fire and even antitank missiles. The bulldozers will be engaged in roadworks, hardware evacuation under fire and fortifications destruction. The vehicle is fit for operations in the North. Its engine starts up at temperatures of minus 60 degrees Centigrade, the Izvestia daily writes. [..]
un te daži citi sīkumi RU žurnālistu skatījumā:
[..] A recent U.N. environmental report has the Arctic ‘locked in’ for a temperature rise of up to 5 degrees by 2050. In a mere 30 years the Arctic will be an entirely different operational environment altogether.[..]
[..] Arctic hydrocarbon resources are no longer the sole driving force of Kremlin strategy in the High North. Largely due to the prolonged stagnation of the global oil price, the new priority for Russia appears to be control over global transportation through the Arctic.[..]
The wildcard will be Canada, who in 2019 is due to submit its formal Arctic claim for consideration to the UN Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (CLCS). Canada has until now only submitted a partial case for its claim to the Arctic underwater ridge as an extension of the American Continent. Should we expect Putin’s Russia to cede territory?[..]
[..] we expect too much from Trump in thinking that he has a long-term vision for the Arctic[..]
VB: Būs jāpaseko diskusijai CA un tam ko šī valsts var piedāvāt RU apmaiņā pret tās labvēlību ANO un Arktikā.
