    Kremlin Warns An Arctic War With West

    Kremlin warns of Arctic war with West if the west wouldn't ‘keep out of Russia’s polar backyard’
    The risk of war in the Arctic involving Russia and NATO is rising, a Kremlin commander has claimed. The chilling forecast came from the hawkish head of the Russian Northern Fleet, Vice-Admiral Alexander Moiseev, who warned NATO countries risk war over the Arctic. He pointed to an alleged significant increase in NATO’s presence in polar waters warning how military exercises by Britain and the US along with other Western countries have doubled in five years.

    The news comes as Russian President Vladimir Putin orders the reopening and modernization of military bases along Russia’s 15,000 miles of Arctic coastline. He said: “In the near future, we should expect a further increase in the military presence of the combined armed forces and, as a result, an increase in the likelihood of conflict. “In recent years, the joint armed forces of the alliance’s member states have carried out dozens of exercises in the close proximity of our northern borders.
    War could break out with the West over the Arctic, the head of Russia’s Northern Fleet has warned.
    “The drills were different in size and involved various weaponry, ranging from nuclear submarines, carrier battle groups and other units, including special operations forces.” The northern fleet commander accused the West of seeking to pressure Russia with sanctions and politicize multilateral cooperation in the Arctic.

    “Countries that do not have direct access to the polar regions, more and more actively try to gain access to the resources of the Arctic, [and] its transport communications.” Moiseev claimed, “there are no challenges in the Arctic requiring military solutions, I draw attention to this.” Despite this, he insisted: “The Russian Federation nevertheless considers building up its military potential in the Arctic zone as a necessary measure to counter possible threats and create favorable conditions for protecting national interests.”
