In April, the Russian government unveiled plans to spend around 1.3 trillion rubles ($44 billion) on economic and social projects in the Arctic before 2020. According to the Russian Ministry for Regional Development, the projects will include the creation of new transportation corridors and the development of new hydrocarbon deposits and social infrastructure in the region. The private sector is expected to contribute some 80 billion rubles ($2.7 billion) to the projects.

Keep others off their territory? Hunter Gatherer instincts?
Why do those in charge immediately think of War Games?
Sit and talk comes first and if no agreement reached then obviously they fight
What is Politics? To sit and talk about things, not to set Strategic Positions and get ready to fight....
Who are you referring to US or Russia? The topic is about Russia and the Naval Infrastructure.
Why are we still in that kind of Roman Invasion frame of mind?
Agree however wish it worked that way in reality. Even the animals have territories. What makes you think humans will let go of their territories?
Resource was here before Man and its Free or supposed to be anyway... it's over-population which is causing lack of Resource!
