The need for international legal regulation of the continental shelf regime is a natural consequence of the achievements of science and scientific and technological progress. Advances in technology have allowed us to begin effective exploitation of the subsurface resources and riches of the continental shelf. However, today the issue of the rights of Arctic States in the Arctic region, the borders and delimitation of the continental shelf is still acute.
Eight countries have their own borders, continental shelves, and exclusive economic zones in the Arctic: Russia, Canada, the United States, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, and Iceland. The interest of States in these territories is due to the fact that their subsoil contains 83 billion tons of conventional fuel, of which about 80% is accounted for by the Barents and Kara seas, and the probability of developing new deposits is extremely high. Today, there are constant disputes over the Arctic territories.

The Arctic is fraught with enormous wealth, which, of course, includes oil.

The discovery of five new islands, emerging from under the glacier in the Kara Sea, excited the public. However, there are many questions that are not yet answered: what are the practical benefits of their discovery, how will the Arctic coastline change in the future, and what is the expedition doing to confirm the existence of the islands?
In the Kara sea there is an island in the form of an anteater. Its territory is densely filled with fragments of machine parts and rusty barrels of fuel, which remained after the first wave of development of the Arctic territories of 1960-1970. Vilkitsky island was the next point on the map a great journey, and turned into a dump when supplied by the state objectives were met.

THE Arctic Circle may be Santa's home, but it is set to become the world's new disputed territory, with different nations seeking to exploit the region for a range of economic and military purposes.

Russia welcomes foreign partners in the development of the shelf and is preparing to defend their territories. As you know, Canada - Nordic country . The total length of its Arctic coastline is about 162,000 miles , and the area of the Arctic territories it occupies the first place in the world. However, the official Ottawa not averse to expand its sphere of influence in the region .

The Arctic is at a crucial point in its transformation from a relatively isolated region to one where receding ice is enabling increased human access. As climate change and the viability of new energy sources shape the global environment, these shifts will affect our strategic oudook going forward, especially in the Arctic.

The United States military is looking for ways to expand operations in the vast waters of the Arctic as melting ice caps open sea lanes and other nations such as Russia compete for the lucrative oil and gas deposits. But the effort will take money and resources to fill the broad gaps in satellite and communications coverage, add deep-water ports and buy more ships that can withstand the frigid waters or break through the ice.

The United States is calling for greater  cooperation in the Arctic, even as it warns that it will defend its  sovereignty in the face of strengthening international interest in newly  opening shipping lanes and natural resource extraction opportunities as  the region’s ice disappears.For the first time, the United States has  come out with an overarching strategy aimed at guiding its military  response in the Arctic. Openly prompted by concerns over climate change,  officials say the U.S. vision aims at balancing “human and  environmental security” in the region.

China has certainly been busy since it won observer status at the May Arctic Council summit in Kiruna, Sweden. First, Yu Zhengasheng, Chairman of China’s Political Consultative Conference, visited Finland, Sweden and Denmark with an eye to boosting general trade and cooperation, particularly in the Arctic.
