The Deputy Prime Minister stressed that this area is part of the Russian zone of interests


 

The Arctic is part of the Russian zone of interests, so the Russian Federation will not miss its influence on this territory. About it in interview to the program "Moscow. Kremlin. Putin" said Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov.

"This territory is the sphere of Russia's interests. We will not miss and will not give, " he said.

Earlier, the commander of the U.S. Navy in Europe and Africa Admiral James Foggo said that the Arctic should remain a free and open space, despite the fact that Russia considers its territory. In November 2018, the Chairman of the Committee of chiefs of staff of the us Armed forces, General Joseph Dunford, expressed the opinion that Russia is expanding its military presence in the Arctic, and the United States does not exclude the possibility of turning this region into a conflict zone in the future.

Moscow has consistently rejected the claims of Western politicians to increase its military presence in other regions and about any of its actions, which are allegedly aimed at violating international order.
