The United States and Russia compete in the Arctic, however, the probability of conflict escalation in the fighting is extremely small. This was stated by acting Deputy Minister of defense for political Affairs James Anderson. Speaking on Tuesday at a hearing of a Subcommittee of the Senate Committee of Congress on the armed forces, Anderson said that although Russia and the United States are candidates for the leading positions in the Arctic region in the near term, the probability of collision between the two countries is very small.
Earlier in Washington, not once said the “aggression” of Russia in the Arctic, but it is acknowledged that currently in the region remains “precarious balance of forces” supported by Russia and the United States. However, the Pentagon expressed fears that Russia could turn the Arctic into a platform “for attacks on the United States.” Also, the us military fear that the current situation in the Arctic will directly or indirectly restrict the ability of the US redeployment of its forces and will have a negative impact on the strategic objectives of the US in the confrontation with Russia and China. The US defense Department call “to protect their interests in the Arctic, to strengthen relations with allies and actively spend in the region of military exercises”.
