Abstract:

The development of vast energetic resources as well as projected warming in Arctic have given rise to a particularly dynamic intensification of economic, political and military processes in the region.
Transport capabilities and potential resource reserves in the Arctic are such that military presence controlling and protecting the national interests of concerned countries becomes an objective reality.
The reasonable transformation of the Arctic region into an important area of global ecology, economics and politics is logically followed by an accelerated militarization. Moreover, the struggle for resources and unique transport capabilities of the polar region make it the central geopolitical arena of the XXI century. Today, right to the Arctic is seen primarily from a position of strength.
