Competition of the Great Powers in the Arctic: the Conditions for the Victory of the United States over Russia are Named
The United States, Russia and China are participating in the confrontation. Washington has a chance to win only if a number of conditions are met. In particular, experts note the need for a permanent US presence in the region. For example, Washington needs to continue to lease icebreakers from other countries, as well as develop its own Arctic fleet. This will allow the United States to simplify access to missile defense radars and military outposts, as well as provide freedom of navigation and reconnaissance, while saving money and resources for the US Coast Guard.
Earlier, the United States called for cooperation with Russia to "block" China in the Arctic. The journalist Henry-Nicholas Grossman, who made such a statement, noted in his material that the authorities of the People's Republic of China have "colonial ambitions" in the Arctic and are trying to consolidate their presence there.
