US afraid of Russian military's activity in the Arctic

The US Department of State claimed that America is afraid of Russian military's activity in the Arctic.

The US State Department spokesman Mark Toner claimed on 31 August that it should be discussed within the cooperation with other countries of the region.

Pravda.Ru reported that Russia has taken to more active exploration of its Northern territories for the last year, including hydrocarbon extraction and development of the Northern Sea Route, which is to become an alternative to traditional routes from Europe to Asia.

Russia intents to defend its interests with a range of measures, including those of military nature. In 2014 President Putin claimed that a single system of vessels and new age submarines should be created in the Russian part of the Arctic.
