"Our interests are concentrated in the Arctic. And of course we should pay more attention to issues of development of the Arctic and the strengthening of our position (there)," Putin told a youth camp outside Moscow, enumerating military and economic plans for Russia's Arctic.

1. This is going to be the next flash point.

 

Watch and see,Canada and U.S. will station troops along the borders of Russian claimed regions of the Arctic. It's all about the Oil and rare earth metals. Now that the Ice Cap has disappeared,Drilling has begun as well as mining. American Oil companies have rigs on the ground and more to follow.
