    Maybe you can explain what is so "breaking" in the notion that Russia tries to establish a more robust presence in the Arctic waters - especially in the context of global warming melting the ice, which in the past made it more difficult to sail there?

Port services are another asset. I suspect Russia will turn a profit from re-opening the base, although I do recall it being a big submarine base. Putin demonstrated, when he snatched the Russian Petro from the claws of Exxon/Mobil and JPMorganChase and made Russia the largest oil exporter in the world and putting the Russian budget in surplus, that he understood capitalism and corporatism. That is what really causes most of the bad press in the USA because he outsmarted and outmaneuvered top USA corporations. Screwed up their plans to have a Euro energy monopoly. I expect Canada to develop an Artic port and have an argument with the USA over territorial rights. Bah, humbug, ain't that Global Warming just a leftie myth? When big money invests in Artic development, it ain't a myth.
    Man you've got that one PEGGED!

    Hot air, may be...but it was most definitely expensive 'hot air'.

    I know that it's hard to understand online sarcasm but...wow.
    Dude, every reasonable country tries to invest in its future, and protect its own interests, especially when new opportunities arise due to external factors such as climate change...there was/is nothing special or "breaking" about it.
