Russia formally stakes claim to North Pole!
[link to www.brisbanetimes.com.au]

Russia has formally staked claim to North Pole and the vast Arctic expanse. This is a sign of the times. Putin wants all the land he can get, and he is doing pretty good doing it.

link:Under a 1982 UN convention, the Law of the Sea, a nation may claim an exclusive economic zone over the continental shelf abutting its shores. If the shelf extends far out to sea, so can the boundaries of the zone. The claim Russia lodged on Tuesday is based on that provision and argues that the shelf extends far north of the Eurasian land mass, out under the planet's northern ice cap.


Russia submitted a similar claim in 2002, but the United Nations rejected it for lack of scientific support. So this time, the Kremlin has offered new evidence collected by its research vessels. It even sent a well-known Arctic explorer, Artur Chilingarov, to take a miniature submarine to the sea floor directly below the North Pole, scoop up a soil sample and plant a Russian flag made of titanium there.

It's rightfully ours.

Did you know that our Armata platform (tanks, mobile artillery, APCs) are built using a special steel that's tailored to the extreme cold of the Arctic?

VLADIMIR PUTIN has made his most audacious land grab bid yet after claiming that Russia owns the NORTH POLE.

Russian officials claim tectonic plate maps show that the disputed territory is part of Russia's "continental character".

However, the claim will spark fears that Putin has further expansionist plans following the annexation of Crimea and his country's meddling in the Ukrainian conflict.

Russia has also become increasingly threatening towards NATO powers in recent months, with the number of excursions by its fighter and bomber planes into allied airspace rocketing

It almost happened there in march 2015, there was a skirmish between US and Soviet forces. A few of our planes went down. Also, a few of our bases went dark. Supposedly a new weapon that the Russians used took out power in the aircraft and bases. Similar to the event in the Black Sea involving one of our naval vessels...

If Russia gets the North Pole, expect Russia to put a few air bases up there. Maybe even equip some with ICBM missiles. Then the fireworks will begin..
