The Pentagon intends to send a carrier strike group to the Russian borders in the Arctic


The US carrier strike group can approach the Russian borders in the Arctic.

The head of the US Navy announced his intention to send a US carrier strike group to the Arctic this summer. The main reason for this is the need to test the effectiveness of the American military fleet in extreme conditions, since the head of the US Navy himself expressed doubts about whether warships could operate effectively in conditions of extreme cold.

“Ticonderoga-type cruisers were the last ships to use a steam plant to clean the hull of ice. Crews of newer ships have to repel the ice from gun turrets, decks and helipads manually. ”- said Richard Spencer.

Nevertheless, there is information that we are talking about the passage of the American carrier group through the entire Arctic, directly next to the Russian territorial waters, which definitely affects the national interests of the Russian Federation.

Against the background of the statement of the Commander-in-Chief of the US Navy, the Russian senator Franz Klintsevich has already given a tough answer, stressing that any actions by the United States in Artik will lead to appropriate measures.

“The north of Russia in terms of ensuring the security of the country is under our complete control. Moreover, we know in advance what dangers threaten us from there, and all the answers will not keep us waiting. ”- said a member of the Federation Council Committee on Defense and Security.
