Russia To Build 10 Airfields In The Arctic by 2016


Putin has publicly stated that the Arctic is of great importance and has plans to full militarize it by 2020.

Russia's Arctic-based Northern Fleet is two-thirds of the entire Russian Navy and this year Putin will create a new Arctic command that will coordinate all military activites, including two new, permanent Arctic brigades.

“There is no doubt that Russia's recent steps to militarise the Arctic, coupled with its bellicose behaviour toward its neighbours, makes the Arctic a security concern in a way not thought of only a few years ago,” stated Luke Coffey, an aid to former Defense Secretary Dr Liam Fox.

“We haven’t seen this kind of activity for many years,” stated Colonel Arvid Halvorsen, Mågerø’s base commander. “The missions are also more complex lately.”

What is Putin's end game? Is he really making overtures to nothing?

 

 

While those who have been paying attention to history have long warned of a possible coming ‘Red Dawn-style' Russian invasion with the collapse of America, including Henry Gruver who had a vision of Russian submarines attacking America with nuclear weapons as shared in the 4th video below, Newsweek ventures into the fray by asking in this new story: “What's Putin up to in the Arctic?” while warning us that since no one knows what Putin's end game is, “the worst is a mystery”.

While this new story from the Diplomat warns us that Russia plans on adding 10 new Air Force bases to the Arctic region by 2016, why Russia needs to have 14 military bases in the Arctic region, and are putting more resources into this area than areas now seeing conflicts of war such as Ukraine, remains a mystery.

When asked about the increased attention Russia has been paying to the Arctic regions recently as shared in the several new videos below, Colonel Arvid Halvorsen who is the Mågerø base commander on Oslo, Norway said: “We haven’t seen this kind of activity for many years” and “the missions are also more complex lately,” he tells us, with bigger and bigger groups of bombers being escorted by MiGs, tankers and surveillance aircraft. 

While Newsweek tells us that Moscow isn't threatening the West as they did back in the cold war days with the sheer volume of warplanes running sorties deployed back then, they coincidentally title one section of their story: ‘New Red Dawn?' 

While memories of the Nazi invasion 75 years ago remain fresh in the minds of  Norwegians, a soon to be released political thriller called ‘Occupied' is soon to hit Norwegian TV along with this surreal warning that reminds us of present day events.: 

The weekly drama “follows events in the close future” when Russia has carried out a “silk glove invasion” of Norway “in order to take control of its oil resources,” according to a news release.
