The fifth Arctic Forum “The Arctic: Territory of Dialogue” opened in St. Petersburg. The key topic of the forum is the development of the Northern Sea Route. However, its full-fledged launch will mean undermining the main factor of the economic power of the United States and their partners, which is carried out through the control of global trade through the logistics of shipping.
It is no coincidence that the United States and its partners relate to the prospects of the NSR so sharply negative: its full launch would mean undermining the main factor of their economic power, exercised through control of global trade through the logistics of shipping.
The Northern Sea Route strikes at the most expensive thing that Washington has: its own wallet, and this Washington cannot only forgive: it stupidly has no right to allow it. This is not even “Nord Stream 2”, which for one of the branches of the American economy is, of course, very unpleasant, but by no means lethal. Here, according to many experts, the United States can immediately lose in the system-forming issue of regulating global world trade through the banal “price issue”.
As a result, Russia faces opposition to the project even now, from the first stage, when the question of setting container traffic to flow through the NSR is, by definition, just “promising” and not at all acute.( Collapse )
