UK To Strengthen Military Presence In Arctic To Oppose Russia, But Russia Is Prepared

British Defense Minister Gavin Williamson said the United Kingdom intends to strengthen the military presence in the Arctic to “protect” NATO’s northern flank from Russia’s actions, according to The Telegraph.

According to the newspaper, more than 1,000 British Navy marines will conduct annual training with Norwegian colleagues as part of a 10-year program, forming a new detachment in the near future, Williamson said during a visit to the military base in Bardufoss, Norway.

The British minister also mentioned that the United Kingdom will send to the Arctic region next year a Poseidon P8 maritime patrol plane to monitor the growing activity of Russian submarines.
