What pandemic? US & Royal Navy launch Cold War-style provocation in Russia’s Arctic backyard

Millions of Americans and Britons losing their livelihoods under Covid-19 lockdowns can rejoice that their navies are open for business, staging a show of force on Russia’s doorstep for the first time since the Cold War.

Three guided missile destroyers and a Royal Navy frigate sailed into the Barents Sea on Monday, to “assert freedom of navigation and demonstrate seamless integration among allies,” according to the US 6th Fleet. The announcement was accompanied by hashtags such as #openforbusiness, #Powerforpeace and #strongertogether.

“In these challenging times, it is more important than ever that we maintain our steady drumbeat of operations across the European theater,” Admiral Lisa Franchetti, 6th Fleet commander, said in a statement.
