MOSCOW, November 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Although the risks of terrorism in the Arctic are not yet high, they should not be overlooked, particularly in light of vast danger to the regional economy such acts might pose, Andrei Zagorsky, head of the department for disarmament and conflict settlement of the Center for International Security at Institute of World Economy and International Relations (IMEMO) of the Russian Academy of Sciences, told a news conference on problems of security in the Arctic on Thursday.
“These risks are unevenly spread and are largely concentrated in the busiest parts of the region, in the most intensive areas of navigation, the Barents and the Norwegian seas,” Zagorsky said. “Because of climate conditions, the challenges in the Russian and Canadian parts of the Arctic are not large,” he said.
One of the ways of reacting to possible danger is the return of border guards and setting up coast guard forces in the Russian zone, the expert said.
