Russian President Vladimir Putin is expanding the country's militarisation mission in the Arctic. According to the TASS news agency, Moscow has moved its newest nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine Generalissimo Suvorov to a temporary base for the Northern Fleet in the Arctic. The strategic submarine of the Russian Borei-class was officially included into the Russian navy in 2022 and carries up to 16 nuclear-tipped Russian Bulava missiles, each capable of carrying more than one nuclear warhead. Meanwhile, two Russian strategic bombers also flew over the Arctic Ocean. The scaled militarisation has triggered fears of a new war zone: the Arctic.
