Breaking the Ice Curtain?

Breaking_the_Ice_Curtain.JPG

Canada and Russia are the geographical giants, spanning most of the circumpolar world. Accordingly, the Arctic is a natural area of focus for the two countries. Although the end of the Cold War seemed to portend a new era of deep cooperation between these two Arctic countries, lingering wariness about geopolitical motives and a mutual lack of knowledge about the other’s slice of the circumpolar world are conspiring to pit Canada and the Russian Federation as Arctic adver­saries. Are Russian and Canadian Arctic policies moving in confron­tational direction? Can efforts at circumpolar cooperation survive the current crisis in Russian-Western relations, or does an era of grow­ing global competition point inherently to heightened conflict in the Arctic?

Breaking_the_Ice_Curtain_-_Russian.jpg

С точки зрения географии, Канада и Россия – два гиганта, занимающие львиную долю территорий Арктики. Неудивительно, что обе страны сосредоточили своё внимание на арктическом регионе. Арктика является важной частью канадской и российской идентичности. Казалось, что после окончания холодной войны для Канады и России наступил этап развития дружеских отношений. Однако сдержанность обеих стран в готовности принять точку зрения другой стороны, а также отсутствие необходимых сведений об арктических стратегиях противоположной стороны, способствуют росту недоверия и ведёт к конфронтации. Насколько различаются арктические курсы двух стран? Смогут ли достигнутые в прошлом успехи в совместном решении арктических вопросов спасти отношения России и Запада от глубокого кризиса? Или эпоха борьбы за глобальное лидерство неизбежно приведёт к новому конфликту в Арктике?
