Russia to reorganize military forces in the Arctic | Barentsobserver

Northern Northern Fleet-United Strategic Command (Severny Flot-Obedinyonnoye Strategicheskoye Komandovaniye, SF-OSK) will be established already in 2014, a source says to ITAR-TASS.

According to the source, the establishment of the new formation is a result of the need to defend Russia’s national interests in the Arctic, including providing security for its naval and civilian vessels and protection of its natural resources.

The strategic command will have status of a military district, although it will not be called so officially. In that way, the number of military districts in Russia will not change – they will still be four.
