Russia’s Arctic manoeuvres have landed it in hot water with Nato..

Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau hosted Nato secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg in Ottawa this week where the meeting’s discussions centred on Russia.

While election meddling has dominated recent headlines, Nato members have grown increasingly concerned about Russia’s naval activity in the Arctic.

In response, Stoltenberg, flanked by Trudeau, announced that Nato is establishing a new Atlantic Command military headquarters – thought to be somewhere in the US – to protect the alliance’s interests in the region.

Further details are expected at July’s Nato Summit in Brussels. Stoltenberg emphasised the aim is not to isolate Russia but stressed that there must be costs to violating international law and order,

albeit in a “proportionate and measured” way, so as to “keep tensions low in the high north”. Will such a move have any impact on Moscow’s decisions? That’s far from certain but Stoltenberg also warned that Russia has “underestimated” Nato’s resolve and unity.
