Satellites Show Russia Continuing to Strengthen Arctic Military Presence

Russia is continuing with efforts to strengthen its military presence on the country’s Arctic coastline, new satellite images provided by space technology company Maxar show.

Bombers and MiG31BM jets can be seen to the north of the military base, and a new radar system has been installed near the coast of Alaska. An underground facility believed to be a storage area for high-tech weapons was also visible.
