The policy of sanctions has long ceased to pay for itself, not to mention the notorious isolation of Russia. The explanation is obvious Russia is a world player which simply cannot be ignored in world politics. If we talk about the Arctic, then Russia is the biggest Arctic state, with the largest and most powerful atomic icebreaking fleet in the world. It is no secret that often the European states rent Russian icebreakers to pursue their interests in the Arctic. For example, there are various international research projects for monitoring climate change. There isn t any isolation, not on paper but in real life. The European countries know that if they refuse to cooperate with Russia, they will lose much more. Systematic work is important, and our Western partners understand this. Russia has always supported a comprehensive dialogue.
