... correspond to the current situation in the region. The Russian EEZ area getting clear of ice may result in other countries viewing the existing powers of Russia to control navigation on the NSR as less and less legitimate. A decrease in the ice cover in the Arctic may also lead to the fact that traditional routes of the Northern Sea Route, which now pass through the internal sea waters, the territorial sea, and the exclusive economic zone of the Russian Federation, will become more high-latitude.
