Today with growing processes of globalization geopolitical and economic role of Arctic region in the world is also constantly growing. The Arctic region is becoming the center of building a new system of global and regional security, which also contributes to the growing interest of States in the development of this region, and leads to the expansion of active economic activity.The increasing development of the Arctic raises concerns among States about the preservation of its fragile Arctic ecosystems. According to the results of a detailed diagnostic analysis of the current state and forecast of possible environmental changes in the Arctic region radioactive pollution and deterioration of surface and underground water quality in the coastal territories of Arctic were identified as priority environmental problems.
In my work, I would like to talk about the current state of the Arctic region (Russia), as well as about international projects to combat radioactive pollution, and promising areas of cooperation in this area. I also want to show that even in the current crisis in Russia's relations with the West, international cooperation in the field of environmental protection and research on the main causes of environmental challenges continues today in the Arctic region.
