    Apparently not; they are claiming that a huge part of the arctic is rightfully theirs and plan to drill for oil once the ice melts. A Russian scientific expedition claimed that Russia is the owner of the North Pole because there is underwater geologic features that connect Russia to the arctic. For the last 10 years they have been increasing military presence in the area to discourage other countries from preparing to drill for oil.
