Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on the foundations of state policy in the Arctic zone until 2035. The document has already entered into force.

As noted in decree, Russia's main national interests in the Arctic are the sovereignty of the territory, ensuring the high quality of the inhabitants of this region, developing a strategic resource base, developing the Northern Sea Route, and protecting the environment in the Arctic zone. The decree noted that it will be necessary to create and legislatively fix mechanisms for solving these problems.

To develop the Arctic, the president instructed to develop science and technology. Scientists must also join in the elaboration of security measures in this territory. The effectiveness of the measures taken should be shown by a decrease in the outflow of the population, a decrease in unemployment, an increase in salaries and the number of jobs, an increase in the gross regional product, an increase in investments, an increase in the production of liquefied natural gas, and an increase in traffic along the Northern Sea Route.
