Russia has formally submitted a revised application to the United Nations for 1.2 million square kilometres of territory in the Arctic. A previous application was rejected in 2002 but Russia claims to have further evidence backing its claim.
“Russia has presented its application to extend its territory on the Arctic continental shelf and it was registered. The work we have done to gather material is extensive,” said the Russian Minister for Natural Resources and the Environment Sergey Donskoy, as quoted by Russia Today.
