The communication between various agencies on ensuring the national security in the Arctic will be discussed at the upcoming Army-2018 defense industry forum in Russia’s Vladivostok, the Russian MoD said Tuesday.

“There will be a special focus on the discussion of the interaction between government agencies needed to ensure security in the Arctic region and on the development of the international cooperation to counter the threat of the growing militarization of the Arctic,” the ministry said.

According to the ministry, the forum participants will discuss the geopolitical aspects of the development of the region and the potential developments in the military and political situation in the Arctic.

“To tackle the issue of the international legal regulations of the activities of the states in this region, specialists will study the threats to the national security and the history of their appearance,” the ministry said.

Russia is paying special attention to the nuclear-powered icebreaker ships and polar aviation, with regards to the security in the Arctic, the ministry said.

Why is the TV show “SEAL Team” worth watching?

seal team tv show - Why is the TV show "SEAL Team" worth watching?

Of the three major military dramas broadcasting these days on TV, the SEAL Team is the most sincere.

The TV shows (Wednesdays, 9 ET/PT, ★★½ out of four) works mostly because it’s not reaching beyond its comfort zone. Following a team of U.S. Navy SEALs carrying out covert operations with the aid of the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency), it’s an uncomplicated action series without twists or unnecessary spectacle, at least so far.

TV veteran David Boreanaz (Bones) plays Jason Hayes, the leader of the Tier One Navy SEALs, and he’s an intense and focused guy not unlike the FBI agent he played for so many years on Fox’s series. Jason’s home life has crumbled due to his dedication to his work, and he’s haunted by the death of a teammate on a recent mission. The cast is rounded out by Jessica Paré (Mad Men) as a CIA analyst and Max Thieriot as a young and ambitious soldier trying to make it into the Tier One unit.

The TV drama plays to the strengths of its network, and its star. The missions are simple and paint the soldiers as patriotic and unimpeachably good. In last week’s second episode, Navy SEAL flirted with bigger questions about war and the state of the world, but all in the service of its core characters. The action is sharp, clean and often close up, prioritizing the soldiers’ points of view.

The lack of sensationalism is what makes Navy SEAL a stronger entry into the military genre this fall than NBC’s The Brave and CW’s Valor. The Brave is flashy, while Valor is twisty and ill-conceived, and neither has a cast as engaging.

U.S. Navy SEAL Team is straightforward, but also enjoyable. Sometimes simple works. Take a look:

russian special forces - Elite Russian Special Forces in Astonishing Footage

Special Operations Forces of Russia, or SOF (Russian: Силы специальных операций; ССО, tr. Sily spetsial’nykh operatsii; SSO) are strategic-level special forces under the Special Operations Forces Command (Russian: командование сил специальных операций; KCCO, tr. Komandovanie sil spetsial’nalnykh operatsii; KSSO, or KSO) of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.

Formation of first units for future Special Operations Forces began in 2009 as part of the overall reform of the Russian Armed Forces. Special Operations Forces Command was set up in 2012 and announced in March 2013 by the Chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov. According to Gerasimov, the SOF was designed as a strategic-level asset, whose primary missions would be foreign interventions, including sabotage and anti-terrorism operations. SOF do not belong to any branch of the Russian armed forces and are not to be confused with special forces that until 2010 were under the GRU and whose subsequent subordination appears to be unclear. Russia′s SOF are manned exclusively by professional personnel hired on contract, in commissioned officer positions.
