Recently in news

  • India’s engagement with Russia’s Arctic region has been strengthening with India-bound goods constituting the maximum share of cargo handled this year by Murmansk, located about 2,000 km northwest of Moscow.

  • In the first seven months of 2023, Murmansk port, the main northern gateway of Russia and a transshipment hub, handled 8 million tonnes of cargo. Of this, India accounted for 35% (Mostly, it is coal).

  • India was also getting involved in the Northern Sea Route (NSR), which is the shortest shipping route connecting the western part of Eurasia and the Asia-Pacific region. 

  • The record supplies of energy resources for the Indian economy are possible due to such a reliable and safe transport artery as the NSR.

  • But there are challenges in navigating the 5,600-km-long NSR. 

  • The route includes the seas of the Arctic Ocean [Kara, Laptev, East Siberian and Chukchi] which remain icebound during most parts of the year.
