«Northern Fleet» will receive the status of a military district
Combined Strategic Command "Northern Fleet" will receive the status of a military administrative unit which is equal to a military district by December. It was reported by the Ministry of Defense.
It is noted that the Republic of Komi, the Nenets Autonomous District, the Arkhangelsk and Murmansk regions will be the zones of responsibility of the Northern Fleet.
Since 2014 Combined Strategic Command was positioned as a tool to protect the interests of Russia in the Arctic and it also included land units - motorized rifle brigades and even the 45th Army of the Air Force.
Experts believe that such organizational structure, which until quite recently was considered experimental, has proven its effectiveness.
