The article assesses the military-political and terrorist situation in the Arctic. It is noted that in the Arctic region Russia will have to deal not only with individual countries (US, Canada, Norway and Denmark), but also with a united front of NATO states, as well as with modern challenges and security threats (illegal migration, piracy, drug trafficking, terrorism, etc.). The author analyses the activities undertaken in the Arctic by the Ministry of defence of the Russian Federation and the Border Service of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation to strengthen the country's defensive capabilities, to protect the borders and to counter terrorism. In accordance with the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation from 26 of December 2015, No. 664 "On Measures for Improving Government Management in the Sphere of Counteracting Terrorism", a number of operational headquarters have been set up in the country, including in Murmansk. In May 2015, at a meeting of the Federal Operational Headquarters of the National Anti-terrorism Committee, decisions were taken, aimed at developing additional measures to ensure security and protection from terrorism of facilities engaged in economic activity in the maritime space of the Russian Federation, including the Arctic.
