Abstract
The Arctic region witnessed a lot of geopolitical activism and contestation during
2008 to 2020. These activities have had direct impact on the Arctic Policy of
the Russian Federation. The present article analyses the changes in the Russian
Arctic policy, including security policy and their evolution and development
during this period of changed economic, political and strategic environment. To
identify and appreciate the changes in the policy, a comparative analysis of the
Russian strategic planning documents towards Arctic has been carried out. It
reveals a transformation of approach that ensures economic development and
security of critical energy facilities situated in the region. The study also analyses
the achievement of the goals set by the ‘Basic Principles of Russian Federation
State Policy in the Arctic to 2020’ adopted in 2008 and describes the conditions
for achieving the strategic goals in the Russian Arctic zone.
