Ratify the Law of the Sea Treaty

In August 2007, a Russian expedition led by its most famous polar explorer, Artur Chilingarov, planted a Russian flag in a capsule on the Arctic seabed directly underneath the North Pole. The Arctic is Russian, Chilingarov bellowed. “We must prove the North Pole is an extension of the Russian coastal shelf.” Indeed, in 2001, the Russian Federation had made a vast territorial claim to almost one-half of the Arctic sea-bed in its submission to a 21-member United Nations scientific body called the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf.
