I am writing this blog on an article made by CNBC on the recently built Russia-China oil pipeline. The original article is linked at the bottom. The article is titled
"Russia opens Siberian pipeline to China as Beijing expands its influence in the Arctic"
This pipeline is being built near Belogorsk is Russia. It will stretch a total of 3000 Km to the arctic where Russia has a large resource of oil. It will eventually connect all the way down into Shanghai where China will be able to use the oil. This has some of the western world, especially the United States, a little on their toes because it increases china's control of the arctic slightly and cements Russia's position in the arctic. This article is primarily about control of the arctic as it is a huge area that is relatively unclaimed.
