The Arctic would become Russia's main strategic resource base

"(...) A strategy paper Mr. Medvedev signed in 2008 said the polar region would become Russia's “main strategic resource base” by 2020. Russia has devised a multivector strategy to achieve this goal. First, it works to restore its military capability in the region to ward off potential threats. Russia is building a new class of nuclear submarines, Borei (Northern Wind) that will be armed with a new long-range missile, Bulava.

40th anniversary of the Cuba crisis "nr. 2."

The Cuban Missile Crisis had come about because the USSR (Russian: СССР) had wanted to assert its parity with the U.S. by deploying missiles to Cuba, just as the U.S. had missiles deployed close to Soviet territory (in Turkey and in Italy) all over Europe. The U.S. didn't see things the same way, and asserted that the Monroe doctrine and general U.S. superiority in nuclear weapons meant that the Soviet Union had no right to put missiles on Cuba.
