A water war has ended in the Arctic, the largest expanse of ice on Earth, but a water-hungry Russia is fighting to keep the war raging.
Russia, the country that has fought the war for centuries, says it has enough water to last until the end of the century, and says it will never give up.
Russia’s war-weary people are desperate for fresh water.
A year ago, the Russian government started a water war by building a dam that will deliver up to 50 billion cubic meters of water a year to Siberia and to the Far East.
It will deliver only enough to cover the cost of the dam, but it will leave much of the water unharmed.
The government says the drought is temporary.
But many locals have not stopped fighting.
Last month, they killed one man and wounded three others when a boat carrying the village of Chirikovo broke up in the Barents Sea, where the Russians have built a vast dam to help keep their Arctic sea ice alive.
This summer, Russia’s drought is expected to last about eight years.
Russia says it is working on a plan to restart the war, and Russia’s foreign minister is traveling to the Arctic.
Russia is still building the Arctic-based dam, and the Kremlin has promised a new one will be built soon.
Russia’s war is a major political issue for Russia, which is also in the midst of a civil war in Syria.
But the conflict is now in its third year, and experts say it will take at least 10 years to resolve.
Russia also says its drought is not a war, but is instead a natural disaster caused by climate change.
Last year, the International Ice Core Project said that there was no significant change in the amount of water in the atmosphere over the past 15 years, and that the water level in the ocean is now about half of what it was in 1950.
But scientists say there are more changes in the ice sheet than in the climate.
Last year, climate scientists said there was little difference in the rate of ice melting between the Northern Hemisphere and the Southern Hemisphere, but they also said that climate change has made the ice much more vulnerable to the ravages of the drought.
The war is causing major problems for Russia.
The dam is being built in the same region as the Black Sea, which the Russian state considers its territory.
Russia has been cutting the Black and Southern seas off from the rest of Europe for years.
The drought is a clear signal that the Russians are going to continue their efforts to protect their territory and deny the Russians their claim to the Black.
