Russian geologists have determined that an oil-and-gas rich region under the North Pole is connected to Russia via an underwater shelf. The North Pole, therefore, should belong to Russia.
Nevermind there's a treaty recognizing the region as an international zone, or that other scientists doubt the validity of the findidng.
"Frankly I think it's a little bit strange," Sergey Priamikov, the international co-operation director of Russia's Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute in St Petersburg, told the Guardian. "Canada could make exactly the same claim."
That's because the Canadians are sane.
