Russia wants to make the Northern Sea Route alternative to the Suez Canal.
Russia is recommending its Northern Sea Route for intercontinental cargo shipping instead of the Suez Canal.
But some challenges are awaiting this route. Ice coverage in the Arctic Ocean stands as the first trouble.
Secondly, the US can create hindrance in the Bering Strait.
Lastly, there might be an international reaction towards Russia’s attempt to shape the global maritime traffic.
