One reason that Russia has to open the NSR to foreign shipping is simple economics. Maintaining 6 heavy nuclear icebreakers to open the NSR from Kara Sea to Bering Strait on a per ship basis will be reduced the more traffic there is to escort as will the costs of improving the electronic aids to navigation and the search and rescue capability that will need to accompany development of the NSR. Additionally, WTO or not, Russia has import needs and export opportunities as demonstrated by the delivery of heavy equipment to Novvy Port for transshipment by barge inland along the Ob river.
