A manipulator of the Mir-1 mini-submarine places a Russian state flag at the seabed of Arctic ocean at a depth of 4,261 meters (13,980 feet) in 2007Russia pressed a claim at the United Nations Tuesday for an additional 1.2 million square kilometres (463,000 square miles) of Arctic shelf, an area of escalating international tension. In a submission to back a 2001 claim at the UN Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf, Russia said research showed it had rights over the swathe -- an area the size of South Africa. This would include the North Pole and potentially give Russia access to an estimated 4.9 billion tonnes of hydrocarbons, according to government estimates.
