Russia has already made it easier to access the Northern Sea Route and the country is prepared to make it even more flexible for carriers looking to use the alternative route between Asia and Europe, said Russia's Deputy Minister for Transport, Victor Olersky, at a short press briefing on the first day of the Danish Maritime Forum in Copenhagen.

"It's already become more flexible to use the route, and we intend to continue this process. In the past one had to call in Murmansk when traveling east on the route, now that's no longer necessary, now one can get access to the route online," he said.
