Between 31 May and 1 June 1916 the Battle of Jutland between Germany and England took place, which
was the main naval battle of the First World War and cost the lives of over 8000 people. Control
of the Skagerrak was one of the reasons that led to the German invasion of Denmark and Norway
during World War II. From a geopolitical point of view, it is the main exit point for Russia's Baltic fleet, a forced
passage to exit into the Atlantic Ocean; it is therefore of fundamental importance to NATO.
The alternative would in fact be to exploit the 190 km of navigable waters from the Kola coast
to the pack, to then descend along the Norwegian Sea and overcome the caudine forks of the GIUK passage.
