- White Sea is also a name of the Aegean Sea
The important port of Arkhangelsk is located on the White Sea. For much of Russia's history this was Russia's main centre of international maritime trade. In the modern era it became an important Soviet naval and submarine base.
The whole of the White Sea is under Russian sovereignty (i.e. considered to be internal waters of Russia).
