      It’s necessary to think not like the Chelyuskinites .... Although I admit that I have never been in those conditions, during the Soviet era I traveled a lot around the country, but mostly it is Central Asia.

      Judging by the way the entire infrastructure is organized at the newly created facilities in the Arctic, such questions should not arise. The time of tents, dugouts and barracks with "remote" latrines is in the past.

    The article would also have a map showing where this island is.
    And this, by the way, the Bering Strait ....
    Well, it would be nice to indicate the control zone of this station for a better understanding.

    Welcome all!

    There would be more such good news.
    Since over the past 25-30 years the deliberate collapse of the army and the military-industrial complex, only in the last 2-4 years are the steps of returning to former points, bases and places of deployment visibleon which the Soviet Army for decades guarded the borders of the motherland.
