    And no one answered for the fact that he destroyed there in the fierce years of "perestroika" For the fact that platoon and company sent us into oblivion! They will call me to go again. There is a hope that the experience of our work on a potential enemy will not remain forgotten. The weapons have changed, but the Pentagon's tactics have remained the same.

    "At the moment, more than 200 units of equipment and almost a thousand builders are involved in all objects" - isn't it enough for the declared volumes?

    There are very big doubts about Father Wrangel and M. Schmidt ...
    In Anadyr, 2 Mi-8 remained, which carry no more than 3-4 tons of cargo at a time for two, based on the assumption that there are no passengers.
    There was a Mi-26, but for some reason it was driven to Khabarovsk for the winter, at least until March.
    In mid-January, there were no 2 (!!!) months of flights with the import of goods and people to both sites! For various reasons, but mainly due to the gouging of the military!
    Those who have been to those places know that the winter months are the real w # pa! Snowstorms, snowstorms and strong winds! They will fly extremely rarely, if at all!
    I can assume that before the opening of navigation and the arrival of a cargo ship, the situation at the facilities is unlikely to change. That is, it is until the summer!
    And then ... Well, if the hard workers plow in 3 shifts, then maybe something will work out and the MO plan will be fulfilled.
    Although I believe this with difficulty ...

    Let them build! Very soon, the division will begin, and, according to rumors, countries that have not seen it in the Arctic are pretending to be there. Not only America, all sorts of Canada, fellow

    Why such strange forms of buildings? It would be more logical to place and connect geodesic domes with arched transitions - their shape is more streamlined, the wind load is much lower than that of these boxes. The surface area ideally refers to the internal volume, and most importantly - the larger the dome, the stronger.
    Along the way, it is also possible to break in the inhabited lunar program; conditions are very specific, especially on a polar night.

    90% of the military infrastructure in the North is idiotic and criminally destroyed, destroyed, and stolen from the beginning of the 90s.
    That. that created great work. then. quiet heroism ...
    What is it for those who created it to see stupid annihilation?
    And no one is punished !!!
    She even planted with a complete one of the direct winnings. even a stool with a pack. And the complete confiscation of the property of all involved + forced labor to recreate ...
    And then the people will not understand!
