        the greenpeaces will soon scream - the bears from the noise run to Canada and eat peaceful Canadians. "The Russians have violated the balance of nature. Let's save the bears! All to fight the Kremlin's policy!"

      If it’s not a secret, why exactly Alexandra Island was chosen for the base. The archipelago is big.

    A useful thing! From Engels for the "turn to drive" a lot of fuel is necessary. That would not drive refuelers-intermediate base. hi

    Well done! Still on Novaya Zemlya to reconstruct the strip, but in Talag to lengthen. Lakhta, it seems, will never be restored, and they have been silent about Savvaty for several years.

        Another question: now is there such a term as Polar Aviation? Some of the relatives of the older generation (unfortunately, mostly calm now) have become role models in life ...

    you forgot - there weren’t such refueling in the air during WWII. and the flight range of modern aviation is far from the same, that is, it makes no sense to make new recreation centers for pilots, but control points are needed!
    ps supply them accordingly
