Unnamed islands have found names


Nameless islands of the Kuril chain began to give names. Two rocky islands, located about two hundred meters from the northeastern part of Shikotan Island, are named after the commander of the Kuril assault operation 1945, Major General Alexei Gnechko, and the famous scientist and TV presenter Sergey Kapitsa. Last weekend, special capsules were laid on these islands, flags of Russia and the Sakhalin Region were installed.

The head of the South Kurile District, Vasily Solomko, said that each of the islands that have acquired the name has an area of ​​approximately 100 square meters, and they rise above the surface of the water 30 meters.

Previously, the residents of Shikotan repeatedly approached the nameless islets on boats and climbed them, but for the first time participants of the official expedition called "Name on the map of Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands" visited these sites. Expedition came to the island of Shikotan on the ship "Igor Farkhutdinov", ITAR-TASS reports.

Samples of land were taken from the islands of Alexey Gnechko and Sergey Kapitsa, which were transferred to the governor of the Sakhalin Region Alexander Khoroshavin. It was on his initiative that the beginning of a new tradition was given - the collection of particles of all the islands of the region in the museum and exhibition complex, which will become a symbol of the unity of the Sakhalin region and the indivisibility of Russian territories.

The first expedition to assign names to the nameless islands of the Kuril chain was about 140 people - scientists, members of the Federation Council, doctors, teachers, miners, journalists of federal and regional media. The next expedition to the nameless islands is planned to be sent in October of this year.

      It is strange that the Japanese Foreign Ministry did not come up with another hysteria. Or did they catch their breath, so they can’t utter words, from the next impudence of these Russians? laughing

        Oh, how I like such clever people ... He brought a proverb (I don’t argue to the point), pushed the slogan and complained about what was done

        “These capsules were left by the expedition as an expression of respect for historical figures. However, other historical names may arise in the process of scientific examination, ”said Vasily Khramushin, chairman of the Sakhalin branch of the Russian Geographical Society, regarding the expedition to the islands of the Kuril Ridge, told the newspaper VZGLYAD. which the Japanese consider disputed territory. Two of them were given Russian names.

        «We, on the contrary, are looking for opportunities for bilateral interaction with Japanese scientists. They cannot come to visit us, they simply are not allowed»On September 6 and 7, the expedition members on boats landed on two islands that are located near the Shikotan island in the South Kuril Islands and have an area of ​​0,286 square meters. km and 0,0307 sq. km. km The third island could not be visited due to weather deterioration, transmitted "Interfax".

        So all the same they EXACTLY work "ahead" hi

          And he answered himself. If in the Russian territorial waters, so whose are they? So who is our wise guy? And the fact that the Japanese consider this their business. hiMs Rice said "Siberia cannot belong to Russia alone" - also a disputed territory?

      It is necessary not only to give the names of the islands (although this is also necessary), but also to master the entire region economically. This is the fabulous land of the comrade, I served in Kamchatka. There was a time.

    What is true is true. It is also true that in the Japs, neuro-convulsive changes in the muzzle of the face have occurred.
