Restoration of Russia's military infrastructure in the Arctic: airfields waiting

52
The work on the arrangement of the once actively exploited Arctic objects is in full swing. This gives rise to declare a full-scale return of Russia to the Arctic, or rather, to that part of it, which was historically considered to be Russian. As they say, no one is going to claim someone else’s claim, but to defend one’s own is today one of the most important tasks for the modern Russian state.


The return to the Arctic, or rather, the beginning of this return is not only associated with the growing danger that a certain circle of states and supranational entities may try to arrange provocative geopolitical fuss around these territories, but also that the Arctic is gaining more and more weight with from the point of view of the service of freight traffic going from Asia to Europe and back. Russia is going to show that it is ready to defend its regional interests and offer its services (services of the Northern Sea Route) to accelerate and increase the volume of freight traffic.

The term "provocative fuss" is not mentioned by chance. The trick of Greenpeace on the Prirazlomnaya platform is still widely known. So that the next pseudo-defenders of nature did not have a desire to continue their provocative activities in relation to Russian energy (and other) projects, the “greens” with “Arctic Sunrise” decided to more closely introduce them to Russian legislation. For this “familiarization”, they chose the most intelligible way - to bring official charges under various articles of the Criminal Code of Russia.

Recently, three participants of the so-called “environmental action” Greenpeace at Prirazlomnaya were charged. The captain of the "greenpeed" icebreaker Peter Wilcox, Canadian activist Alexander Paul, as well as Ukrainian citizen Ruslan Yakushev are accused of hooliganism. According to the article 213 n. 2 (hooliganism committed by a group of persons in a preliminary conspiracy) they face up to seven years in prison.

It should be noted here that the accusatory article was originally different - piracy. And for piracy under Russian law, it threatens to 15 years in prison. The re-qualification occurred because the Greenpeace “activists” eventually failed to capture the platform. In general, the Russian border guards in a peculiar way helped the pseudo-ecologists, in time removing those from the platform and sending along with the icebreaker to Murmansk. If the Greenpeace members settled on Prirazlomnaya for a long time, then the article “Piracy” would have been fixed in the matter as the main one.

Greenpeace trick in this whole arctic stories It looks like probing the official Russian reaction. Feel, got on the tinsel, they realized that the reaction is more than serious. It can only mean that with time provocative methods applied from the outside can be improved. So that such improvement does not come as a surprise, the authorities of the country decided to actively think about control over the Russian Arctic.

In this regard, in addition to the restoration of the Temp airport on the New Siberian Islands, which the Military Observice has already published material about not so long ago, the runway on Novaya Zemlya is being modernized.

Restoration of Russia's military infrastructure in the Arctic: airfields waiting

Works on the Novosibirsk Islands


The runway on Novaya Zemlya, according to the latest data, after modernization measures is fully ready to receive various transport and military aircraft. We are talking about a modernized strip of the Rogachevo airfield (Amderma-2). The double name of this airfield speaks of a dual purpose. It was used not only as a platform for receiving and sending civilian aircrafts serving the polar settlements (Belushya Guba and Rogachevo) with a total population (in 2013 year) about 2400 people, but also for military needs.


At the airport Rogachevo (Novaya Zemlya)


If we talk about the history of the airfield, then it should be noted that in the 1972 year on the “Amderme-2” the guard fighter regiment with interceptors Yak-28П took up combat duty. These aircraft in the 1987 year began to replace the Su-27.
The presence of interceptors on Novaya Zemlya was by no means accidental. The fact is that it was here that the so-called "700 Object" was located. This is the USSR nuclear test site, which in the entire history of its existence has "seen" more than 130-nuclear explosions. It was on the “700 Object” 52 a year ago - October 30 1961 of the year - tests of AN602 - the famous “Kuzka's mother” - the most powerful explosive device developed by mankind in the entire history of its existence. “Kuzkina Mother” (aka “Tsar Bomb”) was dropped on the Sukhoi Nos training ground on Novaya Zemlya by Tu-95В (crew: Andrey Durnovtsev, Ivan Tick and Valentin Brui) from a height of over 10 thousand meters. The 57-58 megaton explosion occurred at an altitude of about 4 km above the target. The Tu-95B, which conducted the bombing, returned to the Olenya airbase (Kola Peninsula) in a shabby condition, despite the fact that before the explosion, he managed to fly away from the target at a distance of more than 35 kilometers. This is not the only important event that occurred at the site. Other samples of nuclear charges were tested here, both in the air and in the ground, surface and underwater versions. The landfill on Novaya Zemlya has a rich history.



Next year, the testing ground will celebrate its 60 anniversary. Its official name today is the Central Polygon of the Russian Federation, and it submits to the 12 General Directorate of the Ministry of Defense - the 12 th Glaucus.

By the way, it is with this proving ground that one of the first acquaintances of our state is connected with the same Greenpeace organization, let's say, at a new time. In the 1990 year, after Mikhail Gorbachev turned information about nuclear tests on Novaya Zemlya into publicly available, and after the fighter-interceptors began to be removed from combat duty on the archipelago, the “greens” immediately approached. They advocated that nuclear testing be finally terminated. The tests, indeed, stopped.

Official reports today suggest that nuclear testing is not being carried out at the test site, but measures to improve the storage of nuclear ammunition are carried out systematically.

A few days ago, Russian publications came out with the information that fighter-interceptors would appear again on Novaya Zemlya. We are talking about aircraft MiG-31. Some time after the appearance of such messages in the Russian press, representatives of the main military department denied such information. However, to the question of exactly what purpose the full modernization of Amderma-2 is being carried out, no clear answers were received. In principle, refutation words from representatives of the Ministry of Defense can be understood. Even if Moscow is going to return fighter-interceptors to Novaya Zemlya, then it’s unreasonable to reveal the cards in advance.

On the other hand, there is a program that deals with ensuring the security of the Northern Sea Route mentioned in the material, which can gain strategic weight over time. In this regard, the creation of a developed infrastructure on Novaya Zemlya and the New Siberian Islands also fits into a certain outline.

In addition to the restoration of “Tempo” and the modernization of “Amderma-2”, there are also talks about the commissioning of a unique object in the Franz Josef Land archipelago. This is about the ice airfield on Graeme Bell Island - the most northern airfield of Russia. About the re-entry of the airfield, said the representative of the Ministry of Defense, General Igor Makushev.
After the appearance of information about the “re-entry” of the ice airfield at Graham-Bella, people who, until recently, were trying to preserve military facilities in the archipelago, expressed that the Defense Ministry was cunning and that the term “re-preservation” was definitely not appropriate. The fact is that the airfield, together with other military objects on Franz Josef Land, was not conserved at all, but simply abandoned along with the remaining equipment.


What remains of the Graeme Bell airfield


That is, in fact, there is no airfield on Graham-Bella now. That is why the runway and infrastructure here should not be “re-opened”, but rebuilt almost from scratch. Although it’s not so much in terms as it is, for what specific purposes is the restoration of all these objects being carried out, and is Russia ready to stake out its rightful place in the Arctic region? Let's hope that the goals are clear, and the work will be carried out as defined in departmental plans.

                Inspectors of Rospotrebnadzor refused to draw up an act of inspection of Roshen factories, which contradicts the norms of Russian legislation. The legislative sphere of the Russian Federation requires that such an act be drawn up in two copies, one of which is transmitted to the representative of the company being inspected immediately after completion of the inspection, and also contains comments from the company on the results of the audit.

                The Rospotrebnadzor commission inspected the Ukrainian enterprises of the Roshen Confectionery Corporation on October 21-25. They visited the Kiev and Vinnitsa confectioneries and the distribution center of the corporation in Yagotin. Upon completion of the inspection, inspectors, referring to the poor health of the team leader, refused to communicate and discuss with the Ukrainian side the results of the audit, the signing of the audit report and urgently left Ukraine.

                Well, about that ... I recommend looking at the current Volga, for example. and you can compare:
                - my father bought a Volga from a friend sometime in 1974, after Egypt. I went myself (a lot!). gave it to my son, my classmate. he also traveled a lot (!). sometime in 2003 the car was sold;
                - in 2006, my brother bought a Volga. fell for the "Chrysler" engine and other "improvements". well ... at the moment it somehow runs somewhere, but the Soviet-made "Volga" for 30 years of operation looked MUCH better than this "miracle" of the Russian car industry even after 4 years of operation.

        I don’t know what experience you have had in serving in the CA, but somewhere from the 50s, long-range aviation until the collapse of the USSR had airfields there and military personnel served there on a rotational basis. In the 70s, a whole VA (VGK) was created purely for the north (I know the number but don’t indicate it will suddenly be banned). Therefore, families did not suffer much. I emphasize the word SPECIALLY, because sailors, sometimes for a longer period, the family at the base was left, going to sea on the database. Pilots in YES did not receive 1st grade until they served in ice airfields. soldier

      Yes, all this is half measures. In recent years, freight traffic along the Northern Sea Route has already increased significantly, tenfold. And this is just the beginning. So, we need to create infrastructure. Otherwise, you can pump a flash, and lose only the maintenance of these cargo flows a lot of money.

      Activities in the Arctic should not be limited only to an increase in military presence.

    All this in time! If only a couple of years - and any shushera would begin to pillar their plots in the Arctic, and it would work out with Russia: Whoever did not have time was late.
    All this Greenpeace fuss is a cover for probing Russia's reaction. The only pity is that again, looking back at the "international" opinion, in this case at the protest of SOME Scandinavians, the article was re-qualified from "piracy" to "hooliganism". No h.r.t. on myself - "hooliganism" !!! This "bunch of hooligans" was able to finance the flight to our platform and its assault !!! Marasmus!!!
    So I think that in this case our authorities shouldn't have treated these "greens" so softly.

But in connection with the introduction of the anti-corruption law, there is still hope that the funds allocated for the development of the Arctic will not be successfully cut and aimed at raising the American economy.

    Good time is coming.
    5 years ago, they didn’t do airplanes, but those that didn’t fly the same way with ships, helicopters, armored cars.
    And then 2 weeks at the end of summer: a million tons of cargo and a new airport in the far North.

    The events on the destruction of the naval radio navigation systems in the Arctic region are still fresh "Mnars-75", destruction of the RSDN-5 long-range radio navigation station in Taimylyr, etc. Life has shown that the pearl of Russia - the Arctic needs to be protected. And for this, you do not need to regret the funds - they will pay off handsomely. Again, a nuclear testing ground. Minatom refused to support him, but the Ministry of Defense did not need him either. But now this, thank God, is history! Russia is returning to its home in the Arctic

    The captain of the Greenpeace icebreaker Peter Wilcox, Canadian activist Alexander Paul, as well as a citizen of Ukraine Ruslan Yakushev are accused of hooliganism. According to Article 213 p. 2 (hooliganism committed by a group of persons by prior conspiracy) they face up to seven years in prison.
    It should be noted here that the indictment was originally different - piracy. And for piracy under Russian laws, it faces up to 15 years in prison. The re-qualification occurred because Greenpeace “activists” eventually failed to capture the platform.

    What the hell??? fool The Criminal Code provides for such a qualifying feature as “attempted crime”. The qualification "attempt" is just applied in the event that "failed". That is, if the crime was not brought to an end for reasons beyond the control of the guilty party. Not allowed to seize with a purposeful attempt! What the fuck is hooliganism? request They were equated with family rowdy, now they will give, for excuses, a couple of years probation and sent to "serve the sentence" at the place of residence. For, in order to get a real seven for a "hooligan", you have to beat and mutilate a man's heels in public until he loses his pulse, smash or shoot a couple of cafes with a shotgun, for example. am As always - about. negative

    Well done that restore their former power. And these Greenpeople needed to be really planted for a long time so that they knew their place. For some reason, the United States does not ask anyone even when the war begins. And Russia should report what it is doing on its land. They went in the ass.

    An incomprehensible retraining, because the seizure failed due to the counteraction of the border guards, therefore it should qualify as an attempt on piracy, and not banal hooliganism! And this is a completely different calico!

    And what is all about PISovtsev, these guys just work out the money of customers. And as you know, * who pays, he orders the music ** Above, I gave a Graham Bell fact. Look at the map where it is and at the same time lay out a diagram of air corridors from Europe and England through the pole to America. An interesting picture will be highlighted. Previously, the band was used even by IL-76, including

    Interceptors are good, but first and foremost - BOMBERS. The specifics of the region (ice, wandering ice fields, etc.) make it almost impossible to quickly respond to changing circumstances. With the icebreaker you can’t get much ahead ... Therefore, the basis of the Arctic defense is aviation. It is necessary to have a sufficient number of aerodromes (at least jump aerodromes) and enough aircraft adapted to the war in the Arctic. No other way!

    I have already posted in a similar topic that there are three main reasons to return and be in the Arctic:

    - shelf control
    - control of the Northern Sea Route
    - Air defense cover for a probable ICBM strike from the United States

    Psychedelic America has every chance to begin to solve its accumulating problems through a full-blown military conflict - so if we want peace, we need to prepare, and immediately - it’s good that this is already happening (on the other hand, of course, this is very bad - because it may indicate the inevitability of the development of a militaristic scenario)

    That's right! The main thing is not to admit to this work, unfortunately, the prolific "effective managers..perov" who only know how to "optimize" and steer cash flows, of course, not forgetting about themselves, loved ones!

    The Arctic, as well as Siberia itself, is asking for the hands of Russia .. Just take everything I will not regret ..! After all, we abandoned everything there in 90 = e .. Now, as it were, we did not have to fight for our Arctic, restoring bases .. airfields, etc. (maybe "kuzkin mother" once again bang to flee from our Arctic .. ??? ) bully

    He served on the NZ in 81-83. Yes, not the Arbat military district, harsh weather and natural conditions, but they lived quite decently, and the relations between people in these conditions were warmer, perhaps, than on the "mainland". And now to restore everything ... Eh, rulers!

        The principle is the same as that of the "Arctic", only that it was one-story, and it was already burning, damn it. like a sparkler! I still remember the inscription on the wall of the barracks block: "Warrior, remember!" Arctic "costs 20 million, burns for 16 minutes!" An inspiring and optimistic "slogan".
