Arctic territories of the Russian Federation are cleared of technological waste

31
The work on cleaning up the technological waste accumulated over the years on the islands of the Arctic sector of Russia is in full swing. Deputy Minister of Defense Dmitry Bulgakov says that large-scale work is being done on Novaya Zemlya and on Wrangel Island. Cleaning the island boiler room from garbage, according to the deputy minister, has already been completed.


Arctic territories of the Russian Federation are cleared of technological waste


The Ministry of Defense reports that about 170 military personnel and several dozen units of special equipment are used for sanitary purposes. The greatest difficulty in the recycling process is caused by rusted fuel barrels that have remained on the Arctic islands since Soviet times. At the same time, the fuel, if it remains in the barrels, is drained into special tanks, and the barrels themselves are compressed with a press before loading onto the ship to save space during transportation.

About 3 thousand tons of scrap metal was shipped to Arkhangelsk, of which about a thousand tons were transported by the ship “Yuri Arshinevsky”. Reports about it "Russian newspaper".

Recall that the Ministry of Defense is implementing a program to restore the infrastructure in a number of Arctic territories. A new military camp has been created on the New Siberian Islands. New objects are being built on Wrangel Island, Cape Schmidt, on the Novaya Zemlya archipelago, etc. The work is carried out in compliance with environmental standards.

      And here I have this question has matured after reading, a little playful! In whatever parts I am, the children from the Azerbaijani diaspora were mainly involved in the problem of metal removal ... Interestingly, did they contract the same with Kotelny? laughing

      But seriously - this is a very big deal - returning the army to the Arctic!

        No, but in fact it is very great that they are cleaning garbage, nature should be protected, we are part of it! When deployed in the Arctic, life there must be so organized that the garbage does not accumulate mountains, it must be recycled or disposed of properly, without harming nature !!!

          The army forever weaned me on the street to litter. Somehow we threw garbage into a ravine all winter, and when the snow came down we forced him to load on trailers and lead to a landfill. The ravine was 50 meters in diameter. The garbage was several meters in depth (accumulated for generations). For several weeks we loaded and exported it. Since then, I throw out any garbage only in the trash or in the trash. People really hoot when, after drinking beer together, for example, everyone throws bottles into the bushes, and I go to the ballot box. At first everyone laughed - like a weirdo, then subordinates began to slowly take an example, and where we expect the delivery became really cleaner. So the people - START YOURSELF! Just bring the bottle or candy wrapper to the ballot box, others will pick it up and you will really see the difference.

      I wouldn’t promise so much. In the 90s, this "forever" quickly ended.
      Of course it’s very good that they remembered the Arctic. But what will happen to the country when Putin retires? The weak point in the manual management of the country is precisely in the change of personality. The history of our country has repeatedly proved this, everything can change at one moment and dramatically.

        You attach too much importance to the personality factor in the story. There is an objective international situation, certain internal processes that cannot be stopped by one person or a handful of leaders. In this regard, I remember the “worship” of Luzhkov by many Muscovites: they said, he turned the capital into a highlight, rebuilt, laundered, “Luzhkovskys” added. But, suppose, in his place would be the same Berezovsky, whose modesty is widely known. Would that make a difference? Money from all over Russia would continue to flow into Moscow, sometimes with people, and it would flourish in the same way.

    Comrades are doing a good thing, nature needs to be protected, let's hope that everything that is possible and possibly cleaned up.
    And in the future they will not clog.
    No wonder they say "PURE NOT WHERE TO CLEAN WHERE, AND WHERE WHERE TO NOT CLEAR"

    there is a law of the northern hemisphere, “The North always beats the south”, the British beat the French and Spaniards, the Swedes literally tormented Germany until the 18th century (until ours landed), the Germans in turn always beat the Austrians, and those Italians, even the American south, lost the north . So, we must climb as far north as possible.

      Northerners, by definition, will put southerners in their place.

      Hyperborea is a legendary northern country, the habitat of the blessed people of Hyperboreans.

      In the ancient written sources of Greece, India, Persia and other countries, there is a description of the peoples who inhabited the territory of polar Russia more than 2,5 thousand years ago.
      The results of recent studies have established that more than 12 thousand years ago, Hyperboreans lived on Novaya Zemlya and adjacent islands.
      Among the ancient states there was also a mysterious country of Hyperboreans, almost unknown and unstudied in our days.

      So we clear the land of our forefathers from garbage !!!

      Yes, nonsense, remember the Roman Empire - Caesar reached Britain. And Southern Egypt defeated Northern. And the northern Scots and Norwegians raked in full from the southern English and Danes, respectively. Teach history comprehensively, and not as conveniently.

      In the historical work of Solovyov (tsarist times) it was noted that the northern Rus (Novgorodians) fought three times with the southern (Kiev) and won the northern three times. The battles were stubborn and bloody, but the north were more persistent.

    Hmm ... It's a good thing, but there is so much iron and wind rolls that you can provide some metallurgical plant for 10 years ahead with raw materials.
    And again, there is a loophole for kickbacks with cuts, given the cost of exporting abandoned pieces of iron and equipment (and there are also a lot of them - GTSki, GTT, etc. all-terrain vehicles) ...

    But the Arctic Ocean is probably the cleanest ocean. Because, there, unlike other oceans, there are fewer MOST civilized and developed countries of the world, with their civilian and warships, which are all dirty. So let it remain.

    I completely agree with you. It is necessary to clean not only the Arctic islands, but also the Kola, White Sea Novaya Zemlya coasts - there will be enough garbage for several years of work. But well done!

    Attracting military personnel to clean up scrap metal is irrational. It was necessary to bring all the homeless people from, for example, Moscow or St. Petersburg, and let them work. What? They are familiar to cold weather, in the cold they do not stink so much, they manage scrap metal at a time. There is nothing to thump in the Arctic, you look and become unaccustomed. Nowhere to run. Over time, they will become local.

    Good deed and most importantly real. Channel "My Planet" showed a very interesting report on cleaning these islands. That's just not a single military man was there, exclusively ordinary civil peasants.

    As always window dressing. I am now at Cape Schmidt, what airfield, what cleaning? !! On the strip of buckets, mastics got drunk, neither technology - nor people. Can you imagine how much garbage is here? Three thousand tons is ridiculous. How oriental built did everyone remember? Now estimate that this is not a cosmodrome and damn far from the authorities.

    They utilize fuel! Stsuka, bring us - only 200 km. At 26 they fly to see, 8 is not enough for them. For construction, the ships were unloaded by helicopters from Vladivostok! Sheep rams with an icebreaker got ahead of time and a month stood in the ice, and money is dripping! But it’s not your own, you can drive helicopters! And after all, some infection reported on the early discharge. Mess.

    Whoever let them go here - the military cleaned up. Large accumulations of barrels were removed; single current barrels are now lying around. So probably they will continue to fall everywhere. Riding them along the tundra in summer - you will drive out all the fertile cover. So a lot of tracks of caterpillars do not disappear for years.
