      Work is in full swing!
      Almost 1,5 thousand workers are involved in the construction of facilities of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation in the Arctic, which is involved in the Special Construction of Russia. This was reported in the department.
      “At present, 1,49 thousand workers are working at the construction sites of the Spetsstroy of Russia in the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation, 337 units of equipment are used. In addition, an additional grouping of 105 highly skilled workers and engineers is arriving on the islands, ”said the Spetsstroy message to TASS today.

      Work is carried out on Alexandra Land, in the village of Rogachevo on Novaya Zemlya, on Sredny Island, on Cape Schmidt, Wrangel Island in Chukotka and on Kotelny Island, which is part of the Novosibirsk Islands
      The department noted that the construction of military towns and airfields is at six points on 13 state contracts. The work is carried out on Alexandra Land (Franz Josef Land archipelago), in the village of Rogachevo on Novaya Zemlya, on Sredny Island (Severnaya Zemlya archipelago), on Cape Schmidt and Wrangel Island in Chukotka, as well as on Kotelny Island, which is part of the Novosibirsk Islands.
      In the first half of this year, nearly 57,7 thousand tons of building materials were delivered to the facilities, and about 24,2 thousand tons of cargo were prepared for shipment at the ports.
      “The work does not stop even during the polar night and is carried out in two or three shifts. The shift of special builders lasts an average of four months. During this period, they are actually “torn off from the mainland,” which can only be reached through special communication channels, ”they said in Spetsstroy.

    Close the sky over the Arctic. The Arctic is ours, hands do not need to be pulled towards it. And the direction through the North Pole was open, from the word at all.

    The island has long been developed. Quote from Wikipedia:

    "The island has the only airfield on Severnaya Zemlya, fuel depots, outbuildings and an active frontier post. Since 1981 for several years there has been a military unit serving the airport. Serving as an aircraft mechanic, Konstantin Rybakov, he wrote the song" Middle Island "Runway begins in the central part of the island immediately after a small hill.Now almost all scientific and tourist expeditions start from Sredniy Island.For example, in the 2005 year, here the first Russian expedition to the North Pole in a balloon (hot air balloon “Svyataya Rus”), led by Russian traveler Valentin Efremov [2] [3], and on December 18 of 2007 the first ever ski transition from North Earth to the North Pole [4 ]. You can get to the island only by special flight from Khatanga, Dikson or Krasnoyarsk airports. [5] Of the permanent residents on the island, there are only border guard workers, at different times from 20 to 30 people. [5]

    The main attraction of the island is the museum of discovery and development of the Severnaya Zemlya archipelago in Ushakov’s house, founded by employees of the Arctic Institute. "

    True, thanks to a group of economic "geniuses" led by Yegoriy Timurovich and who put forward the slogan "The North is not profitable," the rabid followers of the "apologist for a market economy" put in a lot of effort to plunder and destroy everything mastered and built by more than one generation of Russian people!

Aeroflot pilots (local lines) flew along the "corridors" - I know for sure. Air defense officers controlled everything. Us in the 10th grade they took us on an excursion to the military train - as I can imagine, with minus fifty dollars on guard duty - ah.

        He was at a youth training camp from the institute in Polyarny. There they dug up - or blew up - most of the rocks and placed air defense systems right in it. Radars are on a hill. And disguised quite well, and, apart from the radars, nothing is visible. On Severnaya Zemlya, one can do the same - rock mountains are there.
        And, if I’m not mistaken, back in the USSR there were places of deployment of both air defense and RTV.

    All that is presented as new is the previously abandoned old. All of these points were mastered by the air defense units of air defense back in the 70s and 80s of the last century. The RTV divisions were closed at Tiksinsky rtp, Dikson rtbr 14 OA air defense (Novosibirsk) and at Vorkuta and Novaya Zemlya rtp 10 OA air defense (Arkhangelsk). Then came "perestroika" and the North was no longer needed. "Smart" heads in RTV air defense decided, we will conserve units, and then .... "Conservation" was like running away, interrogators, weapons were taken, and the rest was abandoned. They threw everything, fuels and lubricants - 10 tons, food - containers (stew, canned food was taken as much as they could, but they threw flour, sugar, cereals, pasta). Now everything is from the beginning, through sweat, blood and non-normative vocabulary. I have no doubt that we will restore that the North will be ours, that we will again control who flies there, but why, because all this was.

    Dear man, I know what I wrote about. There are ALWAYS frozen. Approximately 1.2m (sometimes smaller, the worm itself dug for fishing). And if there weren’t mines with missiles, then you would not have corresponded with me - well-wishers would have buried us. And so they sit behind a puddle and do not twitch.

      No points needed. Show on the map the location of the Strategic Missile Forces in the tundra. I’ll leave you alone and sprinkle ash on my head - for me it’s not a problem if my opponent is good.
      I’m just from Spetsstroy and I’m wondering how mines for ICBMs are built in permafrost or swamps. I wouldn’t even build a bench there. Well, there are certainly no worms in permafrost. Although you can dig deeper than twenty meters - what you can’t do with a drunk.
      And further!!! For the future. The depth of soil freezing in central Russia is approximately 1,7 meters.

      The bear does not eat iron, he presses it (the can) in the paw, and then licks his paw, he himself saw how he deals with condensed milk. He doesn’t really like stewed meat, but he smells condensed milk through iron.

        I’m talking about polar bears, colleague. They are more brown. And it’s interesting to watch them in nature, not in the zoo. It resembles a beast that way with a month among the ice floes, so then an empty can of stew is a delicacy to him (God forbid, if HER!) Will appear. But if there is a carbine - you can watch.

    [quote = nikcris] No dots needed. Show on the map the location of the Strategic Missile Forces in the tundra. I’ll leave you alone and sprinkle ash on my head - for me it’s not a problem if my opponent is good.
    I’m just from Spetsstroy and I’m wondering how mines for ICBMs are built in permafrost or swamps. I wouldn’t even build a bench there. Well, there are certainly no worms in permafrost. Although you can dig deeper than twenty meters - what you can’t do with a drunk.
    And further!!! For the future. The depth of soil freezing in central Russia is about 1,7 meters. [/ Quot ...

    You said something superfluous, a man from the special building, who did not even build a bench. There (in special constructions of all sorts, specify the number) the talkers constantly eat up. Fifty-two meters - the depth of freezing in the suburbs, so that he knew the troechnik (I didn’t climb to VIKU, and so on). And then approximately, approximately ... And what about the Strategic Missile Forces in the tundra - to take to a place, or what? And about the worms in the tundra - give a shovel, and dig to dig? Why say too much? Divorced on the Internet do not understand what. Flutter and Flutter.
