"Air defense units, carrying combat duty in the northernmost point of the Russian Federation, are combat-ready and capable of solving tasks for their intended use," he said. TASS.

According to the fleet commander, a large-scale construction of a modern high-tech military complex is under way on the island, allowing it to accommodate multi-unit units.

“So far, no one has built such projects at such a high latitude, and at the moment the contracting organization that is building on the island is ahead of schedule on almost all objects,” he stressed.

In November last year, units of the air defense division of the Northern Fleet took up combat duty on the island of Alexandra Land. Currently, the personnel of these units are located in a temporary military camp. For combat duty will be organized in the ready-made building on duty shift, which meets all the necessary requirements.

      Previously, they "held" no worse. My father, after Khrushchev’s reduction of the Air Force for several years (1960-1963), flew in Polar Aviation. Wrecked the entire Arctic from about. Victoria to the Bering Strait and from Rudolph Island (FFI) to Amderma, Dikson, Mirny, etc. Ust-Kara, Cape Kamenny, Tiksi, Tareya, Nagurskaya ... Since childhood, familiar names. Life there was in full swing! Ice reconnaissance, oil and gas exploration, providing exploration and scientific stations ("SP" and "North"), installation on ice DAMS (drifting automatic weather stations), convoys, aerial photography, ambulance and mail flights, collection of hunting for professional hunters (furs) and fishermen etc. There were a lot of planes and each one performed sometimes up to 6 - 8 s / v per day! Well, of the Air Force regiments, of course, there was "as much as needed" ... There was a little time! The time of heroes and romantics. The time of economic, scientific and military power of the USSR. Like it or not, for now we are far from reaching those achievements. But the thing must be done!

    Until now, no one has built such projects at such a high latitude.

    Oh, not the first time for us, we are used to it. In fact, a serious application for priorities in the northern hemisphere. I think they started to master on time.

      Of the mammals, there is a polar bear and less often a polar fox. In the waters washing the islands, there are seals, sea hares, harp seals, walruses, narwhals and belugas. The most numerous (26 species) are birds: luricas, chistiks, guillemots, common polka dots, white gull, burgomaster, etc., which form the so-called bird markets in summer.

    On the Gulf of Ob you need to build a base! This is the very middle of Russia, after all!
    At the same time, railway lines and roads to Salekhard from the central part of Russia just need to be built!
    And then we will be covered from all sides!
    ... That it was not necessary (God forbid!), Strangers submarines in the Gulf of Ob to "be surprised" ...)))

    I hope these will not serve there

    Those who commit non-violent crimes of small and medium gravity will be invited to join the army as an alternative to criminal punishment, Izvestia writes.

    The corresponding draft law on amendments to the Criminal Code of Russia and the Federal Law “On Military Duty and Military Service” is being prepared by a member of the State Duma Committee on Constitutional Legislation and State Building Alexey Didenko (LDPR).

    The document says that this alternative can be offered to men aged 18 to 45 years, who committed the crime for the first time.

    "Currently, the personnel of these units are located in a temporary military camp. ... It is expected that the construction of military infrastructure on the island of Alexandra Land will be completed as early as 2016."

    It was similarly on o.Kotelny. The son and his comrades lived for 4 months in an Arctic tent. It is tolerable, of course, but it is advisable to complete complexes like "Northern Clover" before the settlement of the children, and not after. Here we also have to endure “hardships and hardships” until 2016, i.e. all winter! We wish them stamina.
    By the way, living conditions, living quarters, a galley, etc. are currently on the island of Kotelny. great. The son praises very much, and he has been there for more than 5 months.

    Obsolete or not, but about 15 years ago, for such a photo there could be major troubles.
