The commander of the Northern Fleet announced the combat readiness of the most northern air defense base in Russia


"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. However, the island is building the most modern administrative and residential complex of a closed cycle with a total area of ​​more than 14 thousand square meters.

It is expected that the construction of military infrastructure facilities on Alexandra Land will be completed already in 2016.

      Previously, they were not worse. My father, after Khrushchev's reduction of the Air Force, flew for several years (1960-1963) in the Polar Aviation. He furrowed the entire Arctic from about. Victoria to the Bering Strait and from Rudolf Island (FFI) to Amderma, Dikson, Mirny, etc. Ust-Kara, Cape Kamenny, Tiksi, Tareya, Nagurskaya ... Familiar names from childhood. Life was in full swing then! Ice exploration, oil and gas exploration, provision of geological prospecting and scientific stations ("SP" and "Sever"), installation of DAMS on ice (drifting automatic weather stations), escorting convoys, aerial photography, ambulance and postal flights, gathering production of professional hunters (furs) and fishermen, etc. There were a lot of planes and each one sometimes performed up to 6 - 8 s / a per day! Well, the Air Force regiments, of course, were "as many as needed" ... That was the time! The time of heroes and romantics. The time of the economic, scientific and military might of the USSR. Whatever one may say, but for now we are far from those achievements. But the job 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!
    Then we will be covered from all sides!
    ... In order not to have (God forbid!), Alien submarines in the Gulf of Ob "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 deployed in a temporary military camp. ... It is expected that the construction of military infrastructure on the island of Alexandra Land will be completed in 2016."

    It was the same on Kotelny Island. The son and his comrades lived for 4 months in an Arctic tent. It is tolerable, of course, but it is advisable to finish building complexes of the "North Clover" type before the guys move in, not after. Here too we will have to endure "hardships and hardships" until 2016, i.e. all winter! Let's wish them resilience.
    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.
