On Friday in Moscow took place the next board Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, which, among others, addressed the issue of formation of military units in the Arctic.




Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu recalled that “this work is carried out within the framework of the implementation of program decrees of the President of Russia 2012 of the year and his instructions following meetings in Sochi, as well as during the implementation of the new Military Doctrine approved in 2014 year, in which the Armed Forces are tasked to ensure national interests in the Arctic zone. "

According to him, “military facilities are actively being built in the archipelagoes of Franz Josef Land, Novaya Zemlya, Severnaya Zemlya and the New Siberian Islands, and the necessary conditions are being created for the vital activities of servicemen.”

“Thus, on the Kotelny Island and the Land of Alexandra, the construction of unique administrative and residential complexes intended for year-round service by military units is being completed. An extensive logistics infrastructure is being formed. At the same time, environmental safety, waste management and the cleaning of the Arctic are of great importance, ”the minister said.

He stressed that "special attention is paid to strengthening the system of control of the air situation in the Arctic."

“For this purpose, in December 2015, the 45th Army of the Air Force and Air Defense of the North was formed fleet. The military units of the radioengineering forces and the anti-aircraft missile regiment equipped with the S-300 Favorit modernized complexes on the Franz Josef Land, Novaya Zemlya, Severnaya Zemlya, Novosibirsk Islands archipelagos entered the alert, ”said Shoigu.

The grouping of troops is being built up, deployed on a permanent basis.

“As a result, the Armed Forces will be able to adequately respond to existing and foreseeable threats, as well as to ensure the protection of national interests in the region,” said the head of department.

    By the way, they planned to deploy the S-400 regiment on Novaya Zemlya. Instead, it was deployed in the suburbs, and then the S-300PM

        Most likely, our northern direction was very poorly protected from enemy aircraft and cruise missiles from US submarines. That is why we are trying to place our complexes away from the coast in order to increase their detection range. While the S-300, but in the future it is possible to put S-500 on duty - and this is protection against ballistic missiles.
        At such extreme temperatures, the equipment should work flawlessly - and this is the task of the designers.

          I agree with you, apparently the reliability of the complex has not been fully tested in the north. Indeed, in theory, it is better to start protecting Moscow at distant approaches ... request

        I agree with you. Not for nothing, our couple of years ago launched remote sensing satellites in the Arctic region.

      These s-300, it seems to me just from near Moscow, he switched to s-400, and here, having formed a new regiment, they gave up the old materiel.

      “The construction of military facilities in the Franz Josef Land archipelagos is actively ongoing, New Earth, Severnaya Zemlya and Novosibirsk islands, the necessary conditions for the life of the military are being created».

      The new land is a former nuclear test site of the USSR, where the majority of nuclear and thermonuclear test charges were detonated, including in the ground and air versions, including the "tsar bomb" with a capacity of 58Mt. Everything is still phonet there. How are they going to deal with this ???

    The land of Franz Joseph-ZFI, I used to have a friend there. The conditions are infernal, the wind is such that it knocks me down. Between the barracks and living quarters the ropes are pulled differently and everything will freeze, and in these conditions the guys serve! Respect!

      And no big deal!

      In Gremikha (p. Ostrovnoy) they also lived with their families (wives, children).
      "Gremikhans" said: "We live in the land of flying dogs."
      Eh, there were good times, however ...

        So what? Wonderful places. In 70 there was a link for the guilty submariners of the SF.
        But nature!
        True, the name was so, "GremiKhan" arrived. I remember her only from childhood.
        By the way, I talked about five or six years ago with the chief financial officer from there, one of the last to leave. It seems that everything was put in order (pain, less, even more likely, everything became residential), but they covered it with the efforts of Feldmebl.
        By the way, this Saturday there is a meeting of submariners in Leningrad. In memory of the lost command of the Pacific Fleet, and the meeting of K-306. And also to put in order the graves of the guys from the "Kursk".

    Defense is good, but whoever defends himself always loses in the end. Offensive weapons are needed more.

    It’s not childish that they took up the Arctic, and look, a new tank division will appear there! Protection of the interests of the country, God forbid, so that they do not forget about the Arctic.

    There are too many people who want to housekeeping in the Arctic, so the actions of the Moscow Region are timely and necessary. Yes, and the seven-way in the future promises to be in demand.

    Fine. My son on Novaya Zemlya served two years and there are civilians, and people have not traveled to the mainland for 25 years, they live. And the families of the officers grew up, nothing. Hard but you can live. Only with potatoes there are problems, and the fish of the red sea are still not looking at her. soldier
