Sergey Shoigu with the inspection on Alexandra Land

31
Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu inspected the progress of construction work on Alexandra Land. This island is part of the Franz Josef Land archipelago. According to the official representative of the main defense department of the Russian Federation, Major-General Igor Konashenkov, the Minister of Defense examined the housing and administrative complex under construction, called the “Arctic Trefoil”. The total area of ​​the military complex will be more than 14 thousand square meters.


It must be recalled that this is a complex of buildings and structures of military infrastructure connected to each other by special transitions. Such a scheme of the complex will allow servicemen to move from one segment to another, without going out into the street, which is of particular importance in the conditions of the Far North.

Of statements Igor Konashenkov:
The head of the military department heard reports from the Northern Command fleet and construction organizations, checked the quality of construction work at the facilities of the administrative-residential complex, power unit and water treatment facilities.


The builders of the complex told Sergey Shoigu that the construction is carried out using modern materials and technologies, which allows to achieve high energy efficiency.



Simultaneously with the construction work on the construction of a modern military camp, work is underway to clean up the island from debris that has remained on Franz Josef Land since the Soviet era. The first is the removal of barrels in which fuel remains. Empty barrels are compressed with a press and are also transported by ship to the mainland for recycling.

The press service of the Defense Ministry of the Russian Federation reports that Sergei Shoigu inspected the course of the performance of combat duty missions by military personnel of the anti-aircraft missile defense units of the Federation Council of the Russian Federation.

      To the noise of crushed rusty barrels, a lot of interesting things can be done in the Arctic. It is interesting that our weapons and equipment can be used in these conditions without alterations. But to imagine the weapons systems of the States does not work

          Housing and administrative complex, called the "Arctic Shamrock."


          The Russian military is proud to say that Trefoil is currently the world's only capital construction facility being built at 80 degrees north latitude.

              Willingly I believe. For the rules on branding towels, the contents of nightstands and the presence of threads are remembered even by senior officers.

              And then in special matters, everyone strives to give them photon reflectors ... moreover, unpainted. smile

        I watched the dok.film on Russia-24, everything is fine there. They work day and night. Impressed by the construction. And the living conditions showed that they say you can bring families and children to bring on vacation. Here are just white bears roaming around.

          Well, it's not for nothing that a colleague makes transitions:

    It is time for the archipelago to return the old name given by the Pomors.

    Yesterday I watched on TV a program about this "Shamrock" - an impressive structure, looks great from space. If everything is built as it should, the Americans will gnaw their elbows to the bone, there will be a radar station covering the entire Arctic to Alaska and Canada, an airfield for a heavy military aviation is being built, in short, the base will be AWESOME!

      Looked too. "Ice Citadel" is called, look who has not seen. The base is just class. Similar military camps are now being built throughout the Arctic: Franz Josef Land, Novaya Zemlya, Severnaya Zemlya, Novosibirsk Islands, Wrangel and Cape Schmidt. Plus airfields. Plus radar station. Plus SAM, etc.

    I watched the movie. Strong, great construction. Such construction is very difficult. But we need Arctic bases very much. Heroism in its purest form. But when all the plans are built, it will be better, but still extreme.

      How tired of reading about "pure heraizm". Well, when will we just learn how to fucking merikos purely systematically, according to drawings, without "heroism", without human sacrifice, as a consequence of someone's carelessness, to build, erect, erect, achieve?

        I do not know where you lived and served, but in my life I managed to get cold enough. Therefore, I know a little about what I am writing about. There really is not a resort, but survival. Moreover, there are 800 of them there. Also bears "come to eat"

    Pancake ! Crowd, what are you happy about? ! It's nice to sit on the couch. I served there. A separate polar radio-technical air defense regiment, military unit YuYa 03219. In Soviet times, there were points (companies) of our regiment with a radar station. These are the Graham Bell and Nagurskaya Islands. What is a point? These are three or four barracks, a power station and a radar station. Everything ! In the spring the military icebreaker "Baikal" (I think) came, unloaded coal, solarium, food, zip. Any construction only with the help of helicopters! Evacuation, for example, of a sick person, only by helicopter to Rogachi, there is an airfield and a hospital (is there a hospital in Beluzhka? How many kilometers are there? A couple of thousand? And this is nothing that you can fly not every week or even a month? The temperature on the islands is up to - 56 * S. And Rogachi in winter the breeze is such that the airplanes are blown off the runway and the visibility is 0. I do not scare. I served there, unlike you, the sofa ones. I’m not saying that this does not need to be built. The question is the price of construction! I don’t Can airplanes start at -50 * C and below and fly and land at zero visibility? What will they warm up with? Diesel or mini nuclear power plants? They can poke me with their nose, and there is construction equipment ... Starts in October and does not jam until April Is it possible to build something at -40-50 * C? The cemetery is supposed to be at the place of service? Something like that.
