On the edge of the Barents Sea, he was met by an icebreaker "Captain Dranitsyn." For the construction of military infrastructure on the island of the Middle Archipelago, Severnaya Zemlya in the port of Arkhangelsk is receiving cargo the motor ship Vasily Golovin. Upon completion of loading, he will take a course to the Barents Sea.
