The expedition is led by the deputy commander of the Pacific fleet Alexander Ryabukhin. “In total, about 200 people arrived on the island. In the near future, scientists will begin to study Japanese fortifications that have remained there since World War II, ”the report said.

“Two field camps on the island of Matua were launched by specialists from a joint expedition of the Russian Ministry of Defense and the Russian Geographical Society. Four tents pitched in the coastal zone in the immediate vicinity of the airfield. Before scientists start to study Japanese fortifications, their safety will be checked by experts from the Group of Engineering Intelligence of the TSB, ”Astafyev said.

According to him, “since the war on Matua, three runways have been preserved - the expedition participants will have to assess the condition of the airfield and its restoration.”

            In vain irony. Japan very much wants to get these islands back, the Japanese have many destroyers and about 20 diesel submarines, as well as several hundred fighters.
            Obviously, reinforcement is needed to protect the islands from the air and sea. Let me remind you a year or two ago, Prime Minister Medvedev visited the Kuril Islands, so the Japanese raised such a howl, similar to what Ukraine raised when Putin came to Crimea.
            At least once a year, the Prime Minister of Japan from the international airspace through the porthole inspects the Kuril Islands. Which in itself is pretty.

                There are a lot of Japanese fortifications and rooms hidden in the mountain. The group in the 45th surrendered without a fight and without equipment. They believe that the equipment is underground. Perhaps there is a secret laboratory on the production of chemical weapons. The entrances were blown up before being captured .

        There during the Second World War, there were underground catacombs of several floors. When the Japs surrendered they blew up all the entrances to the catacombs, the entrance was never found. Surprisingly, after surrender, no heavy weapons were found on the island, only the personal small arms that surrendered the garrison. Although according to intelligence there should have been a huge number of different weapons. There were several versions of where it could go. Among the versions were, taken out to sea and flooded, and hid in the catacombs and walled up. Until now, this is one of the mysteries of the Second World War, which they also want to try to solve.

          There is also a hypothesis (American) that there are not simple catacombs. And the secret underground center in which nuclear weapons were developed, and not only were developed, but also the technology for their manufacture was brought to practical implementation, this could lead to a reassessment of the events of World War II. Maybe the US President asked for an islet for rent for a reason? In addition to, or instead of, nuclear weapons, there may well be "biological weapons" (air bombs with filling) in what, and in creating it, the Japanese have succeeded. Who has not seen the doc. film "Conveyor of Death - Detachment 731" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXPP8yFVCNI for especially impressionable ones, you can limit yourself to just viewing information about the detachment on the internet, that's enough for them. Few people know that the Japanese not only conducted experiments on the Chinese, but also on our compatriots, including women and children. They were preparing for a war in Russia. The Japanese stubbornly did not respond to the inquiries of both Soviet and Russian researchers on the island of Matua. Strange deaths and disappearances of the island's military explorers, no idea! By the intensity of the hysterical cry of the Japanese side, and the adequacy of the further actions of the Japanese, with the arrival of our military there, as well as ("specialists of the Russian Geographical Society" good ), we will draw conclusions. Very, very interesting!

            Do you have any idea what nuclear weapons development is? Especially on some island. Nuclear weapons are an entire industry, With mines, mines, huge uranium enrichment enterprises, a bunch of research institutes with entire economic zones that are exclusively for the production of weapons. And lone scientists who develop weapons are only in science fiction.

            900 Russians were used there (tortured), according to one of the detachment’s employees: Russian women are most beautiful at 18–20 years old, strong, the shackles we brought from Japan could not always bind their wrists, our Japanese are much smaller. We tried to use them as efficiently as possible, they were the most valuable Maruto of those that we could find. Here in this photo, the exposition, a Russian woman with her daughter is strangled in a chamber with gas to study asphyxiation. Towards the end of the exposition, there are stands with the Chinese, where they are placed around a small explosion spraying infection. they were crucified on crosses, put on helmets and hung tin plates covering legs and chest from fragments. So they studied the possibility of using biobombs. walls where the Chinese are in the cold, here we have -34 in the city in the winter, so his hands were doused with water and the ice was knocked in parts. studied frostbite. here in harbin in a museum which is located right on the site of this detachment a large museum. you go in, you see all the horrors when you go out the exit is built so that you go from the bottom up in the shade and the passage penetrates the icy draft, when you go out, the light hits your eyes, and the feeling is finally over. the museum is generally well made surprisingly ...

          if you give the islands to the Japanese, and even draw the border as in the figure - then the Japanese will completely block the Pacific Fleet access to the ocean.
          PS, my father served on Iturup in the early 90s on Burevestnik, so there are a lot of things left on the islands from the Japanese - from fur animals and fish farms to airfields and hospitals. they told how in the late 80s hunters killed a connecting rod bear, and when cutting carcasses they found rice in the stomach of an animal. began to search - where did he find the rice? followed in the footsteps. and they found a hole inside the mountain - and there ... the slide is hollowed out from the inside like a walnut, and there is a hospital with food supplies (and rice from there), operating tools, etc. so well camouflaged that only 40 years after the war was found, and then by accident. and such stories on the islands ....

        Since 2007, the FPC has been operating and private investors are being attracted, the program was calculated until 2015, but it was extended to 2022 if I am not mistaken, or until 2018, I forgot. After 2012, they began to invest money there normally, until they constantly disappeared. for 2014, I calculated a shortfall-loss of about 27 million rubles from the billions that were given out (very low theft). private fish farms were built there. berths, helipads, school, kindergarten, kindergarten, hospital, roads, and other infrastructure including housing and communal services. the money goes there, it became especially clear that they would not be given back when the Kremlin began to allocate money for the program more actively after 2014, and when Putin and KO threw the islands into the Internet, the people reacted very negatively, and Putin’s plan to bargain Japanese money and LNG to Japan in exchange for islands failed.

      A concrete runway is a real treasure in such a distance.


      If my memory serves me there, two stripes are located on the cross, which allows you to take off in almost any weather. There the climate is not a gift, it changes in just 10 minutes.

      At the request of the United States to provide one of the islands of the Kuril ridge for rent (only Matua met the criteria presented by them), Joseph Vissarionovich asked for approximately the same territory of the USSR for rent. There were no more appeals.

      Since the 40s, airplanes have become much larger and heavier, therefore the concrete runway that was no longer meets modern requirements.

    A very interesting material about the island of Mutoa here: http://masterok.livejournal.com/1500557.html
    A small paragraph on the airfield: "On the eve of World War II, the Japanese turned Matua - by the way, the Japanese themselves pronounce its name as Matsua-to - into a powerful fortress, into an unsinkable aircraft carrier that controlled the northwest of the Pacific Ocean. There was a large airfield with three long runways. , allowing aircraft to be lifted in almost any wind direction. The strips were heated by thermal waters, and therefore could be used all year round. There is enough reason to believe that there were some secret Japanese facilities on Matua. It is likely that these were laboratories for the development of chemical or bacteriological weapons Submarines of the Third Reich came here, having made an almost round-the-world voyage. The Americans repeatedly tried to destroy airfields and island facilities, having lost a dozen aircraft and at least two submarines in battles.

    Studying the mazes of Matua is not an easy task, at one time it cost the life of more than one researcher. I read about several border guards from the local outpost. At that time, the Americans were very interested in the island, they even asked him for I.V. Stalin, but without result. The Japanese did not export equipment from the island, it is there now. However, they did not find anything. Is there a version that the Japanese developed nuclear weapons on the island? But this is only a version - in general there are many riddles!

    - The leadership of Russia came to the conclusion that it was not wise to send tens of thousands of its soldiers to death, and dealt a nuclear strike on the island of Kunashir. We regret that we had to make such a decision, but we did not see any other way. By the way, we were guided by the precedent that took place in August of the forty-fifth year. The Americans then also decided to keep their guys safe and dropped bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. We want peace with Japan, and therefore, as a sign of goodwill, we return both islands, Kunashir and Iturup, to the possession of Japan. They never before, until the age of forty-five, belonged to Russia. In relation to the rest of the Kuril Islands, we categorically reject all possible claims of the Land of the Rising Sun.

This is a long-term project of the paratrooper Alexander Peterman, who aims to revive the Russian Arctic, to attract there state interest, and again strengthen the borders in the North.

    Friends! Read CAREFULLY the history of this island. I think that in this case we are talking not only about the military component. Too many questions about the Japanese military base, why did Truman want to get this island? Japan does not transmit any documents about this base, even upon official requests. After the fire at the frontier post, there were no people left on the island. It is still uninhabited. But there is evidence that it was not visited by Russian subjects. And it can be very dangerous to build infrastructure there before the base is dealt with. Let's hope that the expedition will not only be able to learn something, but also publish it. Although, it is likely that everything may end "under the bar".

      There is something to restore there .... and even more! And how the Japanese built, believe me, not a couple of today's builders. Their construction, according to Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands, which are one hundred years old, cannot be taken with dynamite. And after the war ended, our troops there were enough and were based, just on the former Japanese bases.

    “... In the Russian Federation according to the Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation of 02.04.2002 No. 210 "On approval of the list of strategic types of minerals, information about which constitutes a state secret", data on stocks, production volumes of rare-earth elements are a state secret.
    China, which is a commodity monopolist in this area, controlling the extraction and processing of more than 90% of the total 17 key rare-earth elements, has decided to drastically reduce the export of strategic resources.
    Extraction of 17 REEs will immediately decline by 72%, including lanthanum, samarium, thulium, terbium, and lutetium. China announced a significant reduction in REE exports at the end of 2009. This caused a serious panic in the developed countries of the world. The leading industrial countries of the European Union have urgently begun to create strategic REE reserves.
    One of the most important elements used in high-tech industries, such as electronics and electrical engineering, the space and aviation industries, as well as in catalysts for cracking and oil reforming, is rhenium. The price of a gram of high-purity rhenium reaches $ 900.
    The Ministry of Natural Resources funded the creation of an experimental installation for the capture of rhenium on the crater of Kudryavy Volcano on Iturup Island. Scientists at the Institute of Mineralogy, Geochemistry and Crystal Chemistry of Rare Elements (IMGE) of the Ministry of Natural Resources and the Russian Academy of Sciences talk about the possibility of organizing rhenium mining on a scale sufficient for industry.
    Metal shortage in the market rhenium Now it is estimated at 10 tons per year. Extremely widely uses rhenium in its electronic industry and Japan, which, time after time, requires the transfer of the Russian Kuril Islands ... "

    Maybe on Matua, besides the Japanese base, there is also a rare earths outlet?
