      Rumor has it that they will build the base of the Pacific Fleet. God grant.

        and the Sanitary and Epidemiological Laboratory. ”

        This is understandable. There was a Japanese bacteriological laboratory on the island. In the process, they disinfect what was not completed in Soviet times. Looks like a good base conceived ours. It is very pleasing. God help the guys!

          There underground structures were not examined at all, the Japanese filled up everything, and then only the riflemen surrendered at the same time, and there, they say, they had equipment, and in general a lot of things, they didn’t find anything.
          It is noteworthy that the expedition went there after a meeting between Putin and Shinzo Abe, they probably want to dig out some byak and poke a Japanese face in it.
          At the 4th minute, the Japanese reconnaissance aircraft:

            This is a welcome message. And about the restoration of monuments to our fallen military, and about the inspection of the island for the future of the Russian military base. Especially in the current conditions of confrontation between the Russian Federation and China with the United States.
            However, it must be remembered, although the article and the film do not say so that on the island of Matua, Japan could contain not only CHEMICAL weapons, but also BACTERIOLIGIC weapons. For it was the production of bacteriological weapons by Japan for the leadership of Japan - the BIGGEST (!) Secret during WWII from the world community as the GREATEST WAR CRIME against humanity, for the disclosure of which the Japanese servicemen were supposed to have a DEATH PENALTY - and untimely even after the WWII ended. Detachment 731 was created by order of the Japanese Emperor - and he is also, in theory, a war criminal. Therefore, all employees of the "Detachment 731", which conducted not only biological experiments on humans, but also the production of bacteria in the amount of tens and hundreds of kg. per day for the creation of the biological weapon itself, not only they signed an obligation to NON-DISCLOSURE all of this, but somewhere, after all, these weapons should have been stored! And this Kuril island of Matua is very suitable for this.
            According to testimony at a trial in Khabarovsk, the commander of the Kwantung Army, General Otsuzo Yamada, "Detachment 731" was organized to train a bacteriologist. wars against the Soviet Union, as well as against the Mongolian People's Republic, China and other states. The judicial investigation also proved that in Detachment 731, on living people, whom the Japanese called logs among themselves, not Japanese (Chinese, Russians, Mongols, Koreans, captured by the gendarmerie or intelligence agencies of the Kwantung Army), other cruel and painful experiments that were not directly related to the preparation of bacteriological warfare.
            Some military doctors of the detachment subsequently became famous surgeons performing unique operations thanks to the experience gained in Detachment 731.
            If we take into account that the USA also used some results of experiments on people after WWII by hiding some Japanese military doctors of “Detachment 731”, who were war criminals with the results of their research, then many of the results of operating biological weapons of Detachment 731 and the weapon itself may well be stored (and most likely, this is the case) in Japanese bunkers with littered entrances to Matua Island from WWII, which is still of interest to Japan and behind their backs the USA.

          The island was completely closed. A couple of local "expeditions" visited there after 2001 when the outpost burned down. There were no other civilians on the island officially.
          IMHO both the base and the "bacteriological weapon" are a smoke screen. In Soviet times, under the supervision of the military, they were looking for something completely different.
          Of the very interesting - a grotto in the rock for German boats. Why did they go almost around the world?
          The Germans had their own chemical weapons.
          It is also interesting - why Truman requested this island from Stalin for an American base.
          The colonel who commanded the garrison is a member of the imperial family ...
          The Soviet version of Japanese claims to the islands is US pressure. Either demand for yourself (us) an island, or we will take Okinawa for good. It seems like because of the deep sea passage for the exit of Soviet nuclear boats into the ocean underwater.
          In February, Shoigu announced an "interesting expedition", and in May, "against Obama's will," the Japanese prime minister arrived in Sochi with a "new approach" to the Kuril Islands.
          Coincidence?

        An air base is possible, but for ships and boats there is about. Simushir. There are no natural shelters from the sea on Matua, except for a small island from the ocean.

          Not only.
          “The main goal of the expedition expedition is to study the possibilities of promising basing the forces of the Pacific Fleet.

    The island of Matua has a unique GDP. It is heated by thermal water from the volcano. So it was not for nothing that this island was "in the interest".
    Well, memory is sacred.

      Our education would have understood that! And more time would be devoted to historical facts not based on film scenarios.
      A lot of today's teachers have already received education under new programs. Sami and half do not know about the heroic past of the Russian people.
      And on the Internet, in carats so far, the names of the islands of the Lesser Kuril Ridge are written in Japanese characters.

    It's time, everything is right ....
    but the question remains: why is Matua? there is no bay, old buildings, moves- ?, runway-? pillboxes, who are you going to stop now? .. and a living volcano will spray, smoke, or even shake, in the center of the ridge, it’s not alone ... maybe like a quick time base? there must be another powerful argument ... maybe someone knows?

      Yes, the airfield jump from power resuscitate. To monitor the space in the ocean, it is possible to deploy an anti-submarine squadron, reconnaissance aircraft, AWACS, fuel storage, just an alternate aerodrome for various contingencies.

      It does not represent more military value. If suddenly the Japanese climb to the South Kuril Islands, it can be very useful. From the point of view of the anchorage - except to patrol the water area, and fight foreign poachers.

    Matua Island is very interesting in terms of the mysteries associated with the Japanese "wunderwaffe" of the Second World War. The fact is that the laboratories for research in the field of obtaining a certain "superweapon" produced by the Japanese, by the way, with the involvement of German developments in this area, were concentrated on Matua. In addition, it is believed that the Japanese hid archives, valuables and gold in the tunnels of this island. The story with the "avalanche" in which our border guards allegedly died is also one of the mysteries, since their death is just an "official" version, they say that the cause of their death was something else.

    And they won't find anything. As before. The disadvantage of all previous expeditions and this last one in particular is that they are not complex and are carried out at an amateurish level. For full-size surveys, there is not a need for a handful of amateur enthusiasts from the "geographical society" reinforced by 2 sappers, but several hundred professionals in sapper activities with powerful geophysical equipment, with heavy loosening-trenching and tunneling equipment, with mining tunneling and mining explosives works, etc.
