        The time has come to equip the islands so that the Japanese dad in Tokyo will make sure that the Kuriles belong to the Russian Federation. At the same time, we will listen to the next howls on the topic of "northern territories".

          Here you read, read about this island and expedition .. It seems that they only walk on the surface there, and what is known about this island, about underground factories and that the entrances to them were blown up, is it of no interest to anyone? a bulldozer, an excavator, and would have been printed for a long time. or are they heavier than a shovel? I do not think that this is all classified. Or wait for the news?)

        They were completely equipped everywhere, not only in the Kuril Islands and Sakhalin. Manchurian URs are also kept a lot of secrets. My friend was a commander of an engineering battalion who destroyed the Japanese URs of Manchuria after 1945 and until 1951, so he said that the complete system was never disclosed defenses of URs and they destroyed only what they could find. I didn’t mention Sakhalyan UR, opposite Blagoveshchensk in China, it has a lot of secrets. The same secrets are in Shumsha and other Kuril Islands including Matua. Yes, wherever the Japanese settled on st.

      There, on Matua, there may be something that is dangerous to open. Biological and chemical weapons, and according to the data, they are there exactly, in what state they are now, is unknown. 3-4 days ago, on "Russia 24" there was a short report, there were guys in the KIH, and in the OZK (in full attire) with the appropriate instruments, inside the buildings (where you can get) they work. The secret entrance to the bunker, from the side of the sea, through which supplies were supposedly delivered, was found, but it is blocked.

        Moreover, along with the general issues related to the island, it is necessary to deal with "decontamination" in order to prevent the entry of this very weapon or its components into the environment.

      Well, if you are already very impatient, you will have to confine yourself for the first time to the book of Rothmann and Palmer "Japanese fortifications on the Pacific Islands 1941-1945". The principles of building fortifications are the same, but the filling of the hill may be different. Okinawans, which were stormed by the Yankees. The fortifications of the Kuriles are not described there.

          about another island of course - in the Baltic
          there were also fortifications (including underground) and a secret parking for submarines
          a western agent was sent there after the war - I don’t remember why
          and when he realized that he was caught, he managed to turn on the self-destruction button of the fortifications

Neither the Moscow Region, nor the Russian Geographical Society will pull this expedition back, but I will not say for sure, these data are from one of the forums.

    All practically expeditions of Russia are captain-military. Why did our ships not disappear? Unlike the Portuguese, the Spaniards .. On board at least a platoon of Marines. And as a rule, deuces went, a ship with doctors of all kinds of sciences, and a frigate with guns. No one wanted to mess with the Russians. Moreover - the bayonet done. But they were really afraid of Russian in a bayonet battle. Well, or a saber.

          What is the point there, something to place if we can’t cover it? In Soviet times, there were no stationary air defense systems on these islands. Yes, and there were small garrisons. Mostly border guards and radar posts. Now one station has remained in Simushira. But basically everything is in this state. As far as I can tell, this is the 37-mm anti-aircraft machine arr. 1939

Mostly border guards and radar posts. Now one station has remained in Simushira. But basically everything is in this state. As far as I can tell, this is the 37-mm anti-aircraft machine arr. 1939

    What are you going to cover all this from? A battery of anti-ship missiles and short-range air defense systems are enough for this. But so that the United States does not take this route to attack the Far East, long-range air defense is needed there, at the same time there will be a no-fly zone in the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of ​​Okhotsk can be locked.

    An inventory of our lands has gone.
    At the western borders, the process is up and running,
    now it's time to strengthen the borders on the eastern frontiers.
    Indeed, on these islands it is not necessary to keep garrisons.
    You can put stand-alone devices and installations,
    which require only periodic maintenance.
    The main thing is to show the Japanese that this is our land.

    Ohhh, the Yankees woke up, they got me angry. They do not like that Russia is developing a new positional area to protect its territory from Yankofascism.

    the island as a base is very interesting, in fact, the doors and control of the Sea of ​​Okhotsk up to 800 km into the ocean, if a good bay for ship parking is possible. That’s why you need to think how to settle in. Judging by the fact that the Japanese showed nothing grandiose and serious, the limited resources The defense network made it a tough nut. At the expense of weapons of mass destruction it is very unlikely. Only if they wanted to launch porcelain bombs from it. And then in the future. If you really make thermal heat supply, then perhaps it’s worth equipping Am. Over time, it will not be expensive. WFP is very good all the more so, what is the state and cost of bringing it to mind? It’s a pity that all this will be quite expensive. Yes, you can’t refuse a tourist destination, when calling cruise ships tour routes.
