#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The dual-use seaports of Tiksi and Dikson on the Northern Sea Route will be reconstructed. This was stated by the commander of the Northern Fleet, admiral Alexander Moiseyev.

According to him, this “will allow the fleet’s forces to quickly respond to possible threats to the navigation safety, to base ships on a permanent basis throughout the entire length of the Northern Sea Route during the summer navigation period, and in the future, with the arrival of new ice-class ships, all year round”.
