Russian Geographical Society and Northern Fleet to continue joint expedition
#ARCTIC.#SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The research complex expedition of the Northern Fleet and the Russian Geographical Society (RGS) is searching for historical artifacts from the Great Patriotic War and an earlier period in the Arctic. In addition, work is underway to refine navigational charts and seabed topography.
Such large-scale expeditions were not carried out either in Soviet times or after. 12 ships and vessels of the Northern Fleet are involved in the research in the Barents and Kara seas. As a result of the work, 4 warships, 12 ships and 2 aircraft have been found. The location of 20 other ships and vessels has been specified, including Soviet submarines D-3 and K-2.
Earlier, the This Is Taimyr reported that the North Pole scientific ice platform engine had been tested, and in a month the shipbuilders would begin sea trials. We also told that Norilsk divers were looking for a plane that had sunk in Lama half a century ago during a storm.
