The icebreaker has started accompanying ships to the arctic zone to provide for the interests of the Eastern military district.
The icebreaker met the first ships in the Bering sea to lead them to military camps in the arctic region.
The ships carry about 10 tons of building materials and equipment to construct objects of arctic military infrastructure.
In 2015 the second stage of building and finalizing the military infrastructure will take place here. The reconstruction of an airport is also planned for this period.
All the activity will be executed with the respect for environment protection laws.
