ST.PETERSBURG, October 2 (Itar-Tass) — Russia raised its flag of the new North Pole-39 drifting station in the Arctic Ocean on Saturday, Vladimir Sokolov, the head of the Arctic-2011 expedition, reported from the Rossiya nuclear-powered icebreaker.
“All members of the expedition to the North Pole-39, including its head Alexander Ipatov, are in good health. They continue placing property and inventory at the station’s camp,” the institute of the Russian federal service for hydrometeorology and environmental monitoring clarified.
The finding to be made by the PS-39 expedition team will be used as scientific justification for future planning of economically effective and environmentally safe economic activities, including maritime activities, as well as for hydro-meteorological support of navigation on the Northern Sea Route.
