VLADIVOSTOK, April 15. /TASS/. The second phase of infrastructure development has been launched in the Russian Arctic zone, spokesman for the Eastern Military District Colonel Alexander Gordeyev told TASS on Wednesday. To this end, the Abakan and Igor Ilyinsky ships will deliver from Vladivostok to Cape Schmidt and Wrangel Island about 10 thousand tons of building materials, fuel, foodstuffs and equipment, the official said.
"The second phase of infrastructure development operations in the Russian Arctic zone has begun in the Eastern Military District. The Abakan and Igor Ilyinsky ships, which have departed from Vladivostok seaport will deliver to Cape Schmidt and Wrangel Island about 10,000 tons of cargo, including construction materials, automotive and construction equipment, diesel fuel, food and other cargoes," Gordeyev said.
The vessels will sail about 2,800 nautical miles. In the vicinity of Cape Navarin, the Admiral Makarov icebreaker will help the ships to pass through the ice on the remaining part of the journey.
Eastern Military District units were put on combat duty to protect Russia’s air borders at Cape Otto Schmidt and Wrangel Island on October 1, 2014. Last year, residential modular complexes were built there to ensure life support of the military district servicemen.
