The site is most suitable for conducting exercises. Officers of the special unit conduct combat firing from special weapons with optical, night and thermal imaging sights. This expedition for us is interesting and informative in that we have the opportunity to observe the clear, harmonious work of professionals, and we participate in it. Photo and video are for business use only.
Six fighters are not the most frightening dimensions, two Heroes of Russia. They say quietly and calmly.
Hug your loved ones and take care of yourself …
Unfortunately, due to the low bandwidth of the local Internet, we do not have the opportunity to throw off photo and video materials, which we collected enough. During my stay in the village, I met with representatives of the administration, border guards and our countrymen. It was a surprise to learn that at one of Dixon’s enterprises, 25 war veterans (!) Have been working since recently. According to IA Arktika-Info (http://www.arctic-info.ru): The population of the village of Dixon on the Taimyr Peninsula will increase by 3 thousand people. The decision was made in the framework of the development of a large coal deposit on the peninsula. The Taimyr coal basin is one of the largest coal deposits on the planet. According to experts, coal reserves of various categories here are about 10 billion tons.

27 March. 21.00. 280 km have passed for the day. We must have time to cross the Yenisei to the icebreaker.
If we compare the rivers of Russia, the Yenisei is in second place by the area of the basin after the Ob. In length, it ranks fifth in the world after the Amazon, the Nile, the Yangtze and the Mississippi. The river on the map crosses our country from the south to the north: camels live in the upper reaches, and in the lower reaches you can meet polar bears and reindeers.
