The Northern coast of Russia is covered with through the most part of the year. People of Russia couldn't stand the situation when they have a 5000 mile long coastline but can't transport anything across it. They thought they can fight the nature for their freedom of movement and have implemented those giant, nuclear-powdered icebreakers. They are completely independent from the fuel and are being powered by small nuclear power-plants on board. Here are some photos of those machines and the coastline across which they swim crushing all this ice and scaring the polar bears.
