The White Sea-Baltic channel is not a simple ship canal connecting the White Sea with Onega Lake. And it is also not an important transport object which is giving exit from the White Sea to The Baltic and The Caspian and the southern seas. It is the whole history, the beginning of the great camp buildings of
the Soviet period. During its building not only water storage ponds and sluices have appeared - even new words were added in slangy speech. In the history of the channel three periods are singled out: its building (1930-s), the restoration after the war (50-s) and the present.
