Military Arctic Objects of the Soviet Time

Since the 1950s there have been built some military objects on the Frantz Josef Land islands including Graham Bell island. They were aimed to protect the polar territories from a possible invasion from the American side. It was an important mission so many samples of new Soviet equipment were brought there for building and testing the objects.

These radar stations standing on the islands of Graham Bell Land were among those objects, they are still in a rather good condition.
