    The perforation was complete sucessful since 2011, why russian people maintain this in complete secretism until this photos? No other information about this scientific expedition exist in the web or the results for the 5D drilling Vostok Lake. I know something about a DNA bachteria founded in the head of the drill before complete the drilling, in 2013, but no more. Now, this year, USA has the same prupose in other subterrean lake in Antartida. This seems to rare to me
