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.
This country used to build its powerful air fleet, make jet engines and prepare military specialists. However by the 1980s it was hopelessly left behind in the arms race. Today it has an endless number of defence objects all over the
country. And this is one of them, located right in the capital, an abandoned area where jet engines used to be tested. It looks like a technical museum, but it is not. People have not cared about this place since the 80s.
