Russian blogger Sergey went on an ice breaker journey through the Arctic. He says that there is a helicopter on board the vessel. It is a Russian KA-32C copter and he took a trip on it around the ice breaking ship while deep into the ice of the Arctic. Photos are inside.
That’s Sergey on the ground.
And now he is taking photos from the copter. He says that it is interesting to be a part of such a great team undertaking scientific research in the Arctic. He is sure that it’s only Russia who has an atomic ice breaking fleet such as this.

The small dot on the left is the human, this might help to get an idea of the boat’s size.
What is the research he talks about? He says they explore the ice and he promises to talk about it in a separate posting.
This particular vessel is called “Yamal”. Its engines produce seventy-five thousand horsepower, and it is over one hundred and fifty meters (or over four hundred and fifty feet) in length.
