In Kamchatka, nuclear submarines were blocked by ice
A huge mass of ice formed as a result of persistent severe frosts
/NOVOSTIVL/ In Kamchatka, due to severe frosts, which have lasted for a week, ice froze at the base of nuclear submarines of the Pacific Fleet. Icebreakers came to the rescue, according to the information support department of the press service of the Pacific Fleet's Eastern Military District.
Ice masses more than 60 centimeters thick have blocked the possibility of navigation in the water area. An icebreaker and tugs of a detachment of auxiliary vessels of the Pacific Fleet of troops and forces in northeastern Russia chipped ice over an area of more than 40 square kilometers in Avacha Bay, including in the area of the Skalisty-Bezymyanny line of capes.
According to the Pacific Fleet, in order to ensure safe navigation, if necessary, the vessels of the auxiliary fleet will make more than 100 exits by the end of winter.
