The modern military housing area for units of the Eastern Military District «Polar Star» was input to operation on Wrangel Island. Restoration of infrastructure after 22 years of absence of Russian military units there is taking place now. This information was given by the chief of the press-service of the Eastern Military District Alexander Gordeyev.
As he notes, this is the first housing area of such kind, which was input to operation in the Arctic. Another one on Schmidt Cape is on the stage of construction. The military area is built so that it allows military men freely moving between buildings inside the construction, in maximum excluding their stay in the open air in conditions of low temperatures. The complex includes lodging, economic and administrative parts, as the TV and radio company «Zvezda» informs. There is access to the Internet in rooms, where the military men will live.
