Two teenagers from Moscow Region have become groundbreakers after their newly-discovered island in the Arctic was confirmed by the navy hydrographic service. The islands were pinpointed using satellite imagery.
President Vladimir Putin stressed that Russia’s Arctic fleet is and will remain the strongest in the world, as the country has been strengthening the military infrastructure in the region to secure its interests there.
