The Russian Arctic National Park, Arkhangelsk Region, has launched a series of patriotic projects on the eve of the 76th anniversary of Victory Day, said the Ministry of Natural Resources of the Russian Federation.
Thus, a series of meetings with veterans of the Great Patriotic War will be held in the visit-center "Arctic Embassy" in the city of Arkhangelsk. In addition, the official channel of Russia's largest Arctic PA will host the premiere releases of the Arctic Educational Program dedicated to the years of the Great Patriotic War in the Arctic.
“In the Russian Arctic National Park, special attention has always been paid to the patriotic education of the younger generation. Our employees have done a great job of studying archival materials about military operations in the Arctic. Description of the historical and cultural heritage of the Second World War in protected areas and the preservation of cultural heritage sites of the war years on Novaya Zemlya and Franz Josef Land are one of the priority directions in launching the scientific activities of the organization,” said Alexander Kirilov, director of the Russian Arctic National Park.
In 2020 an ecological path was laid to the places of hostilities on Cape Zhelaniya.
In 2021 the national park plans to install information boards for visitors that will tell about the history of the attack on the peaceful polar station Cape Zhelaniya by a German submarine and its heroic defense.
