The sailors of the Northern Fleet will conduct anti-terrorism exercises at Novaya Zemlya. During the exercise, the coast will be a landing.

The landing will take place on the west coast of the South Island in the Gulf of Rogachev, the press service of the Northern Fleet. The operation will bring together large landing ship "George" and "Kondopoga".

"In the near future in the Gulf of Rogachev will be made reconnaissance and refined areas of unloading equipment and personnel from amphibious assault ships on the coast of Novaya Zemlya," - said in a statement.

Amphibious assault will be a way to stop, ie landing ships will approach close to the coastline and military equipment to personnel come directly to the coast.

The landing on the New Earth will be the last episode of the polar trek, which currently holds the Northern Fleet. During the maneuvers, the Russian military has successfully fulfilled their tasks.

The deployment of military infrastructure in the Arctic is performed to protect Russia's national interests and contributes to maintaining the balance of power in the region.
