Russian MoD reveals Arctic military base ‘Northern Clover’

Drone footage released on Thursday reveals the first images of the Russian #military camp ‘#NorthernClover,’ located above the #Arctic circle in Yakutia. The camp, based in Kotenly Island, which is part of the New Siberian Islands archipelago, is around 500 km (310 miles) away from the continent. From above, the complex of buildings gives the impression of a clover painted with the colours of the Russian flag.

In Siberia, Chinese demand for tusks fuels ‘mammoth’ rush

Mammoth bones are widespread in Yakutia, an enormous region bordering the Arctic Ocean covered by permafrost, which acts as a giant freezer for prehistoric fauna. But over the last few years this part of the world has experienced something of a mammoth rush: after China banned the import and sale of elephant ivory, its traditional carvers turned to the tusks of the elephants’ long-extinct ancestors.

Ice is a lifeline for the world’s coldest region

Yakutia, in northeastern Siberia, is Russia’s largest region and experiences the planet’s coldest temperatures, but for the inhabitants of this remote place, the cold isn’t an obstacle, it sustains their very lives. Braving -41 degrees Celsius, locals harvest ice to use as their only source of potable water as tap water is only available two and a half months of the year due to freezing pipes. With the cost of digging wells too high because of the thick permafrost that freezes the ground all year, the majority of the villages in Yakutia stick to the old ways of ice picks and frozen eyelashes.
