The X Big Arctic Expedition has finished. Following order of Emergency Minister Vladimir Puchkov, rescuers coordinated the expedition and helped to ensure safety of the participants.
On 19 April, an Emergency Ministry’s plane delivered 19 participants of the Matvei Shparo’s 10th youth skiing expedition to Spitsbergen Island.
School students from Moscow subjugated the North Pole. Seven of them skied 110 km (the length of 1 degree of latitude), while the others stayed at the Borneo polar station to conduct scientific experiments on 8 subjects.
Today, the teenagers got back into Moscow aboard a Sukhoi Superjet 100 owned by the Emergency Ministry.
