Belo­rus­sia plans Ant­arc­tic sta­ti­on

Belo­rus­sia wants to add yet ano­t­her one to the alrea­dy impres­si­ve num­ber of sta­ti­ons in the “untouched” wil­der­ness of Ant­arc­ti­ca. Work is plan­ned to com­mence in 2015, and in 2017, the new sta­ti­on is sche­du­led to be lar­ge­ly ope­ra­ti­ve. An agree­ment about a sci­en­ti­fic and logisti­cal coope­ra­ti­on was signed in St. Peters­burg in the pre­sence of the pre­si­dents Putin and Luka­schen­ko.

The new sta­ti­on will be situa­ted at Mount Vechern­ya­ya in Tha­la (Tala) Hills, in End­erby Land, East Ant­arc­ti­ca.

A per­ma­nent pre­sence in Ant­arc­ti­ca is necessa­ry for a coun­try to enjoy full mem­ber rights in the Ant­arc­tic Trea­ty sys­tem.
