"Unique residential complexes 'Arctic Trefoil' and 'Northern Shamrock,' are being built on the Kotelny and Alexandra Land islands. The decree of their readiness is reaching 100 percent," Evmenov said, noting that the Arctic region is one of priorities for the Northern Fleet.
The construction of modern stationing system of the fleet is underway, he added, stressing that it was very important to preserve the unique northern nature when building the fleet's units.
"That is why, our activity in the Arctic is in line with the environmental security. This concerns not only the construction works, but military training in this region as well," Evmenov outlined.
Russia is currently the world’s most advanced nation in developing Arctic military infrastructure, according to the US Defense Department assessment made earlier in July.
