"Last night the station found itself in an ice pressure zone; as a result a wave of ice hummocks crashed down on living and service premises. The people have not been hurt, and they have a place to live in and enough food and fuel," Sokolov said.
However, in his words, the station lost its main power source which is necessary for carrying out research. For this reason, the further functioning of the station is inexpedient.
It is expected that the researchers of the station and its equipment will be evacuated within a week, Sokolov said.
At present, there are 12 researchers on the SP-32 station. Earlier it was planned to close it on March 20.
