    Prime Minister Vladimir Putin visited the Franz Josef Land archipelago, where an expedition from the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Severtsov Institute of Ecology and Evolution are carrying out research on the polar bear population. Together with the scientists, the prime minister fitted a satellite collar on a bear and after that shook the paw with the “master of the Arctic.”
