MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Servicemen of the special forces unit of the combined arms army of the Eastern Military District (VVO) stationed in the Trans-Baikal Territory, together with representatives of the Russian Geographical Society, climbed Mount Pallas, located on the Yablonov ridge, at the watershed of the Amur, Lena and Yenisei rivers. The unique event was timed to coincide with the celebration of the World Water Day.
Arriving in a remote area in the west of Transbaikalia on KamAZ trucks and off-road vehicles, the servicemen, along with the rest of the climbers, climbed a mountain 1236 meters above sea level and set the flag of the Russian Geographical Society on top of a unique natural site. All the participants of the action were presented with commemorative signs and certificates.
Also, within the framework of the action, a solemn meeting was held on the subject of the event. Over 100 people took part in the unique action.
For reference: The summit is named in memory of the naturalist and geographer who made a significant contribution to the study of Russia, academician Peter Simone Pallas.
Mount Pallas is also called the “Mountain of the Five Seas”, since the waters of the Yenisei fall into the Kara Sea, the Lena flows into the Laptev Sea, and the Amur estuary is located on the border of two seas at once – the Sea of Okhotsk and the Sea of Japan. The fifth in this list can rightfully be called Baikal, which, although it is a lake, has long received the title “Glorious Sea”.
