The famous Russian lone traveler Fyodor Konyukhov, on his first expedition to the North Pole, took a lifebuoy in the form of a talisman from the large anti-submarine ship of the Northern Fleet “Admiral Kharlamov”.

The circle was one of the exhibits of the exhibition entitled “PQ – QP. The Secret Mission of Admiral Kharlamov “dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the beginning of the supply of military equipment to the USSR under the Lend-Lease program during the Great Patriotic War. The exhibition was opened on the atomic icebreaker “50 Let Pobedy” of the state corporation “Rosatom”. On it were presented an admiral’s tunic, a cap, a set of command compasses, one of the two preserved business cards of Admiral Nikolai Kharlamov, as well as rare archival materials that were not previously presented and kept in the personal collection of the descendants of the Soviet naval commander and were until recently classified as “top secret” photo and video archives

The expedition dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the allied Arctic convoys started from Murmansk on 11 July. The icebreaker “50 Let Pobedy” delivered Fyodor Konyukhov to the North Pole region. There, the traveler broke a micro-polar station and remained alone on the ice floe, where he will stay for two weeks. During this time, the ice floe can drift up to 100 km from the geographic point of the North Pole.

During his expedition, Fedor Konyukhov will study the intensity of ice melting, the routes of their drift, and also intends to analyze the water in the Arctic Ocean for the presence of microplastics.
