Victory Day celebrations aboard Admiral Vladimirsky

Leading crewman Andrei Dubinin performs the song "Katyusha" for the crew as they celebrate the 75th anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany in World War Two, on board the Admiral Vladimirsky vessel in the Indian Ocean off the coast of the South African Republic. On December 2019 the research vessel Admiral Vladimirsky went on a round-the-world expedition to the shores of Antarctica, dedicated to the 200th anniversary of the continent’s opening by Russian naval sailors on the Vostok and Mirny sloops under the command of Thaddeus Bellingshausen and Mikhail Lazarev, as well as to 250th birth anniversary of Admiral Ivan Kruzenshtern. The aim of the expedition is to conduct complex oceanographic research in the Antarctic region and along the route, determining the location of the island of Peter the Great and studying the parameters of the earth's magnetic field in order to clarify the position of the South Magnetic Pole.
