The Russian icebreaker Krasin is heading back for her home port of Vladivostok after accomplishing successfully a mission in the Antarctica
The Krasin led two supply ships to MacMurdo, a U.S. research station on the continent. According to the press service of the Far Eastern Shipping Company, the icebreaker left the South Korean seaport of Pusan yesterday and is expected to arrive in Vladivostok on Saturday. The crew will get a five-day leave, after which will embark on a similar mission in the Sea of Okhotsk - clearing the way for various vessels to Russian eastern seaports. She left the home port for the Antarctica on December 21, 2004 to clear the ice from the way of a tanker and a dry cargo carrier desperate to get to MacMurdo to bring fuel and equipment. The Krasin accomplished the mission and, though the navigation period in the Ross Sea in the Antarctic is short, the yearly supplies of fuel, food, medicine, and equipment were successfully reloaded to the station. The U.S. National Research Fund appreciated the performance of the Russian icebreaker and thanked its crew for its participation in the MacMurdo operation.
