Under the influence of the ongoing global geopolitical transformations, a powerful catalyst of which was the crisis around Ukraine, the collective West is “raising the stakes” in its desire to achieve “strategic defeat” of Russia. Accordingly, the security situation in Europe is sharply deteriorating, the confrontation zone is expanding and the risks of direct conflict between Russia and NATO are growing.

On February 3, 2022, the Deputy British Ambassador to the Russian Federation Julia Crouch, paid a working visit to St. Petersburg Mining University.
Exactly 10 years ago, on February 5, 2012, Russian scientists from St. Petersburg Mining University and the AARI were the first in the world to penetrate the subglacial Antarctic reservoir - Lake Vostok - and take unique water samples there, isolated from the outside world for millions of years.
June 10, 2021, marked the 90th anniversary of the birth of Boris B. Kudryashov, the legendary “Bur Burych”, a professor at Mining University. As a result of his scientific work, it became possible to drill the world’s deepest hole in the ice of Antarctica, 3769 m deep, and open the subglacial Lake Vostok, which plays an enormous role in the study of climate change in recent millennia.
On January 28, 1820, the Russian expedition led by Thaddeus Bellingshausen and Mikhail Lazarev discovered Antarctica, but its exploration began only 70 years ago. If the names of the discoverers are known to every schoolboy, then not everyone can name the scientists who began the actual study of the new continent.
A discussion on the importance of scientific research in Antarctica for the formation of new knowledge in this area took place in the City on the Neva
