It is the Soviet era Fortified Position Unit. Lots and lots of heavy weapons etc.

Thank you Simon. I did wonder if that might be the case.

Just what the Northern Territories needed, more Russian heavy weapons.

Not conducive to the reaching of any kind of understanding between Putin and Abe in various ways.

I'm surprised that the coastal artillery system "Bereg" isn't also deployed there as well.  That's one weapon system I never see mentioned much these days.

Defensive heavy weapons. Let's face it, there is no way the Russians are ever going to give those islands back.

Abe will probably spend the rest of his life traveling to Moscow to that end. Another visit is scheduled for September.

 

The recent cancellation of foreign minister level meetings between Japan and Russia in Bangkok do not bode well for it.

 

The number of times Abe has needed to raise the subject of it is becoming farcial in various ways.
