Russia is also planning to reopen Russkaya Station (WAP RUS-12)
About $4.6 million to be invested in Russkaya Station in Antarctica by 2021. The Russian Antarctic Expedition has obtained about 300 million rubles for the purpose. The decision to reopen the station was made mostly at the initiative of the space corporation Roscosmos. Russkaya Station (WAP RUS-12) was set up in the 1970s. Starting from 1980 it operated as a seasonal field base. Budget constraints forced its suspension in 1990.
For a long time the Russian Antarctic Expedition pressed for its reactivation. A group of researchers visited it in 2008 to install distance monitoring equipment.
