What is the role of the Ukrainians to the discovery of the Southern Continent?
Ukraine’s catch-up to Antarctica’s discovery is the deputy captain (Tadeusz Bellingshausen), that is, Lieutenant-Captain Ivan Zavadovsky, a native of Hadyach, of the Cossack lineage. When Elizabeth received the so-called “Little Russian nobility”.
Still worth mentioning is Anton Omelchenko, a member of the British Antarctic Expedition of 1910-1913 on the Terra Nova barge, headed by Captain Robert Falcon Scott, who set out to “achieve the South Pole in order to honor this grand accomplishment of the new century” Anton Omelchenko is a member of the Royal Geographical Society,
Omelchenko received the award, like other members of the expedition, from the hands of the English Queen. It was a medal honored for the feat of the pioneers of Antarctica, and a lifetime pension. Omelchenko was assigned a lifetime pension, which he received until 1927, until diplomatic relations broke up between the USSR and the United Kingdom.
Onuk – Victor Ivanovich Omelchenko, diesel engineer, participant of the 3rd Ukrainian Antarctic expedition (1998-1999)
Great-grandson is Anton Omelchenko, a mechanic, a participant of the 20th (2015-2016) and 24th (2019-2020) Ukrainian Antarctic expeditions in the Antarctica of the Soviet era. Now, with good humor and good humor, it will also be possible to touch on this time of time, where Ukrainians, wintering warriors of the Antarctic expeditions will find themselves.
