Expedition of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and the Russian Geographical Society on the Kuril island of Matua found a Japanese pumping station during the war
This is reported by the headquarters of the Eastern Military District (VVO).

“The station, which consists of two concrete structures, is well preserved for its time. Inside the buildings, search engines found power cables, pipelines, pumps, and various parts for them. On each unit there is Japanese marking with hieroglyphs, ”the press service of the TSB says.

Also in the concrete bunkers are two reservoirs of approximately 30 cubic meters each with fresh water. Scientists of the military-historical expedition analyze this water in laboratory conditions.

Engineering works are continuing in the area of ​​the Kruglaya hill. With the help of special heavy machinery, personnel make passages in the ground in order to identify still unexplored underground fortifications.

The search and rescue helicopter Ka-27 PS, rising from the hospital ship "Irtysh", flew around the island in order to more accurately reconnaissance of defensive objects, said in a press release.

The expedition of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and the RGO in the number of 200 people on six ships and vessels of 7 May left Vladivostok and May 14 arrived on Matua, Interfax notes.
