Yaya - New Island In the Laptev Sea

It turns out that the discoveries of new lands are possible even in our advanced time. A regular helicopter flight over the Laptev Sea has revealed an island previously unknown, which has been hiding under a layer of melted ice. A piece of land of approximately 500 square meters in area and not more than 1 meter high got an unusual name - Yaya.

      And although the discovery was made in the last year, the scientific rationale for the increase of the territory if Russia has been received only recently - after the research ship “Admiral Vladimir” recorded the location of the island and documented the fact of its existence. This is written by the web site Independent The importance of this discovery lay in the opportunity to significantly shift the territorial waters in the Arctic Ocean. Taking into account the enormous hydrocarbon reserves in the region, this shift of the boundaries will be beneficial for Russia’s national interests, as the experts believe.
