Plot synopsis
In 1936, when the air was already beginning to smell of gunpowder, the USSR Naval Forces Command, together with the Main Directorate of the Northern Sea Route, carried out a covert operation, unique to the era, escorting two destroyers from Kronstadt to Vladivostok along the Northern Sea Route to replenish the forces of the newly formed Pacific Fleet.
It was a super secret and super complicated operation. After all, it was necessary to secretly drive through the ice of 6 seas two ships absolutely unsuitable for ice navigation.
But the sailors managed to cope with this task.
Until recently, archival documents on EON-3 were classified as "top secret".
The film uses materials from Russian Federation Civil Aviation, Navy Civil Aviation, RGAE, Institute of the Arctic and Antarctic and RGAKFD.
