Secret bunkers of the Nazis and the weapons discovered on the Islands of the Gulf of Finland. The joint expedition of the Russian geographical society and the Ministry of defense opened a lost world where a war still lay untouched.
Geophysics, radar explore the granite. Big Tyuters island's military treasures, and the treasures could be hiding in the caves. Guns, cultural values, taken by the Germans from the occupied territories, documents, but above all the expedition interested in the people search engines is haunted by the story of two Ivanov, two scouts lost in those dunes and rocks.
Geophysicist Alexander Artyuhin "the Son of the old light Keeper told me that in one of the caves was a move that led to who knows where. This is one of the objects of our search."
On 8 km of land in 1943 3-strong German garrison, a huge artillery group. And yet 2 Ivan managed to avoid being caught. Big Tyuters and Gogland is the key and the lock from the Baltic. Here between the two Islands is the channel, but in 1941, our troops were forced to leave this most important from a strategic point of view position. At the Gogland entrenched Finns, Tutere the Germans. The Gulf of Finland by this time was heavily mined. The Baltic fleet trapped in Leningrad and Kronstadt. Orders to hold the island came late in the day. Hogland managed to fight off, but only for 3 months. Tyuters troops of the Baltic fleet tried to storm causemy on the ice. How many on the left Tutere military scrap, you can imagine what was his defense. Hundreds of tons.
In the forest, where was the fuel depot, the barrels are marked "Wehrmacht". The shore is dotted with machine gun nests. Here was an artillery battery in the parameters, comparable to those that defended Berlin. But still wonderfully Soviet saboteurs were landed on Tutere. From the air the island was fired at the aircraft. One of the tasks of the expedition - the discovery of IL-2, which according to archive documents, crashed in Tutere during the war.
The Germans left Tyuters in 1944, after an unsuccessful attempt to discourage the former allies - Finns - Hogland. Left behind a solid minefield. Still the island is not neutralized. The deminers to international mine centre who have recently worked in Palmyra demining insidious Bouncing mines.
