🔥DECIMATED: One of #Russia’s most formidable combat units—the 200th Separate Motor Rifle Brigade that protects Russia’s Arctic nuclear submarine arsenal—sent its best fighters & weapons to #Ukraine this year and was DESTROYED.

During my expedition to the #NorthPole in 2017, I bunked at the same base where #Russia’s 200th Arctic brigade was training.

Here’s video that I shot from my iPhone of some of the troops departing the Arctic base for a training mission.
WOW: Less than 900 were left of the 1,400 to 1,600 soldiers in #Russia’s elite brigade who were shipped off to #Ukraine.

And some of those still being counted as part of the unit were listed as hospitalized, missing or “refuseniks” unwilling to fight.💥

This is a straight unhindered line from here to the South Pole.

Shri Somnath jyotirling Mandir
Veeraval #Gujarat

The Baan Stambh (Arrow Pillar) is located within the premises of the mandir. It is believed to be constructed in somewhere the sixth century. It tells us that there is no piece of land from here to south pole.
From this point at the Somnath Mandir to the #SouthPole in Antarctica there is no land mass, if one travels through the sea.

Did the mandir construct keeping this in mind??
