Progress Station

Progress ( _ru. Прогресс) is a Russian (formerly Soviet) research station in Antarctica. It is located at the Larsemann Hills Oasis on the shore of Prydz Bay.

The station was established by the 33rd Soviet Antarctic Expedition [ru icon [http://www.ivki.ru/kapustin/journal/dubrovin9.htm Kapustin Arctica-Antarctica philatelia] ] on April 1 1988 and was moved to another place on February 26 1989 [ru icon [http://south.aari.ru/stations/progress/progress_ru.html Progress Station] at AARI website] In 2000, work was temporarily halted but it reopened in 2003.

A landing field is located close to the station for air connection with other stations. From 1998-2001 work was done on the moving of transportation devices to Progress from Mirny Station.

Since 2004, a new year-round facility is being built.
