The Northern Convoys International Center was founded in December 2018 and has objectives to eternalize, augment and save for future generations the memory of hundreds of thousands people from different countries who took part in shipping the cargoes necessary for the Victory in the Great Patriotic and World War II, through the harsh Arctic waters.
