The Ukrainian team spend 12 months working at the station. They were working on various projects including meteorological and seismic studies. Few people spend an entire year in Antarctica. One can only imagine how long winter must seem in this desolate environment.

This photograph was posted on the wall of the Research Center along with many other historic photographs. Surprisingly, most of the original photos from the British remain.
There was a small store at Vernadsky as well. T-shirts and patches were the only merchandise available. No danger of doing too much shopping in Antarctica!
