Russian President Vladimir Putin has never been one to pass up a photo-up, and his latest candids comes from the icy Arctic. It’s all part of the unveiling of the country’s crown jewel: Russia’s sprawling Trefoil military base, located just outside the Arctic Circle. Jonathan Vigliotti reports.

Trefoil covers 14,000 square miles (151,000sq ft), and is the second Putin-era Arctic base to be built for air defense units. The first base was Northern Clover on Kotelny Island, further east.

A military airstrip “Nagurskoye” is also under construction in Franz Josef Land.

Russia is building four other Arctic military bases – at Rogachevo, Cape Schmidt, Wrangel and Sredniy.
