(from wikipedia) "Zemlya Aleksandry (Alexandra Land). Is the westernmost island in the archipelago. MillsNagurskoye base, named after Jan Nagórski, has served as one of the most important meteorological stations in the archipelago during the Cold War. It has a 1,500 m (4,900 ft) snow runway. An Antonov An-72 cargo aircraft crashed while landing at Nagurskoye on 1996-12-23."
The runway in this photo appears to match that description.
