came here from the other side of russia and despite nonstop action and hard work he enjoys his time here that is because he projects some natural beauty from human harm the beauty which is visible from the very first glance. tucked in between the russian mainland japan and the circling island is the island of minute on named after french seafarer who discovered it it is described as the pride of the sakhalin region we'll take a look what's in store for us here. until two thousand and four the island was part of the borders own and was completely restricted to visit is now the speak to us place is open to tourists plants and animals are its top attraction. the island is unique because it is located far from the mainland and is practically
7:19 am
