The icebreaker Krasin

The icebreaker Krasin was built in 1916 in the United Kingdom for the Russian government. At the time of the 1917 Bolshevik revolution, it was deployed in Arkhangelsk. The ship was scuttled, seized and refloated by the British. In 1921, it sailed back to Soviet Russia, performed numerous feats in the Arctic and continued to operate until the next revolution in 1991.
