Since October 01, NSR Administration stoped publishing of forecasts of ice condition types ("ice-free", "light", "medium", "heavy") for the Laptev Sea, East Siberian Sea, Chukchi Sea, due to the termination by AARI  issue of this type of forecast for the winter period. The decision on the possibility of navigation in these seas shall be made by the captain of the vessel on the basis of the analysis of ice conditions and recommendations. Vessels carefully monitor changes of the ice condition, so as not to be in unacceptable ice conditions for navigation.
