Monaco Prince to Go to North Pole on Russian Airship

The current ruler of Monaco Prince Albert II may take part in an international expedition that is going to the North Pole on a Russian airship in March-April 2008, according to the first deputy chairman of the Russian Duma committee of international affairs Leonid Slutsky. The spring expedition to the North Pole will take place within the framework of International Polar Year proclaimed by the UN according to the Russian initiative.
      A year and a half ago Prince Albert participated in a Russia-Monaco expedition from the Russian polar station Barneo to the North Pole in dog-drawn sledges. This time the expedition is to use a Russian airship for transportation. The unique aircraft Au-30 was created by the Russian manufacturer Avgur Russian Air Systems (Avgur Rosaerosystems).
