The agency also released a photograph of the object, noting that it is cylindrical in shape, about 40 centimeters high and 10 centimeters in diameter. It is assumed that we can talk about a sea smoke buoy. Russian experts assumed that it could be an antenna for receiving a signal to activate an explosive device.
Earlier it was reported that one of the results of the three-day visit of the Chairman of the Communist Party of China Xi Jinping to Moscow was expected signing a contract for the construction of the Power of Siberia-2 gas pipeline. However, this did not happen. Apparently, Beijing is waiting for Russian President Vladimir Putin himself to bring the treaty he signed during his return visit.
