The article reflects the results of scientific research conducted in August 2017, on board of the nuclear-powered ice- breaker “50 Let Pobedy”. The features of the ice regime from the ice edge in the Barents Sea to the North Pole are shown. The observations of marine mammals, birds, phytoplankton, and features of the hydrochemical regime of this  part of the Arctic are given. For the first time in many decades, the content of 137Cs and 90Sr radionuclides in sea water of the North Pole region was measured and their low concentrations were revealed.
