When a nuclear icebreaker passes by you (Russia)

These Russians were repairing a snowmobile when they noticed an nuclear icebreaker in the distance, behind which other ships were sailing.

A nuclear-powered icebreaker is a nuclear-powered ship, purpose-built for use in waters covered with ice. The only country constructing nuclear-powered icebreakers is Russia. Nuclear-powered icebreakers have been constructed by the Soviet Union and later Russia primarily to aid shipping along the Northern Sea Route in the frozen Arctic waterways north of Siberia
