Barentsburg is the second-largest settlement on Svalbard, with inhabitants almost entirely made up of ethnic Russians and Ukrainians.
The place started as a Dutch mining town in the 1920s, in 1932 the Dutch sold their concession to the Soviet Union.
Russia maintains a consulate in Barentsburg, the northernmost diplomatic mission of any kind in the world. (Wikipedia)
