" The expedition of CAVEX "Window’ 2005" endedThe preliminary results reported by Georgyi Sapozhnikov from EkaterininburgThe cave divers Oleg Klimchuk and Juryi Bazilevski worked behind the Cvetochka sump in the depth - 1986 m, which was dived from Koliya Solovem (Ukrainian Speleological Association) during this winter. After that 2 new sumps ( named Podnir and Unitaz) were dived. The depth difference between Cvetochka sump and the last riched point ( according the preliminary calculations) is 174 m so the new depth of Krubera cave is - 2160 m. The cavers made some climbing in the Wet pit in the Krim meander and in the bottom of the cave up to the pit "The game is over".
