The water level in the Ob to date is only in winter. So it's safe to say that this shoaling deep river — an anomaly. If this continues, Ob soon become as Chumysh or Charysh.
According altapress.ru, ships "Moscow", which are laid up in rechportu Barnaul, display pushers with parking areas — that technology is not "grown into" in the sand. Rescue boats are now in the village of Zaton — because the water (sand) for parking hangar does not get.
