Progress antarctic station was originally established in 1988 under the Soviet Antarctic Program.

In 1989 the station was moved to a neighbouring place and became a russian summer station in October 1991.
Later in 2008 a fire destroyed the main building but the station was quickly rebuilt and is permanently occupied actually.

Today the station continues the original program on geomagnetism, oceanography, hydrography and meteorological observations.
