Yuny Strait (Russian: Юный пролив) is a strait in Severnaya Zemlya, Russia. It is covered with ice most of the year.


Initially named Proliv Yungshturm (Russian: пролив Юнгштурм) after the Roter Jungsturm of the German Communist Youth, following the Great Patriotic War, its name was changed to Yuny (Youth).[1][2][3][4]


The Yuny Strait is a maximum 24 km (15 mi)-wide strait that separates Pioneer Island from Komsomolets Island, connecting the Kara Sea in the northwest with the Red Army Strait in the southeast.[5] It runs roughly in a northwest/southeast direction and its confluence with the Red Army Strait is located 23 km (14 mi) to the southwest of Cape October. The minimum width of Yuny Strait is 4 km (2.5 mi).[6]
