Rural locality Teriberka in Russia consists of two settlements: Teriberka and Lodeynoe (New Teriberka). In 1930, 2 km from Teriberka, the village of Lodeynoye arose, which was used as an outport for stopping regular steamers and a place for the location of ship repair shops.
Teriberka developed quickly after the Second World War. In the 1940s–1960s, there were two fishing farms, two dairy farms, a poultry farm, a 2000-head reindeer herd, an American mink breeding farm, and two fish processing facilities in the village, as well as shops and warehouses of the White Sea base of Goslov (a government-sponsored organization of skilled workers). Repair facilities of the shipyard were working at their full capacity and were being expanded. Active construction of housing and public organizations was underway. The village had a stadium, a community center, workers’ clubs of the shipyard, a fish processing facility, a Young Pioneers club, two schools (elementary and secondary), a boarding school for children from the coastal settlements, one inpatient and one outpatient hospital, and an ambulance station.

2. Since the transfer of the main production facilities to Murmansk, Lodeynoye began to decline. Everything is totally destroyed. People live … although they probably survive in houses through the walls of which the sky is visible. It was planned to resettle the residents by 2017. Some were offered housing in the suburb of Murmansk, but others have begun to build houses right here.
