Looks like the Russians were beaten by a few days by Irishman Edward Bransfield. In an Irish Times article of January 25, 2020, we find "Vice Admiral Mellett noted how Bransfield landed on an island on January 22nd, 1820, which he named after King George, before sailing a further 60km south where they sighted Trinity Peninsula, Antarctica".
