The structure of 2D-vortices related to the Kosterlitz-Thouless (KT) transition in highly anisotropic superconducting crystals is studied. Some new properties of the Abrikosov vortex lines are also considered, particularly their disintegration at T>Tc (Tc is KT transition temperature) and a mechanism of the power-law resistivity due to Abrikosov vortex-line breaking.
