Russia will create a military base in Somalia?

55
Representatives of Russia began negotiations on the establishment of a military base in Somalia, leading Lenta.ru report Post Telegram-channel Directorate 4.




The resource explains that we are talking about the deployment of a base in the territory of Somaliland - the unrecognized state in the north of Somalia.

“Negotiations could start at the beginning of 2017, when an unrecognized republic was visited by a staff member of the Russian embassy in Djibouti,” the report said.

According to the Directorate 4, Russia plans to build a small base "for a half thousand soldiers and infrastructure, allowing to serve two destroyers, four frigates and two submarines."

Also, "it is possible to build two runways that can receive up to six military transport aircraft and fifteen fighters," writes the resource.

The location for the base was allegedly chosen in the vicinity of the small town of Zale.

It is reported that, as payment, Russia promised Somaliland about $ 250 million of investments. In addition, Moscow can contribute to the international recognition of the republic.

The base in the north of Somalia will allow Russians to control the most important entry in the Suez Canal for world trade, the resource said.

Currently, the United Arab Emirates military base is already located on the territory of Somaliland.

            This is the third base outside the CIS. In the future, I am sure the base will expand. That is, Russia is beginning to slowly regain its position in key areas of the world. It would be nice if we returned to Cuba.

                this is the only territory that is located at a distance of a direct strike by the United States and does not fall under their tight control.
                when Canada, Mesquica and Cuba were controlled by the United States, they held only 3 divisions of troops on their territory.

    on the creation of a military base in Somalia, leads Lenta.ru message Telegram channel

    The base location was allegedly chosen

    Currently, the United Arab Emirates military base is already located on the territory of Somaliland.

    I believe that soon it will be possible to read the message of the telegram channel about the conclusion of a military alliance between Russia, Somalia, the Emirates and ... telegram channel laughing
    But seriously, our base in Somalia, Chinese in Djibouti ... For the "partners" is another unexpected person and an unplanned increase in the military budget.

    Given the fact that in 2003 a referendum was held in British Somalia, in which almost 100% of the inhabitants voted for independence and created Somaliland, the article looks fake. I wonder if there is any news about the fate of the Duchy of Arkel, the rights of the inhabitants of which are savagely violated by these savages from the Grand Duchy of Flanders (both states are somehow located in Antarctica)? A military base on the island of Saille (a small, one hundred and fifty military personnel, a couple of million drones, three corvettes, two nuclear submarines and a training center for fighting penguins) would look organic and would be very helpful.

    If only 250 million green. A few billions of green must be invested in creating the infrastructure of this base. Look at the map. No communications other than the Djibouti highway. We’ll have to create a port, build lanes, build a power station, some kind of re-enterprise, and all-all-everything else. There is actually a desert town. I’m afraid that even a couple of billions will not end .... It would be easier if Assad was already “obliged” to build a full-fledged naval base in Syria, which his father Assad Sr. had banned? And do not invest in an ephemeral project without a guarantee of something ... Or we will do it, and then, as in those years, marines will evacuate our staff ????
