Bishkek (AKIpress) - The US Manas transit center refueling mission is completed on 24 in February, said the head of the press service of the Center, Max Dispeyn, on February 12 at the closing ceremony of the Cooperation and Security Division.


According to her, at this time cargo-passenger aircraft continue their work on the territory of the Center.

“Most of the refueling aircraft are sent to the United States. Cargo and passenger airplanes will remain on the territory of the Transit Center until the equipment is completely removed, ”M. Dispin said.

From the 2001 of the year, the Manas Transit Center carries out 4 main activities: air refueling, personnel overload, cargo overload and partnerships. Air refueling is carried out on tankers KC-135R.

“The staff of the Transit Center“ Manas ”performs approximately 25% of operations on air refueling, if compared with all other operations, and 33% over the territory of Afghanistan. The key of all this is that we are very close to Afghanistan, this is the 1,5 flight hour, ”said Center Commander Colonel John Millard earlier.

Since 2001, the US Manas airbase (Transit Center) has delivered more than 12,2 billion gallons of fuel from Bishkek to Afghanistan as part of the “Enduring Freedom” antiterrorist operation. The pilots of the air base made 33,5 thousands of sorties and refueled 135 thousands of aircraft.

The day before the ceremony of the end of the Center’s refueling mission was held at the Manas airport. The servicemen solemnly conducted a KC-135 tanker aircraft during the flight.

    The incident occurred on the afternoon of December 6 at the US air base at Manas Airport. An American soldier shot a citizen of Kyrgyzstan Alexander Ivanov with a pistol at a checkpoint near the airport airfield. According to sources in the Kyrgyz Ministry of Internal Affairs, AKIpress reported that the soldier fired two shots at Ivanov’s tanker driver.


    As a result of the US anti-terrorist operation in AFGHANISTAN-in Kyrgyzstan, the tanker Ivanov was shot dead - he interfered with the triumph of democracy around the world.

    I did not hear such news on shooting.
    It would be necessary to finally gasp from the territory of Afghanistan (you can directly from the border) from MANPADS in pursuit of US transport aircraft for this.
    The withdrawal of this US base from Kyrgyzstan is welcome.
    We should expand and understaff our Kant base with additional forces of both the Air Force, Air Defense, and ground forces. It is time, already within the framework of the CSTO, to act and deploy our quick reaction forces on the paths of a possible invasion of the Mujahideen from Afghanistan (at the request of the CIA).
    Unfortunately, we cannot replay them without a fight. There are agents in Afghanistan, but apparently not enough. It remains to exterminate the radial Islamists in parts. The Kirghiz alone will not be able to do this, and you cannot restrain them with front-line bombers and helicopters anyway.
    A full-fledged military base in Kyrgyzstan is our presence in the region, this is an opportunity to deploy along the borders of Afghanistan.
    At the last moment, the Kirghiz need to squeeze out everything that is useful from the Americans - equipment, machinery, equipment. All that will help improve the manning of the army and related forces.

        Thanks for the info. I missed it somehow. We are waiting for the development of the situation in Kyrgyzstan. They will bring out their "Airport" - they can again put a pig on us. For example, stir up again the Kergez radicals, saying that the power is not the same and life is not a joy.

      The base in Kant is already being expanded, the takeoff is being lengthened for the jump of strategists, and the construction of a military base in Osh will also begin this year. And the TSC "Manas", Russia is already starting to get its hands on it!

      It’s impossible according to your charter. According to the charter of the US armed forces it is possible. You, too, have enough of your dumb ones. And the logic is with you. If without a headdress they give honor mean dumb? These stupid 800+ bases around the world and you have one smart 102 base and Kant.

        You will of course excuse me, I am not strong in geopolitics and I do not know to whom and how you are giving "honor" there and what you call yourself later. But in our fleet (and I think in the army)

        And why do Russia need 800 bases? The base in Kaliningrad covers all of Europe, the base in Kamchatka is occupied by your America, the 102 base is in the Middle East, the base in Kant is a gift to China. Hello to you from the Russian bear soldier

          Your general staff will not agree with you. New bases are needed. The news is already about new bases. My argument is none of this. The Scandinavian logic is strange simply.

    Already wrote in another article, the base in Kant is a very useful thing, especially against the background of Ukraine ...
    And what about the construction of the base in Osh, where does such information come from, is it possible to drop the link? I haven’t really agreed yet, it seems that they’re not even negotiating, openly at least, although I could be wrong.

      DARDANEC You are right, there is no open information on the city of Osh yet, but people who have taken part in the construction of the base in Kant are now actively collecting up to the heap, even those who already live in Russia. All of them are invited to take part in the construction of the Osh base, and besides, they have been talking about the organization of the CSTO base in Osh for two years now.

    Not really, they just put a hand on an empty head, but the head is empty not only because there is no headgear, it is empty on either side, as they say. hi

    These stupid 800+ bases around the world and you have one smart 102 base and Kant.

    And whether they use their bases stupidly, I won’t go into details, but the destruction of civilians almost all over the world because of their material interests is not stupidity in the broad sense of the word. What then do you think is genius?

    Well then, let's hope that all this will not end just with conversations, and the base in Osh will really appear! If it is nevertheless created, it will be a real guarantee of peace in Central Asia.
    To clarify a little, I live in Kant, moreover, I have lived most of my life on the territory of the military town of the former military unit 23565, which later became the Kant airbase. The fact is that most of the infrastructure for the base was built in Soviet times, with the arrival of the Russians, a lot was built, but this is mainly a sports complex and residential buildings for officers, barbed wire around the perimeter and a couple of pillboxes, well, the FSB building, perhaps there is something else, but the runway, the airfield itself with the infrastructure, the training complex on which half of the world studied at one time, Arabs, Negroes, etc., barracks, an old gym, a house of culture, 2 checkpoints, etc. were built in the USSR and, after all, it was operated under the Kyrgyz Republic ... A significant part of the local population took part in the construction of the above, incl. and my good acquaintances, whom no one invites anywhere, and is there a need, most likely if they do something in Osh, then it is not from scratch, and there will be a lot of people who want to take part in the construction in Osh too ... hi
