Military Review

New military camps will appear on the Kuril Islands and Sakhalin.

At the end of last year, the commander of the troops of the Eastern Military District, Colonel-General S. Surovikin, spoke about the plans of the Ministry of Defense regarding infrastructure development. The focus of the coming years will be the Kuril Islands and Sakhalin. Before 2020, the Ministry of Defense together with the Federal Agency for Special Construction (“Spetsstroy of Russia”) should perform a number of important works on the construction of new facilities and the repair of old ones.

18 April in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk held a meeting of the command of the Eastern Military District. During this event, the military leaders discussed a number of important issues, including the construction of new facilities and the modernization of existing ones. The priority direction for the coming years will be the construction of infrastructure in the Kuril Islands. According to Colonel-General S. Surovikin, before 2016, more than 150 new facilities will be built on the islands of Kunashir and Iturup (Southern Kuriles). The decision to build a new infrastructure was made several years ago. All preliminary work has now been completed. All necessary projects are accepted and approved.

The goal of construction, which will begin in the next few weeks, is the creation of autonomous military camps. A number of military installations will appear on the southern islands of the Kuril Ridge, as well as a large number of residential buildings, etc. The autonomy of the townships will be provided by various civilian objects: hospitals, educational institutions, cultural, recreational and sports facilities. In total, over 150 various buildings and facilities will be built. In addition, the necessary roads will be built or repaired.

An interesting question is the classification of new infrastructure. The news agency SakhalinMedia, citing the head of the press service of the BBO, A. Gordeyev, reports that one hundred and fifty buildings and institutions appear in the documents as military men. The fact is that the construction orders and finances the Ministry of Defense. The consequence of this is a specific classification of hospitals and kindergartens, which according to the documents prove to be military objects.

TSB troops will populate new military camps in 2016 year. They will be able to take advantage of all the benefits that the built infrastructure provides. After completing work on the Kuril Islands, the employees of Spetsstroy of Russia will be engaged in the execution of another order of the military. By 2020, new autonomous towns are planned to be built on Sakhalin Island, as well as to upgrade existing ones. Construction of new and updating of existing towns on Sakhalin will be conducted in the same way as in the Kuriles. The military will receive new homes, medical and educational institutions, as well as cultural and sports facilities.

Thus, by the 2020, in the Far East several new military camps will appear with all the necessary infrastructure. This will strengthen the grouping of troops on Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands, which will correspondingly affect the country's defense capability. To increase the combat capability of the troops, already this year three testing grounds on Sakhalin and Kuriles will be modernized. Training sites will receive the most modern equipment.

The construction of autonomous towns can have not only military consequences, but also political ones. The creation of such objects in the South Kuriles will be an additional argument in favor of Russia in the long-standing Russian-Japanese dispute. Official Tokyo calls several southern islands of the Kuril Ridge (Iturup, Kunashir, Shikotan and the Habomai group) its territory, although according to the results of the Second World War they became the territory of the Soviet Union, and then Russia.

In its claims to the islands, Japan relies on the Treatise on Borders and Trade, signed by the two countries in the 1855 year. Russia, in turn, appeals to the results of the Second World War. Over the past decades, Japanese officials have regularly called on Russia to transfer to Japan the alleged territories belonging to it. Moscow, in turn, constantly reminds of its position.

In such a situation, reinforcement of the troops of the Eastern Military District, and even more so the construction of military camps in the South Kuril Islands, looks like another statement about the seriousness of the Russian position. The emergence of permanent towns and new facilities should clearly show that Russia is not going to abandon several "disputed" islands. Therefore, in the very near future, new unfriendly statements by the Japanese leadership and various radical organizations wishing to receive the islands may appear.

Nevertheless, the main result of the construction of new autonomous military camps will be the improvement of conditions of service. Thanks to the new construction program, over the next few years, a number of units serving in the Kuril Islands and Sakhalin will begin service in comfortable conditions. Soldiers will be able to take advantage of all the benefits of new towns as early as 2016.

      And why not start from Central Russia or Vladivostok (and not Russky Island) or maybe equip Norilsk (the most non-ecological city in Russia) or give apartments to all veterans or build normal hospitals, etc., etc. And you look and reach Russia not only for pensions (Crimea and South Abkhazia).

    I had to visit these islands more than once. This is our land, and what a wonderful climate there is and nature. I had to install there stations of distant radio navigation of the Eastern chain. We coped with the task of the motherland. I saw there still old Japanese tanks then. Now everything must be done wisely. These islands should also have sea bases for our FSB border troops. And we, on the instructions of these troops, will create flight control systems and landing on patrol ships. The work is interesting and young people will go there, youth should be invited from Ukraine, Will not regret it. I have the honor.

We need a global construction project in the Far East for migration to the east to begin. For if the Chinese are in the majority, they will also be able to hold a referendum. It is very painful to watch how the Chinese trash nature.

    This makes no sense.

    I was in Sakhalin and Kamchatka - abandoned military camps and starting positions - VERY MUCH. On Sakhalin - near a more or less village, it is imperative to eat the ruins of a former military unit.

    Why build new ones when there are old ones? Is there a lot of money?

    Himself a Sakhalin citizen, and saw how the towns were destroyed. If you go from south to north, you can immediately see. First, they destroyed the helicopter airfield in Korsakov, where the "crocodiles" and "cows" were based, as well as the S-300 division, which blocked the entire south. The minesweepers and IPC were removed. The airborne regiment in Khomutovo was liquidated, the military airfield in Sokol was closed, and all fighter-interceptors were accordingly removed. If there is an SME on Sakhalin, it is supplied from wheels, there are no normal RAV warehouses, everything was transported to the mainland or flooded in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk. The troops have been reduced by more than 70% from the previous composition before 1994. And again they want to rebuild this ... Putin himself, being the prime minister, disbanded the units. I wonder what our authorities think?

        Perhaps, but for this it is necessary to first restore the entire training base, completely rebuild the town that has long been transferred to the municipalities and civilians live there. And most importantly, restore the military airfield at Sokol for military transport aircraft. And then in the 18th PULAD they can consider that support in case of what will arrive within 2 hours.

    The Kuril ridge is long and there are many islands. If you approach wisely, you can build a defensive-offensive complex that has no analogues in the world. The United States is not very far from there. This will be a good response to Obama’s sanctions, and will help the American Congress begin to think in real terms. At the same time, you can very closely engage in the development of fisheries, which are currently completely collapsed and the remnants of the fishing fleet look like pirate vessels that trade in the criminal business.

    I will tell you a "big secret": the entire coast of the Far East, from Vladik to Sov.Havanna, is built up with military fortifications according to a sinusoidal law. Starting from the end of the 19th century, before the Japanese war, they were building before the first WW, they were preparing for WWII, they were building, after Damansky or before it was built, in between built and built. And then they abandoned everything, especially a lot after the Patriotic War. They finally threw it in the 90s, the main part of the fortifications never fought, and concrete was poured ... until the moon would be enough. Maybe we will not let the "collective farm" money go down the drain, we will come up with something more adequate?

      Reinforced concrete fortifications with a thickness of 2-4 m. Bunkers \ Bunkers.
      I was simply surprised - how much money they swelled (how they built !!!!! - the fact is that in the De Kastri area there is no sand necessary for concrete. That is, all the building materials were brought in by barges. In 30-40-50 of the XXth century Even the Americans imported sand from Sakhalin to build a terminal, the local station is unsuitable.

    Military towns ... I grew up in such cities. I will only say that it would be better to serve remote military "points" on a rotational basis. And to settle families, children behind a barrier, in isolation from the benefits of civilization is shortsighted. Do not repeat the mistakes of the Union! It is enough to set the barrier only directly in front of the military facility, but not in front of the village! It so happens that the children of the majority of servicemen are brought up in some kind of isolation from the outside world, often not being able to go to their favorite circles and sports clubs, because there are almost none of them in military garrisons. Wives do not have the opportunity to work, because there is no work in the garrison ... It is necessary to leave this !!! Military installations are sacred, but don't condemn families to such a life!

    Japan needs to come to terms with the fact that Russia, represented by V.V. Putin will not give up these islands. Yes, during the reign of Yeltsin, they somehow still could hope for this, but now Putin, on the contrary, positions himself as the president of the "land collector." Therefore, the Japanese have only one way out here, jointly develop this land with Russia, otherwise they will lose the very idea of ​​at least somehow being present in this region.

    Taburetkin left a "rich" legacy in the form of destroyed military facilities, infrastructure, towns. It will take a long time to build and restore everything, and if you take into account that they will drink at construction sites, then incredible money is needed for this. In addition, corruption scandals constantly arise in Spetsstroy.
