The main work on the creation of military infrastructure in the Arctic islands will be completed by the end of 2016, reports TASS Post Deputy Defense Minister Timur Ivanov.




“The main work in the Arctic should be completed before the end of this year. The current infrastructure readiness on all the arctic islands makes it possible to keep combat duty and carry out tasks as intended. But work to further deploy units of the Ministry of Defense in the Arctic will continue in 2016-2020. Today, at the design stage and at the preparatory stage - the creation and modernization of a number of airfields in the Arctic zone, such as Tiksi, Anadyr, Vorkuta, Tempe and others ”,
said Ivanov.

“Construction in the Arctic is unique in the organization of logistics, delivery, construction and installation work project. First time in stories Modern Russia is conducting such large-scale work in the conditions of the Far North, ”he stressed.

The builders are building objects on the 6 islands of the Arctic zone. “A lot has been done, the work is being done in the difficult climatic conditions of the Arctic with a complex logistic scheme for the delivery of building materials. The pace of work must be respected, and in some places it should be increased - this is a very important issue regarding the defense and security of the country, ”said the deputy minister.

According to him, “the construction of stationary objects of the radar department and the guidance point continues aviation at Cape Schmidt. " There, this year, “it is planned to complete the construction of about 40 buildings and structures, which will make it possible to place servicemen and ensure their service,” Ivanov said.

      The faster the better. We must be reliably protected from the north and control our territories.

      Russia's activity in the Arctic is very puzzling to the Americans.

      Let them better suppress Negro riots at home, after the lawlessness of the police.

        Russian activity in the Arctic


        all whining from the west comes from the fact that Russia is active everywhere.

        in the Middle East, NATO (from their words), the Arctic, Crimea, Ukraine, the SCO, cooperation with China, South America, contracts with Iran and more are falling apart.

        Yes, and the Russian Federation is actively conducting intelligence activities in the states themselves

    I believe that the flight time from the northern cap of the world to the main probable partners, as well as to clusters of probable partners, is not big. So to say, this time Cuba can not be disturbed repeat

      , Cuba may not be bothered this time

      Helping military bases to our overseas friends is far from superfluous. The north is good, and an extra hook from the south will never hurt a partner laughing

      And EuroPRO in this situation is money thrown into the trash.

    I hope the Turks are not building? Otherwise they will tune for their "best friends."

    The Arctic was, is, and will be ours! There is the very dotted line from the north pole to the Kola and the Bering Strait, and no one had any questions, they were even afraid to stutter!

    The Americans relaxed, they forgot how it was under the USSR. Soon, in many parts of the world, they will agree with Russia, no matter what happens.

    Construction is being carried out on 6 islands, and broad media coverage is carried out only on two objects: the base at Kotelny ("North Clover") and the base on Alexandra Land ("Arctic Trefoil") ... What is being done on Wrangel? What is the situation on the Average? What was built on Novaya Zemlya and on Cape Schmidt?

    Cape Schmidt is not an island, but a real continent. Why do they write on 6 islands? Maybe some, ZFI, for example?

    Time is what we lack for prosperity and development. It is a pity that OUR ARCTIC is only developing militarily now. And since 2000, what did you think and how did you plan? And now it’s too late or I don’t know in a timely manner.
