Latvian Defense Ministry proposed to adapt the former Soviet military town under the NATO range


According to the portal, the local Duma "must make a decision in the coming months."

“In Skrunda, it would be possible to conduct tactical exercises in an urban environment. The former military camp is a unique object, ”said Republic’s Defense Minister Raimonds Bergmanis.

The publication notes that over the past 15 years, the military camp has changed several owners. “The buildings have fallen into decay, they have taken everything valuable out of them. A year ago, the object became the property of the local government, ”writes the resource.

In Soviet times, a short-range radar was located in Skrunda, which was detonated after Latvia gained independence. The area of ​​the town is 45 ha.

      And people could live. But for Latvians, this is apparently a bit of a bastard - to live in former Soviet military camps. Or maybe there is already nobody?

        Most likely not to anyone, but there are a lot of such towns.

          Decline because these countries since the days of the USSR are used to living at the expense of someone. This mentality has remained so far. After all, they do not know how to build.

          Balts like rats scatter all over the world, they feel what kind of Tryndets Nata is driving, there remains a schiz. It is not clear why the Russians do not declare their presence there., As in the Donbass ??? Nothing! Our politicians do not work in this direction, or is everything a secret !?

        From limited information. The Baltics must be loved, this is the former Yarov Rus, the homeland of the Wends. By the way, the toponym "Rugen" in the Latvian language, due to the absence of the letter "u", sounds like "Rigen", which corresponds to the toponym "Riga".

          No need to repeat this absurdity.
          Wends lived much to the west. They directly bordered the Utahs and Saxons.

          Loving, grooming and cherishing the Baltic states is harmful, as historical experience has shown. In Sweden, hedgehogs did not survive, being dependent on Germany did not arise either. But when they were made a showcase for the West in the Soviet Union and almost ran after her with a handkerchief, they became insolent and decided that it would be so all the time. And when the USSR collapsed (not without help) and they had to survive on their own, they preferred to lie under the USA, and America did not indulge too much with (e) the Baltics. So do you need to love? And for what? For their attitude to the Russians? For the institution of non-citizenship? For escalating hysteria? Tolerate - yes. But to love everyone - no, pipes. Natives of the Baltic countries who love their homeland are worthy of respect, but do not impose this love on the rest. We got it already, chesslovo!

      And on the territory of the countries of the former Warsaw Pact, especially where are the NATO bases now? And the rest from the GBV? Surrendered to the enemy

        For all the abandoned military camps, starting from the western borders of the Warsaw Pact countries and ending with the former Soviet republics, special thanks to the Great Perestroika. And thanks to him for dozens, if not hundreds, of thousands of broken human destinies from people living in these territories. The wreckage of a great country - the USSR, whether it be an abandoned military town, a collapsed factory or an unnecessary house of culture - this is a clear demonstration of how to spoil the best idea.

    For almost 30 years, the Skrunda radar has been monitoring outer space in order to warn of a missile attack, and has provided security for the western borders of the Soviet Union. The station started operating at full capacity in 1971. After the withdrawal of Russian troops from Latvia, the constant complaints of local residents about strong electromagnetic radiation from the station led to the fact that on April 30, 1994, Latvia and Russia signed an agreement to dismantle the radar. The unfinished building of the new locator in May 1995 was blown up. The dismantling of the station began on September 1, 1998, the day after the cessation of its operation. The territory of the station was transferred to the council of self-government of the Ransky volost of the Kuldigsky district. Russia for free renounced the right to own a town with ten residential buildings for 540 apartments, a hotel, a hospital, a kindergarten, two clubs, a bathhouse and other facilities.

    Or maybe it’s worthwhile to demand payment for the construction and use of property of the USSR. It will be funny to look at the reaction of the Baltic states.

    Nda, as I understand it, there are a huge number of such towns (military and not so) in the vastness of the former Soviet Union (and in the Russian Federation as well), and most are abandoned. What is there to want from Latvia? Why is this town necessary for a limiter of this scale? So they use it as they can. To be honest, I don't see anything strange. Another thing is that enemies will improve their skills, this is unpleasant. Limitrofov will need to return "home" as soon as possible. I'll make a reservation right away, the Balts have good friends and I can't say anything bad about these peoples. We must return ... USSR v.2.0 ...

    Yes, of course, my heart is sweating when I look at these abandoned military camps. BUT!!! This forced us to create new systems that do not make us dependent on others, on the Baltic states, averaged Asia, and others.
    In Soviet times, I had to visit Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, the Baltic states, and Moldova. I always knew how to behave with sellers, taxi drivers, bus and truck drivers, cops. 95% as throughout the country, 5% - features of local flavor. Now I do not know)

    I was in Liepaja. Just near the port. There are old Soviet five-story buildings. Many Russians. We talked with the locals. The mood is dull. They say that here we are not needed and Russia is not needed ....
    Our embassies are a sinecure for thieves, and not the center of Russian influence in foreign countries. Shameful failure of pensioner Zurabov in Ukraine. Slurred actions in the Baltic states. ..a lot of where.

    Adazhi is not enough for them .... (Adazhi in Soviet times, a complex of "training" and a large land range, now used in NATO). From Riga is located 20 km.
    Apparently, the labuses at the former Soviet military facilities decided to earn at least something.
