In 2014, Russia will completely close the radar field in the Arctic - Shoigu

In 2014, Russia will completely close the radar field in the Arctic. According to the press service of the Ministry of Defense, the head of the military department Sergei Shoigu said at a meeting of the Public Council under the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

Speaking at the meeting, the Russian Defense Minister spoke about the expansion of Russia's military presence in the Arctic and said that three expeditions to create infrastructure are currently underway on the Arctic islands. “Thus, this year we will completely close the radar field, and in 2015 we will be almost completely ready to meet uninvited guests, both from the east and from the north,” Sergei Shoigu said.

The head of the military department recalled that the restoration of airfields on the Novosibirsk islands, Franz Josef Land, and the northern airfields Tiksi, Naryan-Mar, Alykel, Vorkuta, Anadyr and Rogachevo had recently begun. All these actions will, he stressed, protect national interests in the region.
