In the Eastern Military District, more 150 facilities will be built - modern autonomous towns with a developed social infrastructure

The development of military infrastructure in the Pacific coast and the east of the country as a whole was discussed on April 18 at a visiting session of the Military Council of the BB. It was held on Sakhalin under the leadership of the district commander Sergei Surovikin.

Before 2016, more than 150 facilities will be built on the territory of the Eastern Military District - modern autonomous towns with a developed social infrastructure. The modernization will affect operational transport networks, three operating test sites in the Sakhalin Region, and equipment for training complexes.

The construction of base military camps on the Kuril islands of Iturup and Kunashir is planned, and survey work has already been completed.

Surovikin noted that in connection with the development of the Far East, including Sakhalin and the Kuriles, as the eastern outpost of Russia, a number of tasks are set before the troops and formations of the VBO, including neutralization of existing and potential threats.

This autumn, the Vostok-2014 command-staff exercise will take place. “There will be no room for error, and the participants need to demonstrate all the knowledge gained,” added Surovikin.

In 2013, the district troops were re-equipped: they received more than 1,5 thousands of vehicles - upgraded aircraft, helicopters, the Iskander complex, the super-maneuverable multipurpose SU-35 fighter.

Corrections to the training of military units were made and a large-scale sudden check of the combat readiness of the VVO troops in July last year, one of the practical stages of which took place on Sakhalin. Now more attention will be paid to the transfer of troops over long distances, marches on standard equipment, the regrouping of troops in a combined way, the preparation of naval and airborne assault forces for landing on unequipped coasts, the use of unmanned aerial vehicles and long-range weapons.
