2008-11-28 14:15

Russia will spend from 10 to 12 billion rubles on building military bases in Abkhazia and South Ossetia, the Gazeta informs, alluding to a high-ranking source in the Construction and Billeting service in the Ministry of Defense of Russia.


The construction of one base will demand 5-6 billion rubles. The expenses are considerable as the construction implies not just building barracks and military machines park, but also building roads and laying services.

It's already known that South Ossetian bases will be situated in Tskhinval and Dzhava; 3.8 thousand persons from subdivisions of 693rd motorized infantry brigade of North Caucasian command must be quartered there.

Now this olace can be achieved only through the Roki Tunnel. The building of bypass road through Mamisoni gorge, planned for near future, will help to solve problem of movement of military motor transport and armored machines.

Construction of bases in Abkhazia is going to cost less, as military infrastructure is preserved. Moreover, railway transportation with the republic was established even before the conflict.

Let us remind that Russia plans to locate three military bases in the region: one in South Ossetia and two in Abkhazia, to be precise - in Gudauta, where Russian army previously stayed, and also a marine military base in the port of Ochamchira.
