MOSCOW, February 2. /TASS/. A team of Russian inspectors plans to check on Tuesday military activities in a Turkish region under the 2011 Vienna Document on confidence and security building measures, Sergey Ryzhkov, the head of Russia’s Nuclear Risk Reduction Center, said.
"The inspection is geared to determine the scale of declared military activities or to verify the absence of military activities subject to prior notification within the designated region. The area subject to inspection is up to 18,000 square kilometers," he said.
Russian inspectors will visit firing ranges and will be briefed by the command of Turkey’s army units.
The inspection will be over on February 5.
The Vienna Document is an agreement between the participating states of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) which was intended to implement confidence and security building measures. Its provisions include an annual exchange of military information about forces located in Europe, notifications for risk reduction including consultation about unusual military activities and hazardous incidents, prior notification of certain military activities, observation of certain military activities, exchange of annual calendars, and compliance and verification by inspection and evaluation visits.
