KHABAROVSK, May 31. /TASS/. The construction, reconstruction and modernization of infrastructure of units and formations of Russia’s Eastern Military District remain a priority for the Russian Defense Ministry’s construction complex, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Timur Ivanov told journalists on Tuesday.
"At the instruction of the defense minister, during a working trip to the Eastern Military District we have inspected the most important military construction sites on the islands of the Kuril chain, in Vilyuchinsk, in the Khabarovsk and Trans-Baikal Territories. We have examined the site structures and facilities of units of the combined arms and services, coastal infrastructure of the submarine forces of the Pacific Fleet in Kamchatka, military towns, residential areas, airfields and arsenals", the deputy minister is quoted by the Defense Ministry’s press service.
Ivanov said that the modernization of the Russian Armed Forces’ infrastructure in the Far East remains a priority in military construction, as there are many military facilities under construction and modernization in the region, and special attention is given to the housing and social facilities. He added that checks of the most important construction projects will be regularly conducted in all Russia’s military districts, including in the Arctic zone.
At present, more than 250 complex facilities are under construction and reconstruction in the Eastern and Central Military Districts, including housing construction (16,800 apartments) in such cities as Vilyuchinsk, Khabarovsk, Vladivostok, Chita, Ulan-Ude and others. The construction and outfitting of military towns is carried out under the standard design projects with the use of pre-fabricated steel structures and mobile tent shelters.
