ZARYA SETTLEMENT (Moscow region), December 24 (Itar-Tass) — Over 20 military airfields will be built anew or modernized in the coming few years, Russian Air Force Commander-in-Chief, Lieutenant General Viktor Bondarev, told reporters on Monday.
He said the decision had been made to modernize the whole airfield network before 2020. It will be “expanded and updated,” the general said. “One wing will be based at one airfield,” Bondarev said.
He reminded reporters of earlier plans to set up eight major aviation bases with prospects for construction and modernization of the airfield network at these bases. “So far we have failed to do that as intensive repairs are underway at these airfields,” he said. “All our airfields were built in the 1950s and their infrastructure is outdated and does not meet demands of the present day,” the commander-in-chief said.
