MOSCOW, December 16, 13:45 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian military units will have their orders for Arctic region deployment by the middle of next week, Defence Minister Sergey Shoigu said on Monday.
Shoigu told a teleconference with armed forces managerial staff that “the General Staff should draft guidelines to develop military infrastructure and deploy military units in the Arctic".
These will be in line with the military strategy outlined in President Vladimir Putin's state of the nation speech last week, the minister said.
Shoigu ordered establishment of an information and intelligence complex within the new National Defence Centre now being constructed and the integration of command, control and intelligence functions.
