YUZHNO-SAKHALINSK, April 18. /ITAR-TASS/. By 2016, Russia will organize autonomous military towns at the Iturup and Kunashir Islands, Commander of the Eastern Military District Colonel General Sergei Surovikin said on Friday.
“By 2016, all the major facilities, which are over 150, will be built at the Iturup and Kunashir Islands. Those are modern, fully autonomous military towns with developed social infrastructures. Besides military facilities, they will have houses and buildings for leisure and sports,” he said.
