MOSCOW, June 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Infrastructure facilities at the Yars missile system complex near the city of Kaluga in central European Russia are to be commissioned in December 2014, in line with the schedule, the press service of Russia’s Federal Agency for Special Construction Projects (Spetsstroi) told ITAR-TASS on Friday.

The Kozelsk missile troops unit has been shifting to RS-24 Yars intercontinental ballistic missiles since 2012 to be the first one in the Russian army to be completely equipped with such weapons.

“The complex is planned to be commissioned in December 2014 in full compliance with the schedule set by the Russian defense ministry,” the press service said.

Apart from that, Spetsstroi said that commander of Russia’s strategic missile forces Colonel General Sergei Karakayev had arrived in the Kaluga region to inspect the Kozels missile troops unit.
