MOSCOW, March 20 (Itar-Tass) – President Vladimir Putin has submitted the agreement on the status of and the conditions for the stay of the Russian united military base in Kyrgyzstan and the protocol to it to the State Duma for ratification.
The documents, which were signed in Bishkek on September 20, 2012, are designed “to consolidate Russia’s presence in Kyrgyzstan and resolve issues related to the deployment and functioning of the united military base”.
The base involves four military facilities, which are deployed in Kyrgyzstan. These are anti-submarine weapon testing bases in Karakol, the communications centre in Kara-Balta, the radio-seismic laboratory in Mailii-Suu and the CSTO airbase in Kant. Russia intends to unite them. The base is planning to be put into operational service in 2017.
Russia and Kyrgyzstan sealed the military base agreement for 15 years starting 2017. The deal can be extended automatically for five years. The Russian-Kyrgyz agreements, which regulate the presence of Russian military units till January 29, 2017, operate in compliance with the protocol.
