Plan for military bases

Interfax reports a “military diplomatic source” in Moscow as saying that Russia may set up three military bases in Abkhazia and South Ossetia (my tr.):

“Military experts working with specialists from other departments are considering the possible deployment of military bases in the Abkhaz towns of Gudauta and Ochamchira, and also in Dzhava, South Ossetia,” the agency spokesman said. 

In clarification, he remarked that it would be preferable for the bases to be located in places where miliary units were stationed in Soviet times. “In Gudauta, where there’s a military airfield, a paratroop assault unit could be based,  for example, with aircraft and air defence facilities, part of the Black Sea fleet could be put in the port of Ochamchira and in Dzhava a motorized infantry brigade.”

  1. I wonder how the likes of “Antiwar.com” can explain itself while it readily ignores reports of Justin Raimondo’s boy Vladimir Putin setting up military bases in Georgia. Sounds like its Sudetenland 2.0.
