Russia builds a military camp near boarder with Ukraine
The military facility is near the railway linking Moscow and Luhansk
"Russia has started to build a huge military base housing ammunition depots and barracks for several thousand soldiers near the Ukrainian border, a project that suggests the Kremlin is digging in for a prolonged stand-off with Kyiv", as reported by Reuters.
Russian government released some tender documents on building the military camp on near Valuyki, not far from Soloti; near the railway linking Moscow and Luhansk. The country intends to build nine barracks for 3.5 thousand soldiers, artillery weapons, warehouses for rockets, and other munitions. The total area of this real military settlement is more than 6 thousand square meters. It is also planned to build a training complex, and the infirmary for 50 beds, "which can be expanded in case of massive influx of wounded", according to the tender documents.
In April 2014 a military activity erupted, and severe fighting across the Ukrainian frontlines 25 km away from the place took place here. The completion of the first stage of building (initial construction and installation works) is scheduled for April 29, 2016.
