Russia has upgraded its military bunkers, including the bunkers that contain nuclear weaponry, located in Kaliningrad Oblast near the Baltic Sea. CNN reported this, referring to the satellite data of private company ImageSat International.
The images shot from July till October show that large-scale modernization of the old and construction of the new bunkers took place; for instance, old bunkers near the town of Primorsk are now surrounded by the new ones. Judging by the photos, some of the new facilities seemed to be complete in a matter of ten weeks.
In February, a military base of the 152nd Missile Brigade of Russia's Armed Forces received Iskander missiles, capable of carrying a nuclear warhead. The base is located in Chernyakhovsk, Kaliningrad Oblast.
James Foggo, the U.S. Navy Commander in Europe and Africa told CNN that strengthening of the Russian positions in Kaliningrad Oblast will not stop the NATO. The Russian side has not commented on the statement so far.
