Russia Strengthens Military Bases Abroad

MOSCOW, May 23 (RIA Novosti) – Russia is strengthening its military bases abroad as well as helping to boost the armed forces of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Friday.

“In recent years, we have worked to strengthen the Russian military bases in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan: we have increased the number of air defense units at the Kant airbase [in Kyrgyzstan], and the 201st base now has a divisional structure,” Shoigu said at a security conference in Moscow.

The International Security Conference began in Moscow Friday for the third time. The event is being attended by military experts and government officials from a number of countries, including China, Belarus, Iran, Egypt, Syria, Iraq and Serbia.

Defense ministers or deputy ministers from the member countries of the CSTO and SCO are also planning to attend the conference. Two panel discussions are expected: “The Search for Ways to Stabilize the Situation in the Middle East and North Africa” and “Afghanistan and Regional Security.”

European Union, US and NATO representatives, critical of Russia's actions in Ukraine, refused to participate in the event.

Russian’s Air Force to Receive New Generation Long-Range Bomber in 2023



VORONEZH, May 22 (RIA Novosti) – The Russian Air Force will start receiving its first PAK DA next generation long-range bomber in 2023, Russian Air Force Commander-in-Chief Lt. Gen. Viktor Bondarev said Thursday.

Earlier reports said PAK DA bombers could be supplied to the Russian Air Force approximately by 2020.

“The maiden flight should be performed in 2019. State tests and supplies will be completed in 2023,” Bondarev said.

The head of United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), Mikhail Pogosyan, told reporters earlier that the full-fledged construction work would start already this year.

Russia’s strategic Air Force operates a total of 32 Tu-95MC6, 31 Tu-95MC16 and 13 Tu-160 bombers. Altogether, they are capable of carrying 850 long-range cruise missiles.

It is expected that the new bomber will be able to penetrate through modern air defenses and suppress them. PAK DA will be equipped with the newest complex of the radio electronic combat and high-precision weaponry.

All Russian Missile Divisions to Receive Yars Simulators This Year

MOSCOW, May 15 (RIA Novosti) – All divisions of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces will receive new simulators by the end of the year, including simulators of the advanced Yars nuclear-capable ballistic missile, a military spokesman said Thursday.

“By late 2014, all the divisions, military units, universities and training centers of Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces will receive over 130 of the newest simulators. This is a 10 percent increase since last year,” Col. Igor Yegorov told journalists.

The Russian Strategic Missile Forces are due to receive up to 1,000 simulators for training specialists in the maintenance of advanced missile systems, Yegorov said.

“This year, some 30 tests will be conducted on simulators, including 3D graphics, to train specialists on the fifth-generation missile systems,” he said, adding that some 40 such tests were successfully carried out last year.

The fifth-generation RS-24 Yars (NATO reporting name SS-29) is an upgraded version of the Topol-M ballistic missile that was first tested in 2007.

The RS-24 can carry multiple independently-targetable nuclear warheads to a range of 12,000 kilometers (7,500 miles), which are designed to perform maneuvers to evade missile defense systems.

Kazakhstan Ratifies Joint Air Defense Shield Deal with Russia

ASTANA, May 15 (RIA Novosti) – Kazakhstan’s upper house of parliament ratified Thursday an agreement with Russia on establishing a joint regional air defense shield, a Novosti-Kazakhstan correspondent has reported.

The shield will become part of the unified air defense system of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), a loose alliance of former Soviet states, comprising Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

“The forces of the unified regional air defense system of Kazakhstan and Russia are led by a commander appointed by the Kazakh and Russian presidents upon the recommendation of defense ministers from both sides,” a committee on international affairs, defense and security said in a report.

The planned shield would be used only in times of war, while in time of peace the respective agencies together with the commander will fulfill only routine duties, a report says.

Moscow signed an agreement to set up an integrated regional air defense network with Kazakhstan last year. Russia has such a network with Belarus, while a similar deal with Armenia has been in the works for some time.

Russia to Refit 2 Sierra-Class Nuclear Subs



MOSCOW, May 14 (RIA Novosti) - The Russian Defense Ministry has signed a contract to refit two Soviet-era Sierra-class multipurpose nuclear submarines, the Zvezdochka shipyard said Wednesday.

"A contract was signed with the Defense Ministry to extensively refit two Project 945 [NATO reporting name Sierra]. One of the submarines has remained at the shipyard for over 10 years, the other will arrive this year," spokesman Yevgeny Gladyshev said.

The refit will extend the submarines' service for about 10 years.

The shipyard's workers are currently removing nuclear fuel from the reactor of the first submarine, the Karp, laid down in 1987. The submarine's refit is expected to be completed in 2017.

The Russian navy announced in early April that it expected to receive over ten modernized nuclear submarines by 2020.
