According to Danish intelligence, the most Northern frontier post of Russia located on the Land of Franz Joseph, by 2020, will appear the current airbase with fighter planes. As transfers TV 2 NORGE, thus Russia will be able to detect in advance and prevent the threat of precision attack from the United States, before the enemy gets to the mainland.
ReutersСеверные areas and the Arctic today occupy a Central place in the Russian program of military modernization. Writes TV 2 NORGE, citing military intelligence of Denmark, apparently, at the northernmost border Outpost of Russia located on the Land of Franz Joseph, by 2020, will appear the current airbase with fighter planes.
According to the military intelligence service of Denmark, the base Nagurskaya border service will be the most Northern military base in the world and will allow the air forces of Russia to gain a foothold in the far North. According to Danish intelligence, the base will become for Russia the cornerstone of the construction of the first line of defense in the Arctic. Satellite images taken in the fall of 2019, indicate that there are working on lengthening the runway from 2,500 m to 3,500 m.
“Russia has started work on the runway in Nagorska in 2017 and continues to increase the potential of the base. When all is completed, Russia will be able to use your Nagurski under the largest transport and anti-submarine aircraft and bombers“—writes the Danish military intelligence in the latest analysis of threats. Thus, Russia will move part of their defense far into the Arctic ocean and will be able to detect in advance and prevent the threat of precision attack from the United States, before the enemy gets to the mainland. “In the event of a crisis base will help Russia to establish control over the sea and air areas in the territories, which go far beyond its own borders, “writes Danish intelligence. The analysis also says that the defense, which Russia is stepping up in the Northern regions, are increasingly beginning to include elements that can be used in offensive operations. “From this base Russian planes in a short time also can achieve the North-East Greenland, and with the help of long-range missiles or the support of air tankers — even to attack the base in Tula“, — writes the military intelligence of Denmark. The Prime Minister of Norway, Erna, Solberg commented on TV 2 NORGE, the Supreme court of Denmark about a Russian airbase in the Land of Franz Joseph. “It fits into the already known picture — Russia strengthens its military power, including in the North, it is faster, more mobile, she has more equipment and possibilities. But in fact it is for us, nothing changes. We just need to create a defense system that is tailored to our membership in the Alliance would be sufficient to deter aggression. We regularly inform our partners about all that we see in these areas, it is our task in the framework of NATO — to be the eyes and ears of the Alliance in the North. But to go into details, I can’t, “said Solberg.
