    This is part of what I suspect is a hidden Russian strategy to accelerate the bankruptcy of the US by driving up their defence costs under pressure from their rapacious MIC/politician combo. In this case more on the Navy.

    Bearing this in mind a couple of $B might be a good investment. Forcing the US to keep a carrier in the Atlantic, there is rarely one there now, would be a huge win.

    The renovation/modernisation process of military infrastructure (barracks, air bases and so on) inside Russia is coming to an end. It would be a logical step to search for a few well located bases abroad and spend some money on them. And I´m not talking about some military empire here, just a couple of bases with a few hundred soldiers.

    Continuation of large-scale construction at the Khmeimim airbase

    NTV broadcast a video report on the continuation of large-scale construction at the Russian Hmeimim air base in Syria. The report said that "at the Khmeimim airbase in Syria, the Russian military began large-scale construction. Engineers are building new runways and hangars for aircraft and helicopters. To protect aircraft in the event of a possible attack, the structures are covered with special armored plates."

    Representatives of the 201st Russian military base in Tajikistan congratulated 108-year-old veteran of the great Patriotic war Rashid Karimov, who participated in the battle of Stalingrad and the storming of Berlin, on the day of rocket troops and artillery.

    Rashid Karimov was born in 1912. He took a direct part in the liberation of Kiev, Kirov, Lviv, Konigsberg, and Polish cities. He was wounded twice during the war. Awarded the Order of Glory and various battle medals.

    Rashid Karimov returned to his native village on November 19, 1945 and worked as a teacher after the war.

    Russia received a logistics center on the Red Sea. As follows from the text of the agreement between the Russian Federation and Sudan, signed on December 1, 2020, the parties entered into an agreement for 25 years. The document was published on the portal of legal information.

    They were withdrawing and removing the ammo in question until they were blocked by the Ukraine... if they open up a corridor and ask the Russians to continue what they started there should not be a problem but the peace keepers in situ likely will be a different matter.

    Apparently most of the ammo is old so subject to all the risks that go with that. One Russian official said at least half is not safe to move and would have to be destroyed there.

    Russian bases abroad: 102nd base in Gyumri

    Russia has a limited number of military bases abroad. With the American 800 bases scattered from Guam to Djibouti and from Japan to Bahrain and Afghanistan, there is no sense in "competing" in this regard. And it is not necessary. The point is different.

    This meaning is to ensure security in key sectors and directions for Russia. One of these areas was and remains the Caucasus. And it is there that Russia has one of its foreign military bases - the 102nd base of the RF Armed Forces in the city of Gyumri (Republic of Armenia).

    This base is in many respects determining the security structure of the region.

    One of the components of the Russian 102nd military base in Armenia is the so-called "black fortress", in which defensive positions were and are located, allowing to repulse the enemy.

    The plot "Polygon" on the T24 channel tells about how the base of the Russian armed forces in the Caucasus is arranged, how it can resist terrorist attacks and sabotage attacks. In particular, the correspondent becomes a participant in the operation, during which the personnel of the base release the taken hostage.

    The plot tells about the combat training of the military personnel of the base, about military planning and other nuances of service in Gyumri.
