    Putin submits protocol on drone use at Russia’s military base in Kyrgyzstan to parliament


    The document is to eliminate discrepancies between Russian and Kyrgyz laws on the use of unmanned aerial aircraft

    MOSCOW, December 26. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has submitted a protocol to the State Duma (the lower house of parliament), which will make it possible to deploy units of unmanned aerial vehicles to the Russian military base in Kyrgyzstan. The document has been included into the State Duma’s digital database.

    "The protocol adds terms concerning unmanned aerial systems and unmanned aerial vehicles to the relevant agreement, eliminates any discrepancies between Russian and Kyrgyz laws on the use of unmanned aerial aircraft, and lays down rules for arranging the flights of Russian unmanned aerial vehicles and aircraft in Kyrgyzstan’s airspace," an explanatory note said. In particular, once the protocol enters into force, Moscow will have a chance "to deploy unmanned aerial vehicles to the Russian military base and start using them."

    In addition, the document points out that a joint inventory, which was conducted when Russia was provided with a temporary right to use the military base’s land, found that the actual size of the land was inconsistent with that enshrined in a bilateral agreement, exceeding it by 58.32 hectares. In this regard, the protocol "sets a new (higher) annual rent for Russia’s use of the land and a segment of the local water area, which will amount to $4,794,095." The Russian Defense Ministry will use the funds it receives from the federal budget every year to pay the rent.

    The protocol also says that if Russia shoulders the cost of renewing the artificial runway pavement at the Kant airfield, which Bishkek handed over to Moscow for temporary use, then the property right on those permanent improvements will belong to Russia, but if the agreement is terminated, it will be transferred to Kyrgyzstan.

    "Two Orlan-10 multi-purpose drones will arrive before the end of 2020 to further arm the drone squad. Their employment will raise the efficiency of … army and attack aviation in conducting combat operations and joint drills," the press office said in a statement.

    On February 18, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law on ratifying a protocol on amendments to the agreement between Russia and Kyrgyzstan on Russia’s integrated military base that will make it possible to deploy a squad of unmanned aerial vehicles at the base. The agreement was ratified by Kyrgyzstan’s parliament on June 12.

    Russia’s integrated Kant airbase is an air component of the CSTO (Collective Security Treaty Organization) Rapid Reaction Force and accomplishes the missions of providing security on the territory and in the airspace of the CSTO member states, including Kyrgyzstan. The Kant airbase operates Su-25 attack aircraft and Mi-8 helicopters.

    Russia’s Central Military District is based on the territory of the Volga, Urals and Siberian integrated federal districts and 29 Russian regions. Structurally, the Central Military District also includes some overseas facilities: the 201st military base in Tajikistan, the Kant integrated military base in Kyrgyzstan and units stationed on the territory of Kazakhstan.
