The state contract for the reconstruction of the Russian air base “Kant” in Kyrgyzstan will be concluded before the end of the year, said on Wednesday Russian Air Force Commander, Colonel-General Viktor Bondarev.
According to him, “Kant” has already been subject to some reconstruction. In addition, the plan for the reconstruction of the air base “Erebuni” in Armenia has already been approved.
As it was reported, “Kant” runway had to be reconstructed as early as in 2013; it was assumed that as a result the airport would be able to accept Russian strategic aircraft. Nevertheless, as it was stated last April in the Armed Forces of Kyrgyzstan, works at the time had not been conducted.
