The Russian authorities undertake unprecedented measures on reinforcement of the Eastern military district. New military infrastructure will occur in the Far East.

The authorities will carry out modernization of the army and re-equip soldiers, Colonel General Sergey Surovikin, commander of the Eastern Military District claimed.
