YEREVAN, JANUARY 18, ARMENPRESS. Russia strengthens the
combat-readiness of its allies and military bases in the South
Caucasus. Alongside with the military bases in South Ossetia and
Abkhazia, which have common border with the Russian Federation,
Russia pays a special attention to the Russian military base allocated
in Armenia.

As reports "Armenpress", "Nezavisimaya Gazeta" states that on the
order of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin the
Government is engaged in the development of an agreement about military
and technical cooperation with Armenia. Previously by January 15 of the
current year the new officers arrived in the Russian base 102 allocated
in Gyumri Province. Their number increased twice during the period of
six months. Hence there are over 5 thousand servicemen serving there.

Therefore new professionals are serving in the military bases
and divisions in Armenia particularly in intelligence, air-force,
anti-aircraft defense, and many realms.
