Dump, not an airfield: the media criticized the Russian military airfield for 9,2 billion rubles

The media criticized the construction of a military airfield in Voronezh.

According to the Russian edition "Military Review", despite the fact that the construction of a military airfield in Voronezh has been under way since 2013, and for this purpose 9,2 billion rubles were allocated from the state budget, the place for the basing of combat aircraft is more like a dump, than a strategic military facility.

“We shot our first two materials in the near edge of the airfield. In principle, the picture was sufficient to draw conclusions that everything is bad. But even she did not give, it turns out, a complete picture of how sad everything really is. <...> If you go to the end of the strip, everything will be no less "joyful." At best, taxiways are filled with the first layer of gravel, at worst - just sand. ”, - reports the publication "Military Review", showing the relevant photos.

Actual, as experts note, the site is more like a dump of building materials than a full-fledged military facility, and, as experts note, even in the case of construction, it will take at least 5 years to complete all the works.
