The rear admiral reiterated that the construction of the flotilla’s main naval base in the military town of Kaspiysk and the reconstruction of the naval base for a brigade of surface ships in Makhachkala are planned to be carried out in two stages, starting from July 2018. The end of all works is planned in the first half of 2020.
