In 2015, the Russian Ministry of Defense has launched over 1,450 military infrastructure facilities in the Arctic. The news was announced by Lieutenant General Mikhail Mizintsev, head of the National Defense Control Center, at a meeting of the Defense Ministry Public Council.

"We have finished delivering supplies to the military units positioned in the Far North and remote garrisons in Siberia and Russia's Far East," Mr Mizintsev said as quoted by Rossiya Segodnya.
