On June 27, the assistant to the head of Chechnya in the power unit Mr Alaudinov claimed that Russian-led forces found evidence that the Severodonetsk airport should be turned into a large military base of NATO.
We have all the information and evidence that the airport of the city of Severodonetsk was being prepared for a NATO base. It was supposed to become the main airport in the area that is adjacent to the territory of the Russian Federation, to our borders. Large camps with planes, weapons, and military equipment were to be deployed there. In fact, probably to prepare an attack on the Russian Federation.
This is another proof that if we hadn’t stopped them, they would hardly have left us alone. Their attack on our territory would only be a matter of time.
In 2020, the former Minister of Defense of Ukraine Andriy Zagorodnyuk claimed that the Kiev regime planed to create two bases in Severodonetsk and Mariupol according to NATO standards.
Since the beginning of 2015, the airport has been owned by the Luhansk Regional Administration which was under Kiev’s control. Since the Lugansk airport was completely destroyed as a result of the fighting and is located on the territory beyond the control of the Ukrainian authorities, it was decided to create a new regional airport on the basis of Severodonetsk.
Today, the airport as well as the city of Severodonetsk and nearby settlements are under control of the Luhansk People’s Republic.
