Islamabad: Days after the Russian forces took control of strategic Severodonetsk region, the assistant to the head of Chechnya in the power unit Mr Alaudinov has claimed that Russian-led forces have found evidence that the Severodonetsk airport was being prepared to be ‘a large military base of NATO’.
“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,” Alaudinov claimed.
“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,” report quoted him saying.
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.
Today, the airport as well as the city of Severodonetsk and nearby settlements are under control of the Luhansk People’s Republic.
