Russia Opens Transit Base for NATO Afghan Supply, Interfax Says

Sept. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Russia opened an airbase as a transit point for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to transport supplies from Afghanistan, Interfax reported.

The base is up and running and Russia is awaiting confirmation from NATO of the date they wish to start using the facility, the Russian president’s special envoy to Afghanistan, Zamir Kabulov, was cited as saying by the Moscow-based news service.

NATO won’t be permitted to station any personnel at the airbase in Ulyanovsk, a city about 900 kilometers (560 miles) east of Moscow, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in April.
