December 18, 2017

The United States is to spend over USD 55 million “to increase fuel storage capacity, construct a parallel taxiway and upgrade the airfield" at the Kecskemét Air Base in east central Hungary as part of the initiative to deter Russian aggression, according to the AirFocre Times.

All in all, the AirForce Tmes writes, the U.S. is planning to spend more than USD 200 million to repair and build U.S. military structures and installations on air bases that dot much of Eastern Europe, part of an ongoing initiative to deter Russian aggression.
