military base of the US armed forces "camp Bondsteel"; multinational contingent in the framework of the NATO mission "forces for Kosovo" (3,9 thousand people).
The size of the American contingent is about 670 people (as part of the Kosovo Force).
Immediately after the end of operation Merciful angel, it became clear that the US had come to the South of Serbia for a long time. They immediately began to build a base "Bondsteel" in Kosovo. They say that this is the most expensive and most secret Pentagon project in the Balkans. According to various estimates, "Bondsy" worth up to 500 million dollars. There are about 300 objects here. Analysts in the United States themselves until recently assured everyone that "bondstil" is the most important American "interest" in Europe. A few years ago, there were 50,000 soldiers and officers in Kosovo. The Pentagon had planned to make "Bondsteel", the main European military center. There was also an idea to turn bondstil and the nearby camp Monteys base into a European center for US Marines. But times are changing. Recently, the Belgrade newspaper Politika published a special report by its correspondent Miroslav Lazanski, who visited the bondstil base and spent several hours there. The Americans showed the Serbian journalist the base and told him that now there are only 720 us soldiers and officers on Bondstil. Plus 510 military personnel from Poland, Ukraine, Turkey, Romania, Armenia, Switzerland, Slovenia, Croatia, France and Germany. There is also a platform for helicopters and hangars for their repair. They also showed the journalist from Belgrade the drones that are launched into the case. A team of scouts works on the base, which is engaged in collecting various information. The main thing is electronic intelligence. It is modern spy technology that allows Americans to be "ears and eyes" in the Balkans. Naturally, they try not to talk about this, especially with journalists.
