MINISTER OF DEFENSE in the Government of Serbia, Nebojsa Stefanovic, visited, with associates and representatives of the Serbian Army, the barracks “Momcilo Gavric”, in Loznica, in the settlement of Klupci, where works worth about two billion dinars, paid by the state, are in progress.
According to Minister Stefanović, the intention of the Ministry of Defense and the Serbian Army is to have a “full infantry battalion in this barracks, which will be completely formed in conditions that will be completely modern.” Of course, he emphasized, “one of the ideas is, if the state makes a decision to return to regular military service, that a number of soldiers serve military service here.” The works, in several phases, are in progress and the Minister emphasized that “all that must be done faster, because the state has set aside money, there is no reason for the works to be difficult, with a certain understanding due to the procedure and conspiracy.” The Minister expects a faster flow of work on the rear command, but also on other parts in that barracks.
In addition to the command, there is a building for housing, a runway, a guard, warehouses and accommodation facilities. The wish is for this barracks to provide all modern conditions for the life and work of soldiers, officers, non-commissioned officers and other employees. Everything in the barracks will be modern, from means of communication to armored personnel carriers.
– We want this barracks to be exemplary and we are making just such in Pirot – says Minister Stefanović. – In Loznica, we want to show the citizens that we are seriously counting on this area as far as the army is concerned. We want to attract new people to join the army. And the salary increase, for which I am grateful to President Vučić, is a significant factor in that. In this area, the soldiers have a tradition and they want us to develop our capacities and we want what the state once had in the Loznica area to have now – for military capacities to be maximum.
According to him, the First Brigade, properly and in a timely manner, built a warehouse for ammunition, the next phase should be completed by the middle of next year, and next month the construction of a complete heating plant, restaurant, dining room, soldier’s sleeping building, house for guard …
