Russian experts will inspect a military facility in Germany as part of the Vienna Document 2011 on Confidence- and Security-Building Measures (CSBM), the head of Russia’s Nuclear Risk Reduction Center said Tuesday.

“The Russian group of inspectors is planning a visit to assess the military facility of the German armed forces in a one-day evaluation visit on January 26,” Sergei Ryzhkov said.

The CSBM is part of a series of agreements signed by members of the Organization for Security and Co-operation (OSCE) on the exchange of information on military forces, budgets and defense forces.

“During the evaluation visit the inspectors will visit the military facility in Germany at its normal peacetime location, the briefing will provide information on the relative command personnel, as well as the major weapon and equipment systems,” Ryzhkov added.

Inspection visits are carried out to verify information about military forces and plans for deployment of major weapons systems and military equipment.
