Russian radio locater functioning in Gabal, Azerbaijan is serious strategic object for Russia abroad. As newspaper Kommersant reports Azerbaijan asks for an increasing price for the lease from USD 7 mln annually up to USD 15 mln. Moscow is categorically against paying this and is planning to send a special group of negotiators to Azerbaijan in the near future. Russia reports that the lease term is from 2012-2025. Anatoly Serdukov stated that Russian plans to modernize radio locaters in Gabal.
