    Russia has no plans to build new military facilities anywhere in the world similar to its naval base in Ukraine's Crimea, the Russian premier said on Thursday.

    Russia has no plans to build new military facilities anywhere in the world similar to its naval base in Ukraine's Crimea, the Russian premier said on Thursday.

    "I would like to reiterate that Crimea is a unique case that has evolved historically," Vladimir Putin said, adding there was no need to build military bases in other countries and requested "our partners" not to bother with the same kind of requests.

    The lease agreement on the Russian Black Sea Fleet's presence in Ukraine's Crimea, signed on Wednesday, extends Russian naval presence in the port of Sevastopol for 25 years after the current lease expires in 2017, and may be further extended by another five years.
