It’s not an outright American military base like many on this list. It’s as if Mezhgorye is a completely secret town, just like neighboring Yamantau is a secret military installation. For years, HAARP was a jointly-run military base overseen by the Air Force, the Navy, the University of Alaska at Fairbanks, and the infamous Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA.
