200 bases? That's a mere fraction of the total.

There are at least 1000 US military bases in the USA alone. Outside of US, I think the number is around 600 military bases, though counting them is hard because the Pentagon and Congress try hard to hide the number/funding cost.

Nothing published by a Russian government owned propaganda website has any credibility at all. It is all self-serving Russian spin all the time at that place. They are the very definition of 'fake news' (more so than even Fox).
