Maps to hide places

Logaskino was a military base in Siberia. Over 30 years Soviet mapmakers moved it around maps to throw off enemies "How to lie with maps" talks about how the Soviets would move around the location of military bases on maps. These maps show one small base (now abandoned) and the local river and how it moved around on maps over 30 years in order to attempt to confuse enemies

Why wouldn't they simply leave it off the map, of they don't want people to find it?
