Another batch of Russian military and military equipment was transferred on Tuesday in Dushanbe to the armed forces of Tajikistan to guard the border with Afghanistan.


Major General Alexander Kshimovsky, Head of the Main Directorate of International Military Cooperation of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, spoke at the transfer ceremony. RIA News quotes his words:

Russia handed over to Tajikistan a new batch of weapons


The transferred weapons and military equipment will expand the capabilities of the armed forces of Tajikistan to counter the terrorist threat, create a reliable barrier on the Tajik-Afghan border


Tajik side was transferred Tanks T-72B1, BTR-80 and BTR-70, BMP-2 and Mi-24 and Mi-8 helicopters, D-30 howitzers, anti-aircraft mounts, topographic equipment, spare parts for armored vehicles, communications, logistics equipment and a large number of small arms weapons.

In 2017, Tajikistan transferred Russian military products to 122 million dollars
- added Kshimovsky.

According to him, all assistance is delivered by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation free of charge as part of the provision of military technical assistance. Kshimovsky expressed confidence that the joint actions of the countries, military-technical assistance from the Russian Federation will allow creating a combat potential that can reliably protect against all existing and projected security threats in Central Asia. He noted that the transfer of military and military-technical assistance was made possible thanks to the political will of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.

Earlier, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation expressed concern about the situation in Afghanistan, where the number of formations of the "Islamic State" is growing dynamically (a terrorist group banned in the Russian Federation). And the Russian ambassador to Tajikistan, Igor Lyakin-Frolov, stated that there is no direct threat of invasion of militants from Afghanistan to Tajikistan, but in the long run it exists.

      We must be prepared in which case to destroy the camps and bases on the other side, this is more effective. Six months ago, an Internet talk was about regrouping barmaley from Syria to northern Afghanistan, the sum of the redemption of the Taliban and the number of barmaley were mentioned, if memory serves 8 thousand.A few weeks ago, Americans said they were strengthening their grouping in northern Afghanistan. that is, again, as in Syria, the American base for cover and supply, and next to the barmalei ..
      Before leaving Afghanistan in 1989. a rocket was launched along the gorge with the Mujahideen (point U or something, I don’t understand). A beautiful picture was shown in the news then - a car with a rocket, then a mountain of gravel at the site of the Mujahideen base.

      It’s a necessary thing, who would argue, but it’s very similar to the “Gratuitous” assistance of the USSR, “to countries that have embarked on the socialist path of development.” As a result, they didn’t send either money or help. I really hope that the lesson in the Kremlin is remembered

    Of course, it is necessary to strengthen the border with Afghanistan, but it is hard to believe that the Tajiks will cope with this. Fortunately, our 201 is still there.

    Another stupid Kremlin. Putin, stop wasting Russian money on independent foreign states! Independent states should live at their own expense, and not at the expense of Russia!

      it’s in vain that we defend not only yourself but also you with these weapons. if the terrorists break through their border to your very borders with the Kazakhs no one will stop

        Your borders are your problems, but your troops of the Russian Federation do not protect against drug trafficking from Afghanistan, and some of your border guards are completely stuck in the drug business ... You are an independent state, and independent states must live on their own money, not on the money of the Russian Federation.

          This is certainly correct, but the scrap metal that has long been outdated and rotting in the warehouses that it was handed over, of course, it would be better to give it to children and pensioners.

            No need to lie, otherwise they completely lie, along with the GDP! The GDP only recently presented Uzbekistan with 12 brand new Mi-35 fire support helicopters, while in the Russian Federation they are still flying on the Mi-24 ... Messrs. (Patriots) are out of order

                Yes, only recently Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan donated $ 750 million of GDP (such as wrote off debts, and who asked to lend it to the Russian Federation that there are no problems?!) You are fake patriots ... Judging by your behavior, you are patriots of Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan, but not Russia ... Isn’t it time for you to move to permanent residence in those countries whose patriots you are ?! Enough to rob Russia already!

                  So "presented" or "wrote off debts"? Whose debts, what years? What did you get in return? Will Ilim wag a sir again and shake the air?

                    And why did you get what to judge and this is with your rating, when the majority does not go to the polls because they don’t believe you ?! He himself allegedly gave a loan to foreign states suffering from Russophobia, and then wrote off his debts, having received nothing in return for the Russian Federation ... Oh yes, a visitor from Uzbekistan blew up the metro in St. Petersburg ... apparently as a token of gratitude ... your party is robbing Russia by exporting it in Uzbekistan money necessary for Russia itself!

    The 201st base must be deployed back to the division. Otherwise, it will be necessary to strengthen our capabilities there in a firefight. Well, whatever one may say, Tajikistan - who else will help him to arm himself against the barmalei who are right here, next to Panj and Khorog? There are people there who will fight back the Islamists, but weapons and ammunition here also decide a lot.
    After all, the same Najibullah fought back without us for 5 years, but Yeltsin even refused to supply cartridges. As a result, the alliance of seven took power (Hekmatyar, Rabbani, Ahmad Shah and others).
