After the withdrawal of the US Armed Forces from Afghan territory, the situation in Central Asia became more unstable. Therefore, in order to strengthen the border with Afghanistan, Russia transferred a consignment of military equipment to Tajikistan.
This was reported by the press service of the RF Ministry of Defense.
The Russian military department handed over to the Tajik side 12 modernized armored reconnaissance and patrol vehicles BRDM-2M. In addition, the Armed Forces of this Central Asian state received spare parts for armored vehicles, melee weapons, small arms weapon, as well as means of radiation, chemical and biological protection (RHBZ).
This delivery was made free of charge in accordance with the agreements between the presidents of Russia and Tajikistan. The broadcast itself was carried out in Dushanbe and took place in a solemn atmosphere. At the ceremony, the Russian Federation was represented by the deputy commander of the Central Military District, Major General Yevgeny Tsindyaykin, from the Tajik side was Major General Khisrav Bobozoda, who holds the post of Deputy Defense Minister of this state.
This is a reliable and proven technique that will increase the combat potential of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Tajikistan and will become another weighty argument in ensuring the country's defense.
- said Tsindyaykin at the ceremony.
The situation on the southern borders of the Republic of Tajikistan cannot but cause concern due to the fact that this entire lengthy section is controlled by the Taliban * terrorist group banned in Russia. And although the Taliban * themselves claim that they are not going to enter other states, this does not change the fears about the fate of Central Asia.
