Tajikistan gives Russia rent a base in exchange for military protection

Tajikistan gives Russia rent a base in exchange for military protectionDUSHANBE (Reuters) - Tajikistan agreed to extend the lease of the Russian military base for dozens of years in exchange for the Kremlin’s promise to once again support President Emomali Rakhmon, whose regime is being tested for strength in disputes with the discontented in the outback and in frequent clashes with the militants.

High-level sources close to the negotiations of the Russian and Tajik sides told Reuters that the expiring lease two years later was being prepared for signing in October: Dushanbe is waiting for the visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"The text of the agreement on the database is ready. It will be signed for a period of 20-29 years. Most likely, for 29 years," said a source in the government of Tajikistan.

"No financial issues are mentioned in the contract, that is, no one will take any money from anyone."

Official representatives of Russia and Tajikistan declined to comment on the progress in preparing the agreement.

A source close to the Russian delegation told Reuters that Moscow, which had supported Rakhmon during the bloody civil war in Tajikistan in the 90s, was ready to help the ally again.

"This (future) contract is about the 29-year free stay of the 201-th Russian military base in Tajikistan," he said.

According to him, the recent events in the autonomy of Gorno-Badakhshan had a significant impact on the compliance of Dushanbe.

Residents of a remote region in the Pamirs in August, after two days of rallies, made Dushanbe promise to withdraw from there additional special forces, whose clashes with militants led by a rebellious colonel of the frontier service claimed dozens of lives. The Pamirs during the civil war supported the opponents of Rakhmon. Rakhmon may run for another seven-year term in the November 2013 presidential election, but experts say that instability can undermine his popularity and is fraught with new violence.

"Given the recent events in Tajikistan, the presence of the Russian military base has become a necessary deterrent," said a Russian source.

"The Islamists are asleep and see that they come to power in Tajikistan. All this is aggravated by the possible consequences of the Americans leaving Afghanistan after two years."

NATO forces are planning to leave neighboring Afghanistan, and the West is negotiating with Dushanbe and Tashkent on the conditions for the transit of troops. Rakhmon emphasized his country's role, stating that an unnamed "other countries" would like to acquire a military base in Tajikistan.

Rakhmon and then-former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev announced in September 2011 that they had agreed to extend the deployment of the Russian military base by another 49 years, but did not fix it on paper, while continuing to discuss the conditions.

Sources in Dushanbe say Putin can make a stop here in early October on his way to Pakistan. According to Pakistani press reports, a quadripartite meeting of the leaders of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Russia and Tajikistan is scheduled for October 3 in Islamabad.

"While the possibility of a visit by the Russian head of state in October on the way to or from Pakistan, where in any case he will hold a bilateral meeting with the President of Tajikistan (Imomali Rahmon), is being settled," a Russian source said.


The base in Tajikistan has 6.000 military personnel stationed near the cities of Dushanbe, Kulyab and Kurgan-Tyube, and is the largest land Russian military facility located outside Russia.

The government of Tajikistan fears public anger against the background of persistent poverty and speeches in Arab countries and is seeking support from Moscow, an expert on Central Asia, Jamshed Kadyrov, told Reuters.

"Tajikistan has nothing else to do: the country's leadership understands perfectly well that being alone in the middle of such an important strategic node is not the best option," he said.

“The Russian military base currently represents a kind of umbrella that protects against the influence or aggression of other countries,” said Kadyrov, who recently moved from Dushanbe to Moscow, like the million of his fellow citizens who cannot find work at home.

Russia fears that the influence of the Taliban and other radical movements in neighboring Afghanistan, which has a common 1.344-kilometer border with Tajikistan, may spill over to the southern borders of the CIS, and sees its base in the republic as a deterrent.

Dushanbe has little own forces, the expert believes.

“The recent events in (center of Badakhshan) Khorog showed that in the event of a major hotbed of military tension, the country's military forces would be very tight,” said Kadyrov.

The Tajik army consists mainly of representatives of the poorest segments of the population. Small allowances for officers forced many of them to go to Russia - to serve in her army or become a guest worker. About one million Tajik citizens work in Russia alone. Local media reported that Tajik soldiers during the operation in Badakhshan appealed to the local population to feed them.

Afghan has seriously developed the drug business, they have soldiers more serious than NATO, there will be no amers, where will they look for other opponents? and the local population living near the base, begin that, too, can throw nasty things.

    The weak regime of power in Tajikistan with Eastern cunning is trying to protect itself. What could be more reliable and cheaper than a Russian bayonet and the blood of a Russian soldier. East is a delicate matter. The insidiousness of the eastern khans is known in the history of Russia. Their fear and search for a reliable defender, the Tajik authorities "in the East" are famously twisting from yelling "help", "protect" to "you can be, but on our terms", overturning that they are not dependent on Russia, but Russia is dependent on them ... Russia should rigidly set conditions of stay to ensure stability and security from outside encroachments.

    The execution was a demonstration ... on the square ... to be afraid ... in general, when the body arrived at the pathologists, they decided by the nature of the wounds that they had shot them with a large-caliber machine gun ... then only the investigation and questioning of witnesses established that he had been pierced with sharpened armatures. The body was torn apart masterfully ... he died within twenty minutes. Uncle was an athlete in his youth and was strong enough, and when his torn and disfigured was left to bleed, he found the strength to crawl to the nearest house ... he died at the entrance. They searched for the missing uncle for a long time, since the corpse was in that very additional morgue. They were buried in a closed coffin. People came to the funeral with placards ... something like "Stop the genocide!", "Punish the murderers!" and so on ... people in suits arrived and, saying "There is nothing to stir up ethnic hatred here!", wrapped up all the posters.

    From the book by E.V. Semyonova "On the Ethnic War" ...... "Yeah, they realized it! And when in 1993 did the Russians live at the airport and at the train station? And Kazakhstan sent planes for its Kazakhs and took out every single one. You know What then did this (unprintable) Migration Service tell us? Don't you know? Write it down! That there should be “minimization of migration flows” and that we are “an outpost of Russia abroad.” And my sister was raped on the street during the day.

    Tajikistan gives Russia rent a base in exchange for military protection

    There is a double impression of the news, on the one hand, it is good that the issue is settled on the 201st, on the other hand, nothing is free. Russia will have to support the power of Rahmon, which means that the migration policy towards Tajiks will remain the same, with all the ensuing "benefits." And a big smut - the Afghan border, "in a peculiar way" guarded by the Tajiks. Without its tight control from Russia, 201st will feel uncomfortable. I think in the issue of the border, the rahmon needs to be bent.

      Still, ALL these "INDEPENDENT" have understood this, at last ... Otherwise, you must wait for the roasted rooster to bite ... And the common people suffer, first of all. Karimov, unfortunately, will not understand well. He also needs to "make sure", as in 2005 in Andijan. And in general, ASIANS understand ONLY THE LANGUAGE OF POWER !!!

    Tajikistan gives Russia rent a base in exchange for military protection

    Not everyone is lucky like Tajikistan. Where can I find such a sucker to whom I will give a cot in the entrance, and he (insanely happy) will protect me?

    In our country there are pedriots, and there are patriots, the difference between those and others, only that the patriots participated in all this dirt. They know what blood is, they saw these footless boys, they saw the grief of their mothers. And they are for Russia, the one that is shown to them on TV, only on TV it’s not real blood and sorrow it is ostentatious, but you pedriots will be able to understand this only when you get into it all yourself, under one condition, you will remain alive. We do not need Tajikistan at such a price, we won’t pull it out, or a base for money, without any conditions for conducting military operations (we will decide for ourselves), or home, visa regime, border, or you are part of Russia, on the rights of the Tajik region, you can fight for your own and need. IHMO.

    If we leave this hour, as some "patriots" suggest, we will get such a hot spot at our side that it will not seem like a little. Close the borders with Tajikistan and turn this country into a second Avgan, just nearby, but what do you propose to do with the millions of Tajiks who are already working for us in the country and millions of refugees who are calling to us ???

    We will leave Tajikistan, turn another state into a hot spot, and then Turkmenistan, Azeibarzhan, Kirghistan along the chain, and so on, instability will come to Kazakhstan with millions of refugees and a bunch of other problems. And you don’t have to be a military analyst in order to understand that we are facing such a development of events.

    Who understood - explain. Is this Russia, or rather the army, or rather, our soldiers will participate in a civil war, protecting some Tajiks from others, protecting those and others from Afghans and Americans, in exchange for the fact that they will be allowed to do this for another 29 years? request
