US modernize the army of Tajikistan

74
Tajik President Emomali Rahmon yesterday held talks with the commander of the US Central Command, Lloyd James Austin. At the meeting, according to the press service of the head of the Tajik state, issues of modernization of the armed forces of the republic and strengthening the Afghan-Tajik border were discussed. The talks took place two days before Rakhmon’s visit to Moscow.


US modernize the army of Tajikistan


In recent years, the practice has developed - on the eve of the Russian-Tajik talks in Dushanbe an American envoy will certainly appear. The meeting of Rakhmon held yesterday and his forthcoming visit to Moscow are “aggravated” by the presidential elections in Tajikistan. NG has already written that in conditions of a severe socio-economic crisis in the republic, Rakhmon is counting on the support of the Kremlin.

But he will not give up on Washington’s support, if there is one. Especially in the military sphere. The subject of negotiations is known. On the one hand, this is a condition for the presence in Tajikistan of the 201 of the Russian military base and allowing it to use the Aini airfield. On the other hand, pedaling the issue of the withdrawal of the Russian base, the transfer of the Aini airfield to the US and NATO (possibly with the mediation of India), the deployment in Tajikistan of other military facilities of the same alliance.

The first US training center was opened a couple of years ago in Tursunzade, which is 45 km from the Tajik capital. There is training for the Armed Forces (AF) of Tajikistan. At the same time, the republic’s army remains the least equipped in the region. Weapon and military equipment available to the Tajik army, mainly from the Soviet era. According to experts, the combat capability of the armed forces of Tajikistan is low to such an extent that they are not able to cope with external threats on their own. During the previous meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Bishkek during the informal CSTO summit Emomali Rakhmon, concerned about the possible threat from Afghanistan after the withdrawal of NATO troops, asked to speed up the provision of 200 million, which Moscow promised to modernize the Tajik army. But, without waiting for a prompt response from Russia, Rakhmon entered into negotiations with the United States.

Yesterday, at a meeting with American General Lloyd James Austin, he discussed regional security issues and the strengthening of the Afghan-Tajik border, which the United States has already been engaged in de facto since 2005. Earlier, the external borders of Tajikistan were guarded by Russian border guards, but today the question of their return is not being considered. As Tajik political analyst Sukhrob Sharipov said earlier, “Why should Russian children die in Tajikistan, because we only need help in strengthening the border’s material and technical resources ?!”. I talked with General Austin Emomali Rakhmon about the possibility of obtaining material and technical assistance for military and special units of Tajikistan.

Alexander Knyazev, an expert on Central Asia and the Middle East, told NG that "President Rakhmon did not seem to understand that multi-vector approach is for the strong and smart, and his regime does not apply." “It is clear that, discussing the price of the decision-making that is necessary, Rakhmon includes in it what is now the main thing for him: support in the upcoming presidential election. You can easily project the American position: Americans do not give guarantees in such cases, as the experience of Mubarak or Gaddafi indicates - they began to part with their “bitch sons” quite easily. Undoubtedly, Rakhmon will talk about his own guarantees in Moscow too, ”Knyazev believes.

The political scientist believes that Moscow should refrain from any guarantees to the Tajik president. “The real orientation on Russia in its activities has not been traced for fifteen years already - almost immediately after Moscow helped it come to power, establish a truce with the opposition and end the civil war. It seems that the Russian side needs to work more with the Tajik opposition, especially since it now objectively has more opportunities for this than Washington or London. But the range of these opportunities is narrowing rapidly, ”said Knyazev. In his opinion, Russia's policy towards Tajikistan, which strongly resembles, by the way, the situation with neighboring Kyrgyzstan, has been and remains unidirectional. “Using the methods of force and the administrative resource, Rakhmon might win the election, but this does not mean that he will retain the presidency for the next seven years. If Russia directly or indirectly designates support for Rakhmon, it will lose Tajik society and now, probably, forever, ”said Alexander Knyazev.

“By virtue of a multi-vector policy, including in the field of defense, Tajikistan uses Russian military aid and Russian military presence. But he also does not want to give up American assistance in the field of border security, equipping army and special forces. Not in the rules of the current leadership to give up anything. But help is help, and the trouble is that the authorities, having lost communication with the population, themselves narrow the support base inside and try to compensate for this with external support, ”Temur Varki, an expert on Tajikistan, told NG. According to him, a special theme is the border areas of Tajikistan. The republic is like shagreen skin: in the south in the Shurobad district Afghans feel at ease, and in the east the Chinese are settling down. Apparently, the authorities themselves have not decided where the boundaries of partnership obligations and relations of Tajikistan in the structure of the CSTO, in cooperation with the United States and NATO countries, with China end. “Therefore, the situation in which Tajikistan finds itself today is akin to dancing with three partners at once. In the official interpretation, this is called the balance of interests for the sake of stability. But the problem is that thousands of citizens of the republic are fleeing from this stability to other countries, primarily to Russia, ”Warki told NG. The expert did not rule out that after the next election victory of Emomali Rakhmon, the problems would be aggravated, which would cause another wave of large-scale emigration.

    Rakhmonov needs to meet with the head of the Russian migration service. You see, the question of the deployment of NATO facilities and the help of Americans will disappear by itself

        Rakhmon’s memory is like a cat’s. Onishchenko and Rogozin recently suspended railway passenger traffic from Tajikistan to Moscow. Only after that did parliament ratify the deployment of Russian bases. Now another flirting? oh, how you want to fill your pocket with American papers, even the requests for GDP are ignored. IMHO, for Rahmon such somersaults end in disastrousness.

      How do you like this? Tajiks and yours and not ours ...
      Russia can allocate equipment and money in the total amount of up to $ 150-200 million for the rearmament of the Tajik army, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said following talks today between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Tajik counterpart Emomali Rahmon.
      "In general, the program is ready: there is part of the property, part of the equipment is transferred and has already been transferred free of charge, and part will now be financed," he told reporters. S. Shoigu also said that the Ministry of Defense received an additional order to assess funding, taking into account the forthcoming in 2014. withdrawal of NATO and its allies forces from Afghanistan.
      S. Shoigu expressed hope that the withdrawal of coalition forces from Afghanistan will not affect the tasks of the military base in Tajikistan.
      "But in any case, we must take into account all the risks that may arise, especially since the Soviet Union, Russia has a rich experience of exit, and what followed," he explained.

        Maybe we should seriously think about whether to invest in countries that frankly do not put us in anything. America from the support of all and all will soon be torn and where Rakhmon and others will be after that I think everyone understands. Russia does not have and never had allies, perhaps only two - the army and navy. We must proceed from this in our foreign policy. If we are smiling in the face and working behind the enemy behind our backs, why should these countries be supported at all. We have every chance to become a self-sufficient country, perhaps in the world there are only two such countries. We and the USA. This must be taken into account.

            There was another unpleasant moment. When it became clear that the outpost was not a simple raid, but an almost full-scale invasion of the Afghan army, the crews of an armored personnel carrier and a tank of the Tajik army refused to move on. The armored vehicles of the National Security Committee of the republic turned around and drove back. The Tajik guard also did not want to help
            This is about the death of our outpost on July 13, 1993 ...

                  Tajiks are Iranian-speaking people, lives surrounded by Turkic-speaking peoples. On the map indicate the resettlement of nationalities, you get a patchwork quilt. And their interests do not always coincide, but it’s hard to live, no industry, no farm at the level of feudalism. The tops cannot cope with the threatening situation, the lower classes do not believe in anyone or anything. Cash income: Russia, which gives jobs, and Afghanistan, generously supplies drugs. America does not need it at all (we remember Kyrgyzstan), Russia has been led by the nose more than once, it has become more cautious. And what is bewildering: both the Russian Federation and the US offer military assistance when the Tajiks (US first of all!) Need the same notorious FISHING-let them work and feed themselves

            dear essenger! yes, you are right, we were lucky with the resources, and if you think a little about the ruler too. (I personally think that you were lucky with the ruler too). The leader should essentially understand the country's problems and, if possible, solve it. and Tajikistan did just that, declared open borders, populated itself scattered across the expanses of Russia and feeds the rest half, and the budget is simply tearing away. Do you think those 150-200 lemons will come for the Tajik army? I doubt it

    In all these "Tajiks" everything is bought and sold, including high positions. I do not think that it will be too expensive for Russia to buy a significant part of their deputies and ministers, and then let their next buy do what is needed, and not what was born in his greedy and corrupt brain.
    And yes, send all migrants.

      All of these shtetl ghouls in total are too gluttonous. All to buy - no resources will be enough. It is necessary to conduct a policy so that these princes know that any movement without demand will be punished with overwhelming cruelty. And that no money and protection will not save. Nowhere. Feeding them is pointless. They will only grow fat and increase their appetites.

    Migration policy in such cases (not only in relation to Tajikistan, we have many prostitution "friends": Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Moldova, Ukraine ...) is a good tool. I think you need to use it more actively, more painfully. And not to hint that we are using it, but first to bang properly, clean it up decently, and then let, if they think again, "come in large numbers" again.

      migration policy in Russia is the Russian government. who makes you let so many migrants into the country. blaming someone is always the easiest thing. So the Russian government and administrative authorities are interested in something so that there are so many migrants in the country. But what is the interest, ask your powerful. nothing prevents you from establishing a visa regime with all countries and thus stopping the influx of migrants. who and what prevents you

    Tajik President Emomali Rahmon held talks yesterday with Lloyd James Austin, Commander of the U.S. Army Central Command. According to the press service of the head of the Tajik state, the meeting discussed issues related to the modernization of the armed forces of the republic and the strengthening of the Afghan-Tajik border.

    This is a sure sign that Tajik guest workers will now move to the United States)))

    Taking advantage of the support of Russia, which Rakhmon used and uses exclusively for his enrichment and his associates, steeped in corruption, while the problems of a society floundering in poverty are not resolved and discontent is growing, Rakhmon has grown such a ... bitch that no longer fits in one Russian chair and he wants to immediately sit on several, helpfully substituted for him by both the States and China! So, perhaps, the Russian high chair should be removed from under it until the Tajik society has radicalized due to Rakhmon’s mediocre policy and you can still find in it forces that Russia can rely on in its interests and which will be more responsible with regard to allied obligations and they will not blackmail us with a reorientation to the States or China!

    And in addition I will say one more thing. You probably watched the film "Adjutant of His Excellency." The Tajik army reminds me of the Batka Angel's troops. As soon as amers and allies leave Afghanistan, the bearded men will go to Central Asia. Your guys from the 201st Ipograns, who are in Tajikistan, will have a hard time. And there are plenty of bearded men in Tajikistan. you can get stabbed in the back.

    US modernize the army of Tajikistan
    When is the withdrawal of amers from Afghanistan planned? It is expensive to take out all military equipment, so they look around who can help with the modernization of the armies from the areas adjacent to Afghanistan. (my opinion) If only all this multi-entry war would not end with a local war in this region, followed by spreading to neighboring countries. Americans simply do nothing. hi

    You are a strange person, Mr. Author ... have you really forgotten about the briefings? It’s impossible without them! The master must always direct his serf on the true path ...
    Moscow should refrain from any guarantees to the Tajik president. “A real orientation towards Russia in his activity has not been traced for about fifteen years - almost immediately after Moscow helped him to take power, establish a truce with the opposition and end the civil war

    The prospect of Tajikistan as a sovereign state, and especially RAHMON, is very vague and problematic. It is necessary to think of it ... being a member of the CSTO, discuss with the Amer the plans for the further stay of the 201st division, airbases and the transition to NATO standards in the course of reforming the armies and at the same time ask RUSSIA for 200 million dollars ... sorry, but RAHMON does not need to organize a meeting with Putin , and neuropathologists! He's a lame duck ...

    Perplexed Russians about Rakhmon’s behavior, I think it’s still true.
    Russia can give a damn about Tajikistan and get out of there. But I believe that it is better to fight in the event of something with the Taliban on the Afghan-Tajik border, than conduct counter-terrorist operations in Moscow.

    This is a big stone in the garden of the followers of "Eurasianism". I have always said and will continue to say that Central Asia has nothing to do with the Russians, it is necessary to fence off from it in all possible ways. First of all, it is necessary to expel all Asian migrants from Russia (they have nothing to do here) and introduce a strict visa regime so that not one reptile would slip through.
    And we need to stop raving about dreams and a great and wonderful "Eurasian" alliance, with all sorts of Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. These non-states belong to the outskirts of civilization and we are not on our way with them!

    REALLY, what Rahmon can get is part of NATO’s used / malfunctioning equipment, which is cheaper to give away for free than to transport to permanent locations. As a bonus, NATO will create technical support points in Tajikistan, bring a crowd of instructors to train soldiers and repair equipment. Most importantly, Western experts “REPAIR” democracy and create positions for further consolidation in the region.
    And, instead of purchasing the LATEST armament from Russia at preferential prices, Dushanbe begins to bargain on the deployment of the 201st Russian military base. In October 2012, Vladimir Putin got E. Rahmon to sign an agreement to extend the lease term for the base for 49 years on the basis of the right to re-export Russian oil, benefits to Tajik guest workers and assistance in the amount of 400 million US dollars (200 million in the form of oil supplies and 200 million for the modernization of the armed forces).
    But when he heard that Russian aid in the amount of 1,1 billion US dollars would be allocated to Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan realized (as true p.t.a.s.a.) that it had cheapened and put forward new conditions for leasing the 201st base to Russia: write off debts for 66 million US dollars, finance new hydropower projects and increase economic “assistance” for rearmament of the army. The 201st Russian military base, and ALL of Tajikistan’s CSTO partners, have turned into a stock exchange where Rakhmon makes dangerous bets - he himself and the future of the whole country.
    PS Then, at the same time, even offer guest workers ... to Detroit.

      A letter was sent to the editorial office of Ferghana: a woman, a citizen of Uzbekistan, went with her daughter to rest in Batumi and was unpleasantly surprised to learn that the “Uzbek” in Adjara today means about the same as “Natasha” in Turkey. Ferghana publishes this letter - and a commentary by the director of the NGO Society for the Promotion of Harmonious Human Development, Tsovinar Nazarova, who has been dealing with trafficking and sexual exploitation in Georgia for more than a decade.
      He held out his hand for dating, he asked where I came from. Hearing “Tashkent”, he winked with the words: “Does it look like Uzbeks are in fashion now?” Heraclius responded in a menacing manner: “Watch your tongue, you are drunk!” - “And what? There are now a lot of beautiful Uzbeks! ” One jumped up, another jumped up. They spoke excitedly in Georgian, and after a stormy and aggressive discussion, a drunken friend began to mumble an apology, hiding his eyes, and soon left. Batono Irakli, frowning, apologized for the incident and asked not to pay attention ... and suddenly a picture appeared in my head, clear to horror. I asked if he knew the Luka hotel on the outskirts of Batumi, and the restaurant next to it. He said: “Yes, everyone knows this brothel, and in that restaurant the Turks hire prostitutes. But why are you asking?"

      I cried all evening. Now the behavior of the border guards is clear. And the comment of the minibus driver. And the drunken antics of the spa guests ... And on the avenues and boulevards of the spa town, I began to notice how many around the "girls" with an Asian appearance.

The Kremlin will have to pay the Tajiks to join the customs union, like the Kyrgyz, both need hydropower stations! For the Kyrgyz for "accelerated entry into the customs union" they wrote off 500 million dollars of debt and even promised some kind of hydroelectric power station! Anyway, except for Central Asia, there is NO ONE candidate for the customs union! It's like going west of the Kremlin, going west, from Kiev to Yerevan, not to mention Chisinau and Tbilisi, even Minsk will leave as soon as Lukashenka disappears from the arena!

    Rakhmon’s memory is like a cat’s. Onishchenko and Rogozin recently suspended railway passenger traffic from Tajikistan to Moscow. Only after that did parliament ratify the deployment of Russian bases. Now another flirting? oh, how you want to fill your pocket with American papers, even the requests for GDP are ignored. IMHO, for Rahmon such somersaults end in disastrousness.
