Union border. For Kyrgyz-Tajik "clashes in the enclave" - ​​the price of heroin in MoscowThe new political year traditionally began with an armed aggravation in Central Asia. If last year attention was riveted to the Uzbek enclave, then this year to the Tajik.


Fergana knot

The fact that the clashes occurred around the enclaves is the main detail of this political event in Eurasia. After all, in fact, this is not a conflict between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. Political geography does not give an understanding of the essence of the conflict, but on the contrary, it aggravates it. Especially for a citizen who is not familiar with the realities of Central Asia, at least at the level of reading local media.

Some kind of Kyrgyzstan with some Tajikistan. Again, something is not shared. Before the eyes of a simple, and especially, a simple Moscow inhabitant will sail a Tajik, who plastered the walls in a philistine apartment. And the Kirghiz, which works as an illegal courier at a philistine firm. For some reason, the plasterer and the driver took Kalashnikov assault rifles and started shooting at each other. In general, some kind of feverish delusion or scenario for a third-rate Hollywood blockbuster about “Kirzakstan.”

Therefore, here is the second major detail: all these conflicts occur in the Fergana Valley. So, it makes no sense to consider Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan separately, simply meaningless. The only format in which peaceful life is possible in cities, villages, makhallas and enclaves of the Fergana Valley is the lack of internal borders and the external security of the valley itself.

The problems of the Fergana Valley are similar to those of the Transcaucasus: as long as Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan are not part of a single military alliance, the region has a high explosion danger. By and large, the events in the Fergana Valley at any time can begin to develop according to the scenario of August 2008 in South Ossetia. In both regions, a comparable number of the population lives, which is very dispersed.

As long as the Fergana Valley is not located within a single economic region with secure borders, there will be no peace in this region. Because when a large economic region is torn between different republican jurisdictions, the region switches to the smuggling form of the economy. And legal economic activity in the framework of the three-part Fergana Valley is impossible in principle: all republics have their own low-income and unclaimed currencies, non-integrated economies, different access to resources, mutual claims to each other, etc.

Accordingly, the Fergana Valley is located within the zone of political conflict of the national republics, which is why it is degrading. There is evidence that in some Tajik and Kyrgyz districts of the Fergana Valley the state has actually disintegrated into clan-tribal relations. To understand what is happening in the Uzbek jurisdiction of the Fergana Valley is in principle impossible. But if we recall the Andijan conflict of 2005, when it came to the shooting of the crowd from the automatic weapons, then, probably, in the Uzbek part of the Fergana Valley, the matter is also not in order.

Why the quasi-economy of the conflict of the Asian republics concerns us directly

The maximum task facing Russia and the Union is the security of the Fergana Valley as a whole. And not because someone strongly loves Uzbeks or Tajiks. The chaos in this region facilitates drug traffic to the North (in the direction of Kazakhstan, the Urals and Siberia). One follows from the other. Without security and a coherent economic policy, legal activity becomes unsafe and unprofitable, and illegal, on the contrary, becomes super-profitable. The impoverishment of the bulk of the population in the republics leads to political tensions and conflicts. Which, in turn, only increase the traffic of weapons, drugs and smuggling. That is, the shooting between the Tajik and Kyrgyz border guards in fact determines how much a syringe with heroin will cost in Astana, Yekaterinburg or Novosibirsk. And the more often they shoot, the lower the price.

However, at the moment, Uzbekistan has withdrawn from the CSTO and is in no way going to participate in Eurasian integration. Since Tashkent controls most of the Fergana Valley, it is impossible to guarantee the security of the entire economic region. Consequently, on the agenda is the issue of physical security of at least three economic regions - Kazakhstan, Western Siberia and the Southern Urals.

At the same time, we must remember that the Kyrgyz themselves and the Tajiks themselves are not particularly inclined to negotiate. Because both sides are guided by national logic: it is more important for them to show their militancy and readiness to defend national interests, rather than to ensure the security of the region. It is also important that both national capitals — that Bishkek, and Dushanbe — are outside the Fergana Valley. This means that a firing on the border for a Bishkek or Dushanbe politician is more likely a reason for good PR than a structural issue of regional security in Eurasia.

Therefore, whether we like it or not, the issue of security in the Fergana Valley is the problem of Russia and the Union. Especially Russia, which has military bases in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. By maintaining and strengthening the military bases in Kant, Dushanbe, Kulyab and Kurgan-Tube, we actually gave security guarantees to this section of Eurasia. And Russia, as often happens in stories, took security guarantees for both Kazakhstan and Belarus. After all, Astana and Minsk do not send their soldiers and officers to the Tajik-Afghan section of the allied border.

If the Union really has a security task in "our" part of the Fergana Valley, then it can be solved only by allied methods.

It seems that we have come to the historical moment when the Union needs advanced army units to solve special peacekeeping tasks. In fact, we need to form a Eurasian peacekeeping contingent on a professional basis. Who is to solve the tactical tasks of the Allied security in different parts of Eurasia.

Creating such a peacekeeping contingent will be an excellent integration project for the armed forces of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. Because only in union activity the union result is possible.

After all, the agenda is not Tajik-plasterer and Kyrgyz-driver, shooting at each other somewhere far in the enclaves of the Fergana Valley. On the agenda are terrorist bombers in Volgograd, as well as the price and availability of a dose of heroin in Moscow, Astana and Minsk.

    Too complex and winding borders of all three republics (perhaps the only minus in the USSR is the cutting of borders. IMHO). The time of friendship and brotherhood has sunk with the collapse of the Union, each with its own roof over its head and tobacco apart.
    Fuck you will come to an agreement with the national "elites", as each kishlak has its own buy. And if you do something, then do it by force. It is impossible to come to an agreement with the Basmachi. Aziyas!

      since each zadripan village has its own buy.

      This is not the only problem, there can be no union there because of endless territorial disputes. Only in the Jalal-Abad and Osh regions of Kyrgyzstan there are about 75 disputed areas that are gradually falling under the influence of Uzbekistan, thanks to the Uzbek population living in Kyrgyz territory. And there are about 140 such problem zones, and the situation there is gradually getting out of control of Bishkek. And if the Kyrgyz-Uzbek border is de facto absent on the ground in disputed areas, then the border of Kyrgyzstan with Tajikistan is completely transparent, not to mention the state Tajikistan's border with Afghanistan, through which anyone and anything can potentially enter the region. It is worth recalling the $ 1,5 billion allocated by Russia to Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan for the rearmament and modernization of their armed forces, as well as huge cash injections into the Kyrgyz economy. I just want to sing the phrase of the hero of the song V. Vysotsky - "Where is the money, Zin?"

        These 1,5 billion dollars have not yet arrived in the Kyrgyz Republic. They should arrive not in the format of the papers of the main geopolitical adversary, but in the form of armaments purchased from the defense industry complex of an allied Russia.

    This is certain. And this had to be done a long time ago.

    Another moment worries me when I remember that the CIA is behind most of the "illegal" drug traffic in the United States. Well, that is hosh is not hosh, but there is a latent desire to draw some parallels ...
    Those. it seems to me that the problem is much deeper than can be said in an article accessible to all. And undoubtedly (in my opinion), if it were the will of the Kremlin, all this could have been "sorted out" long ago.

    In other words, the old truth is dancing out: Seek out who benefits from it.

Of course, it is necessary to strengthen the borders, but it was in Russia that the akaevs found shelter with their brood, which the withdrawal of Russian border guards from Kyrgyzstan.

    The author has a bad logic - on the one hand, the creation of a peacekeeping contingent is an excellent integration project, on the other hand, neither Kazakhstan nor Belarus will send or send their troops to the region, so what is the integration here? It remains Russia - so what ... such integration is needed ... And what then is the price of the already existing CSTO, we will continue to produce stillborn structures - because no matter how you look, peacekeepers besides Russia are eager to sign up ... In this connection, we should not forget about what happened to our peacekeepers in Tskhinval on 08.08.08. painfully easy, the author is ready to dispose of other people's lives, sitting at home and not at all risking his ...

    Interestingly, most of the Ferghana Valley belongs to Uzbekistan, which is not a member of the Collective Security Treaty Organization; therefore, the introduction of peacekeepers to a smaller part does not make sense, but, according to the text of the article, is necessary.
    They give us a thought about the inevitability of forcing Uzbekistan to participate in the Collective Security Treaty Organization, or to send troops into its territory without his consent. Or is there something wrong with my logic?

    I put "PLUS" to the article for a good analysis of the situation, but for the purpose of the unambiguous meaning I do not see.

        They built a fence along the border with Kyrgyzstan, checked cars at the border, bags, as I saw it, they unscrewed the gypsies' panels in the car. At Kazakh customs, cars from Kyrgyzstan are seriously checked. Also, on some roads, screening is carried out for the import of drugs in the opposite direction. But something tells me that tons of heroin to Kazakhstan are not so much in the stomachs or on foot paths, but through control points. I don’t presume to judge exactly.

    By the way, on the same days, our (Kyrgyz) border guards liquidated 9 bandits blocked at the former border post. 2 had previously been killed by a hunter (not a local resident, but a Kyrgyz citizen) before he was executed. The killed man detained the illegal immigrants and led them to an abandoned border post to transfer them to the border guards. The arrest was made fearing for the life of the local ranger and his family who lived near the place of detention.

    It is reported that they had Chinese maps, compasses, equipment, masks - but there were no military weapons, except for a carbine taken from the killed hunter and knives (11 pcs). These are people of Uyghur ethnicity 20-25 years, video materials with corpses were shown on central TV.
