“I do not exclude this,” the newspaper quotes Borisov. Look. - We, as you know, have a 201-I base there. Our political leaders will discuss (this issue) and decide. Everything is possible".

The publication reminds that in July, Vladimir Putin during a meeting with the Tajik leader Emomali Rahmon drew attention to the worsening situation in Afghanistan near the border with Tajikistan.

Prior to that, the RF Ministry of Defense announced the activation of the militants of the Taliban movement and the IG group in Afghanistan.

Help newspaper: “201-I military base is the largest military land object of Russia beyond its borders. The base numbers about 6 thous. Of military personnel stationed in garrisons on the outskirts of the Tajik cities of Dushanbe, Kurgan-Tyube and Kulyab. According to the 2012 agreement signed in October, the 201-I RNB remains in Tajikistan until at least 2042. ”

    Here, in fact, there is nothing to discuss. We do not need an infection on the other side in any form: either religious or narcotic.

      Is there a hell to discuss there? Can't TajikStan secure its own border? Let him not blather about independence, but do what smart people say to him. And on the border with Afghanistan, not 6 thousand is needed. There will be few 60. And in Central Asia as a whole with the orange revolutions it will be calmer, if not 60, but 160 or 260 thousand will be there. Also to me, “sovereign”, blea ... Yesterday they got off the donkeys, they can’t take a step without Russia, they are scouting around the world, and there, the “self-styled” itches ...

        Maybe, but he doesn’t want to, the country is poor, they get kopeiki. On the border, the border guards themselves warm their hands well on traffic.

          In Soviet times, it was almost possible to smuggle them from the Middle Ages into socialism. Maybe it will work out now. I saw it myself - the Soviet government, in our understanding, was not there either then, but there was a relative order. Buyers of various levels (from local authorities to the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Tajikistan) created the appearance of order. And the border was guarded, and the police somehow, but it was. And now - without borders - this is not a country - A territory inhabited by tribes ...

      Indeed, what to discuss. We already guarded it by the forces of our border troops. In this case, they suffered losses already under the Russian Federation (Taliban attack on the Moskovskaya outpost, etc.). The question is whether we are ready for this again. In any case, there is no hope for "locals"; they all "stay and work" in Moscow.

        You are absolutely right. The matter, without a doubt, is necessary and important. Tajiks themselves can’t do it. But how will the security of our children from attacks from that side be ensured and will the officers be honest enough there to not substitute their subordinates? And then, you know, there are corrupt ones. They will let them through themselves, and ordinary soldiers - as you want, so fight back. We have already passed, in my opinion. God forbid, if now everything has changed and there are more patriots and just decent people.

          Svetlana,
          at the moment, in Tajikistan it is not about GUARDING the border (ensuring the border regime and regime at checkpoints), but rather about BORDER DEFENSE from invasion.
          Such things are not carried out by PV, but rather large COMBINED formations with appropriate weapons.

        Sorry, what kind of outpost did they attack ?! Then they attacked almost all outposts of both 48 Pyandzhsky and 117 Moscow. Most of all went to 12 outposts of the "Moscow" PogO. And the blasphemy of the command of the detachment and the outpost is to blame for this. Just so that this did not creep out, the tragedy was “wrapped in a beautiful candy wrapper” and a legend was made. For some reason, it’s almost never mentioned that on this outpost there was a BMP-2 149 guards MSP.I " The hero "was not given to those who died, the guys were silent about the fact that the soldier who stood guard of the border made only a few shots from the machine gun and fled to the mountains, and then his" Moscow "DShMG found in the mountains and presented a fighter for the medal. They are also silent about the vodka, which they later found in the back of the "shisharik" ... Many things are silent about what!
        Some people may not like my words, but I didn’t invent them. All this was told to me by the participants of those events. I served 201 years in 8, of which 5 I spent at the border, reinforcing outposts. And with his unit in the spring of 2005, he was the last to leave the border with the entire 201st. A few days later, the outposts were transferred to the KOGG (RT State Border Protection Committee).
        It was unpleasant and painful for me to hear the truth about those events, but the truth is true!

    Yes, it’s not only a matter of terrorists. Drug trafficking is there - Mama Do not Cry. Hemp for a drug is not even considered. So strengthening the border will not be superfluous.

        Well, not really ... the air base in Kant will surely be attracted ... the Armenians have their own nuances on the border ... In Kazakhs, there is no need so far, but in the case of a direct threat, they will certainly attract everyone ... But the border needs to be strengthened .. and the principle if you want to do well do it yourself no one canceled ...

        If the Taliban understand that the entrance is closed, they still have something to do there ... Americans sort of decided to wait a bit with a conclusion ..

          they won’t get away from it. Drug trafficking and arms trafficking. This is their cow. And all the same, they create the appearance of the fight against terrorism, but in fact they help in drug trafficking and weapons, having at the same time watching and eavesdropping everyone in the region.

            therefore, we need ours there as a counterweight ... and the Taliban have probably already understood how our aviation can work if they ... the good news in the east flies quickly and the bad news even faster ..

              We need a project to arrange borders across the bordering countries with Afghanistan. Only in this case there is a chance to move things forward.

              P \ s, I generally get the impression that the Americans not only help traffic in the east, but also transport drugs in their transporters, large batches of drugs to their bases and from there everything goes to the consumer. And the money cuts and kills Europe and other countries.

              Germany, because of its convenient location, is for drug dealers, as they say, a tidbit. And this country attracts them not only as a market for dangerous goods, but also as an opportunity for its further distribution throughout Europe.

      Barack Obama decided to save by the end of 2016 the country's military contingent in Afghanistan numbering 9,8 thousand people. This was reported by an employee of the US Department of State to the American edition of the Associated Press.

      The reduction of military forces to five and a half thousand people will occur at the end of 2016. Now in Afghanistan, nearly ten thousand American troops are based.

    Crowing is easy. But to recreate what was destroyed 5 - 7 years ago ... Before the withdrawal of Tajik.-afg. The border was guarded and defended by 5 pogos + units and units of reinforcement and reserve. And this is to the number of not less than 201 WB. All units, units and formations had their own barracks and housing, cat. after the collapse of the Union, it was maintained, not repaired. What became of him now can only guess. In difficult living conditions, an “employee” conscript is much better and more enduring than a “working” contractor (I think the specialist will understand the difference). T.O. the decision to protect the border with the RF PV structures will cost, to put it mildly, very cheaply. And this is without recreating the rear and operational support. Moreover, the formation of the latter is not so much money as time and years ... Although money is needed quite a bit. Yes, and social benefits to employees who will pay there (in the present day, those who fought there in the 90s and were even awarded military awards cannot receive WBD certificates. Even Heroes received this status through participation in Chechnya). And again the question arises - at whose expense this "banquet" ... Although I completely agree: you need to be tightly fenced off from the southern mess. I am afraid of only one thing: the state will not tear, as in the 90s.

    After the Perdyukovsky reform and optimization, the 201msd were chopped up and mowed. Then they disbanded the SMEs and turned the battalions into brigades. Pardon, the unfortunate bath-and-laundry factory of the regiment, became a SEPARATE MILITARY PART !!! All the excess equipment was transferred to the Ministry of Defense of the RT. But the Tajiks refused to accept the trash that the regiments wanted to push. I had to pass the serviceable on time. It is not difficult to guess what remains with us. At the time of 2012 in, then still a separate GSADn (from 149 guards.msp), there was ONE banner for 18 sau 2s3 !!! I generally keep quiet about the condition of the cars! The machines themselves fought in Afghanistan as part of 998AP.A before this ferrous metal from 191msp they brought to Kulyab, two divisions of serviceable 2s1 (which traveled more than one border with Afghanistan) were handed over to the Tajiks. They handed over the transport ... Almost nothing was brought there after the abolition of the brigades and the restoration of the SMEs. Auto-dressing medroty - a kung on wheels. Rot! Running killed! There are no medical entrails! And so, almost everywhere where you can’t poke around. If before the l / s of vacationers the regiment transported to the airport (it used to be under armed guard), now everyone gets their own way. Patients in the hospital in Dushanbe, and this is almost 300 km? OWN GO !!! What can I say, even if there is no promedol in the medrot of the regiment in the state !!! And what happened, what to save?! At the moment, to the regiments, God grant me strength and enough funds to protect themselves in the territory of the unit!
    And you say ...
