Bortnikov: the threat of extremist invasion of Central Asia is real

At present, the escalation of the conflict in Afghanistan poses the greatest danger to the CIS countries, since it is fraught with the invasion of militants in Central Asia, Director of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation Alexander Bortnikov said at a meeting of the Council of Heads of Security of the Commonwealth countries yesterday.


Bortnikov: the threat of extremist invasion of Central Asia is real


“Now on the northern borders of this country are concentrated numerous gangster formations that are part of the Taliban movement. Some of them also came under the banner of the "Islamic State", which led to a sharp increase in the threat of the invasion of terrorists into Central Asia, ”Bortnikov quotes. Rossiyskaya Gazeta.

According to him, “incidents at the borders of a number of CIS countries, unfortunately, are not rare.” Security of the CIS countries, he said, is threatened by militants returning from hot spots in the Middle East.

“Having acquired practical skills in conspiracy, mine-explosive war, and combat operations in the conditions of the city, they create autonomous combat cells ready to commit terrorist and sabotage acts,” Bortnikov said.

The main goal of the militants and their curators is to destabilize the situation in the CIS countries. “In this context, the task of strengthening the external border of the Commonwealth, especially its Central Asian direction, is quite acute,” he said.

“The exchange of proactive intelligence information about the personal data of terrorists, their plans and accomplices should be increased. It is necessary to keep under constant control the movement of supporters of the ideology of terrorism within the CIS and more closely coordinate actions to curb the movement routes of militants to conflict zones and back, ”the director of the FSB said.

In addition, "it is necessary to eliminate the sources of financial support for terrorism, as well as to take measures to prevent the recruitment of new recruits in the CIS countries," he added.

Bortnikov also noted that in preventive work "it is necessary to involve leading theologians and theologians, authoritative experts."

“I am convinced that by joint efforts, based on the accumulated experience of partnership, we will build a reliable barrier on the path of extremism penetration into the CIS countries,” said the head of the special services.

    Still not real. Afghanistan under the belly. Not a healing wound.
    It would be necessary to pull the CSTO. Do not hide behind the figs. Let them close the gap.

        The threat has been real since the days of the USSR!
        “It is necessary to attract leading theologians and theologians, authoritative experts”
        Why should not these theologians, theologians, Imams tell their parishioners, their people that they are NOT ISLAMs, and NOT Islamists, but Satanists, terrorists, atheists, enemies of the Koran!
        And not just saying that they distort Islam, the Quran! The same Kadyrov SHOULD say so!
        And the fact that “Allahu Akbar” means “Glory to God!”, Because God is one!!!

          In the event of an IS attack on Central Asia, the patron countries of Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia will become legitimate targets for the CSTO forces

        Hey . Where do you need to start? For example, a member of the CSTO Tajikistan in no-no freely passes gangs through its entire territory there, then back.

      from another article comment, but again in the subject:
      NATO: Moscow could help the Western coalition to destroy the IS, but in reality it only prolongs the conflict
      damn it! and they are a little bit right - if Moscow helped the coalition of the allies of the Islamic State to finish off Syria and Assad - that’s how the war would end and the Islamic State in Syria wouldn’t be needed - they would call the most sane and controlled in an instant more democratic and put in oil-bearing regions (well or would not call names in any way, as in Libya). And the remaining 90 percent, after they finish cutting the Alawites, Copts, etc. "infidels", would quickly be evacuated to the border of Afghanistan with Tajikistan to fight the Taliban ... especially in Tajikistan ...
      Well, part of the most dull would have to be shot of course ...

    "... it is necessary to eliminate the sources of financial support for terrorism ..."

    This is the most important, but also the least practicable.

      Right, eliminating Washington and Arabia somehow does not fit into the framework of international law

      From Kant, it’s a bit far from Afghanistan, so that everything can be conveniently organized from there.
      More than 600 km to the nearest points of the Afghan border.

    Our partners are doing everything to destabilize the situation on our borders. They have been working for a long time and purposefully. It's time to learn from their experience and look for dissatisfied in Mexico.

    For real threats, a proactive response must be given.

    Director of the FSB of the Russian Federation Alexander Bortnikov revealed a great secret! Hedgehog has long been clear ten years ago that the bearded Taliban scum was created to later penetrate into Central Asia. Turkmenistan is the most vulnerable in terms of confronting its dwarf and non-combat-ready "army" despite its own, now, so to speak, energy ones. gas opportunities. Monuments were set up for the local two great bays, snow-white half-empty skyscrapers and palaces, hotel complexes on the Krasnovodsk Avaz, the Caspian coast. And what further are the Turkmens than defending themselves against bearded scumbags? Do not be angry with me Turkmens, I was born in Krasnovodsk, I know what I know.

    This means that it is time to create CSTO rapid reaction forces in the amount of 3-4 brigades, train and equip them according to the standard and introduce general control. To have a pair of bases and airfields of the first readiness category at the border, military personnel can be changed on a rotational basis.
    It is still worth seriously working as a government and the people of northern Afghanistan, somewhere of course you will have to help with weapons and money, and somewhere you will have to do a couple of dozen sorties

    In fact, the third world has already begun.
    Only here is the enemy difficult to determine exactly.
    And there are doubts about our CSTO allies.
    Yes, and let's remember how many migrants from those places have already moved to us.
    But in the midst of them there may be a dofiga of such sleeping cells.
    They only deliver weapons and a wave of terrorist attacks across the country will be carried.
