    That's right, we should not forget about this direction.
    Actually, our troops there are the only factor of stability. Tajik, hmm, the army is unlikely to be able to give a serious rebuff if the next group of fanatics wants to arrange an ISIS branch of the Central Asian spill.

    All is correct. It is necessary to strengthen its influence in the former Central Asian republics, and for this, first of all, you need to have a powerful military group. And make the local rulers want her there. You can certainly promote your goods and conduct full-scale trade, but it’s always better when the trader is sure that his soldier with arms in his hands will protect him and knowing that you have a powerful state. And most importantly, such resources are concentrated there that we will better control them with local peoples than we Americans or Chinese.

      Yes, actually, nothing - just in the Moscow Region a couple of times the signboard and staff of the 201st division were changed. smile
      There was the 201st motorized rifle Gatchina twice the Red Banner Division.
      In 2004 they made the 201st Gatchina Order of Zhukov twice the Red Banner Military Base.
      In 2009, the base was transferred to brigade staff, reducing regiments to battalions.
      In 2014, Shoigu announced the return of the division’s base and deployment of battalions to the regiments.

    "Backward trains from the territory of the republic to Russia exported the same number of samples of equipment of earlier modifications," said Roshchupkin. "

    I consider this part of the note to be the most significant. There is nothing for the descendants of the great Iskander Macedoni to donate equipment. They did not work, and did not deserve.

    But this is absolutely correct, one must be prepared for everything, despite the whining of NATO members. Their main clown is already indignant at how our troops at home dared to conduct an audit. It’s a pity we don’t know the electronic address, otherwise we would have written a letter to him from the Ural Cossacks, like the Cossacks had in their time.
