Russia is alert about Taliban, has already made preparations on the border

Moscow. Amidst the terror of the Taliban in Afghanistan, Russia has sent military equipment to the border areas between Tajikistan and Afghanistan to prevent potential threats. Tolo News has given this information. Indeed, Russia is concerned about the possible spread of instability to neighboring countries. In recent weeks, hundreds of Afghans, including police and government troops, have left the country and entered the border countries of Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. The Taliban claims to have captured 90 percent of Afghanistan’s border with neighboring countries. Recently it was reported that Russia will strengthen its military base in Tajikistan with 17 infantry fighting vehicles.

Tajikistan is hosting more than 6,000 Russian troops at the 201st military base of the Russian Ground Forces. This base is one of Russia’s few military sites on foreign soil. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said earlier this month, “We will do everything we can to prevent any offensive aggression against our allies, including using the Russian military base on the Tajikistan border with Afghanistan.” Here, President of Tajikistan Emomali Rahmon, while addressing the Tajik army during a military exercise, said that the situation in Afghanistan remains critical. At the same time, he said that his country is fully prepared to face the possible threats coming from Afghanistan.
