    Russia ready to support Tajikistan in fighting against extremism

    According to Russian presidential aide, this issue will be on top of the agenda at the meeting between Putin and his Tajikistani counterpart on September 14 in the framework of the CSTO summit


    MOSCOW, September 11. /TASS/. Russia is ready to render assistance and political support to Tajikistan in overcoming the complicated situation with extremism, presidential aide Yury Ushakov told journalists on Friday.

    Talking about the upcoming meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Tajikistani counterpart Emomali Rakhmon on September 14 in the framework of the CSTO (Collective Security Treaty Organization) summit, Ushakov said the sides will discuss Russia’s support for Tajikistan. The leaders already discussed this issues in the telephone conversation last Saturday.

    "Our president expressed firm support to Tajikistani leadership’s efforts in bringing the situation in the republic to order, in ensuring stability," the presidential aide said. "Of course, we are ready to render assistance, political support. I think that this issue will be on top of the agenda at the meeting," Ushakov added.

    The presidential aide did not specify what kind of support measures he means. "This issue will be discussed by our leaders. If any help is needed, Russia will provide it," Ushakov stressed adding that he does not know "what direction the discussion will take and whether any additional assistance is needed apart from political support which we publicly discussed numerous times."

    On September 4, Tajikistan’s former deputy defense minister Abdukhalim Nazarzoda tried to stage an armed rebellion. Groups of Nazarzoda’s supporters attacked the defense ministry and a military unit, and after seizing arms and ammunition, went into hiding in the Ramit mountain gorge. Nine policemen were killed in two attacks last week. According to Tajikistan’s special services, 14 rebels were liquidated and 59 more detained during the military operation in the mountain gorge.

    Russia Deploys Mi-24 Helicopter Gunships Near Afghan Border

    Russia's military said it will beef up its force in Tajikistan, which neighbors Afghanistan's Kunduz province, the site of a recent uptick in Taliban violence.

    The unit now includes Mi-24P attack and Mi-8MTV transport and combat helicopters. The helicopters will be stationed at the 201st military base, in the former Soviet republic of Tajikistan, which borders Afghanistan. Violence on the Afghan side of the border escalated in recent weeks after Taliban militants seized the city of Kunduz, prompting a response from US and Afghan forces.

    "The military capabilities of the 201st military base <…> will be enhanced by helicopter aviation. The created aerial grouping will be based in the Gissar district of Tajikistan, at the Aini air base 30 kilometers from Dushanbe," Roschupkin told journalists.

    Tajikistan also borders Afghanistan's Kunduz province, where violence has escalated. The military base is approximately 200 kilometers away from the border, while the airfield where the helicopters are to be stationed is slightly farther.

    In Kyrgyzstan, a Joint Russian military base created

    January 29, 2017 in Kyrgyzstan there was a united Russian military base

    On that day came into force an agreement between the Russian Federation and the Kyrgyz Republic, according to which Russian military facilities are already in the country, have been merged into a single entity.

    Aims and objectives of the Russian military presence remained. The agreement re-prescribed order and conditions of the presence of Russian objects, the rules stay the personnel and their families in the country, taking into account the peculiarities of its legislation. The document does not provide any qualitative or quantitative changes. Four Russian military facilities - the air base, testing base on Lake Issyk-Kul, seismic and long-distance communication unit of the Navy of the Russian Federation remain in their original locations.

    Consolidation into a single structure should allow to organize a common management point for centralized management and more efficient command.

    The agreement is valid for 15 years and be automatically renewed for five-year periods, unless one of the parties decides to terminate its operation. However, no less than one year before the expiration of the document corresponding to the notice must be sent to the other side.

    The document was signed in September 2012, when the existing heads of military departments of the two countries Taalaibek Omuraliev and Anatoly Serdyukov in Bishkek during Vladimir Putin's visit to the Kyrgyz capital.

    The composition of the joint Russian military base in Kyrgyzstan includes four sites:

    Kant

    999th air base "Kant" (the city of Kant, Chui oblast) is part of the 2 Command of the Air Force and Air Defence the Armed Forces of the Central Military District (Amendment - in the 14th Smolensk the Red Army Air Force and Air Defense) is the aviation component of the Collective Rapid deployment. Task base - air support actions of military units of the Collective Security Treaty Organization and security of territory and airspace of the countries - participants of the CSTO. Armed with Su-25 and Mi-8 MTV.

    Military airport with a runway more than 2500 meters in length capable of receiving all types of aircraft, including AN-124 "Ruslan".

    Pilots base regularly participate in various international anti-terrorist exercises.

    Karakol

    954th anti-submarine weapons testing base of the Navy of the Russian Federation (Karakol, cape "Koy-Sary", Issyk-Kul region). The task of forming - the testing of military equipment of the Russian Navy, in particular, elements torpedoes without combat equipment and diving apparatus. In addition, the base is responsible for the search and rescue support aircraft base ships "Kant" the lake of Issyk-Kul.

    Kara-Balta

    338th Russian naval long-distance unit (p. Chaldovar, Chui oblast) provides connection of the Main Staff of the Navy with ships in the Pacific and Indian Oceans, conducts radio intelligence.

    The object is equipped with super-long radio station, transmitting and receiving radio centers, the central point of unified time system and antenna mast device up to 312 meters.

    Jalal-Abad

    17th radio-seismic Laboratory Seismic Service of the RF Ministry of Defense (Maili-Suu, Jalal-Abad region) conducts monitoring of nuclear tests.


    And what in return?

    As the rent for use of land that hosts the Independent seismic point, the authorized body for Emergency Situations and the Institute of Seismology of the National Academy of Sciences of Kyrgyzstan provided timely information about the coordinates, strength and time of earthquakes in the country.

    As for the conditions of stay of units of the Russian Navy, then for the land connection node (811.2 hectares), testing base (55 hectares) of land and waters, sea area of ​​0.5 square miles (171.53 hectare) annual rent is the amount more than $ 4.5 million will be charged in US dollars and is made in two equal installments annually.

    The document stresses that the Russian military formations are defensive in nature and are not directed against third parties. In addition to providing the Russian interests, it is also designed in cooperation with the Armed Forces of Kyrgyzstan to protect the sovereignty and security of the host country, including to counter armed attacks by international terrorist organizations.

    Military object enjoys complete immunity from civil and administrative jurisdiction of Kyrgyzstan and is exempt from all kinds of local taxes, fees, duties and other similar mandatory payments.

    Leaders of military formations of the right to hire Kyrgyz citizens to work as attendants. In this case, labor relations are governed by Russian law. Russian base makes contributions to the social fund in accordance with the Kyrgyz legislation.

    Rumors about the withdrawal somewhat exaggerated

    At the beginning of December 2016 zapestrili media headlines that the head of Kyrgyzstan Almazbek Atambayev is going to expel the Russian military base. The reason so count gave the president during his annual press conference.

    "Kyrgyzstan in the future must rely only on themselves. This also applies to the Russian base. That's all I accused - Atambayev put a US base, and Russia left. Keep in mind that on the Russian base was a contract signed from our side Bakiyev (Kurmanbek Bakiyev, President of Kyrgyzstan from 2005 to 2010 - ed. IA REGNUM), it says, with this year expires, then a military base was stay for 49 years and then be extended to 25. We have left only 15 years ", - said Atambayev, answering journalists' questions.

    These words in the media were seen as a threat to the withdrawal of Russian troops from the territory of Kyrgyzstan. However, the same day the head of the press service of the head of state said that "President Almazbek Atambayev is going to close the Russian airbase in Kyrgyzstan."

    By the possibility of forced withdrawal of the Russian military unit from the territory of the Kyrgyz experts were skeptical. Reportedly stated such an intention Kyrgyz leader today can hardly be confident in the fact that after 15 years of operation of the agreement, he will be authorized to decide such questions.

    "If we assume that in 2032 Kyrgyzstan decides to specify the CSTO airbase on the door - it is unlikely that this decision will somehow depend on the opinion of Atambayev. His term of office expires at the end of next year. Will he once again come to power - a big question ", - says chief editor of news agency REGNUM in Bishkek Grigory Mikhailov.

    It is worth noting that the presence of Russian troops largely strengthens the defenses of Kyrgyzstan, not outstanding achievements in equipping military equipment, and the training of personnel. Recall that in the ranking of the military power of Global Firepower Kyrgyzstan entered the last twenty countries, ranking 110 out of 126. According to the publication, in Kyrgyzstan there are 3 million able-bodied citizens, of which are suitable for military service only 2.7 million. Military action in the country .. about 16 thousand, and the military budget is $ 249 million rated authors counted 150 tanks in Kyrgyzstan, 30 self-propelled guns, 21 reactive volley-fire system, 159 artillery pieces and 6 helicopters, only two of which - drums.

    The Russian and Kyrgyz sides signed earlier on Thursday as part of Putin’s visit to Bishkek a protocol on making amendments and addenda to the 2012 agreement on the terms and the status of the stationing of Russia’s military base in Kyrgyzstan.

    As Kremlin Aide Yuri Ushakov said on Wednesday, the protocol specifies some provisions that will benefit the real functioning of the Russian military base in Kyrgyzstan. Under the draft protocol posted on the Russian government’s legal information web portal, Russia will slightly increase the area of lands it holds on lease for its military facilities almost by 60 hectares and the lease cost will rise proportionally by $291,500 to almost $4.8 million a year.

    The agreement will also define such notions as "an unmanned aerial vehicle" and "an unmanned aviation system" and will include some other amendments.

    Russian base in Kyrgyzstan

    The Kant airbase was set up at the request of the Kyrgyz authorities. The airbase was opened on October 23, 2003.

    In 2012, Russia and Kyrgyzstan signed an agreement in Bishkek on the integrated Russian military base on the territory of the republic. It comprised the airbase in Kant, the Russian Navy’s long-distance communications center in Kara-Balt, the anti-submarine weapon testing base in Karakol near Lake Issyk-Kul and the autonomous seismic station in Mailuu-Suu. The agreement on the military base is valid for 15 years and can be automatically prolonged for subsequent five-year periods. Russian servicemen in Kyrgyzstan are equated to the diplomatic staff and enjoy the inviolability status.

    Public Council under the Ministry of Defense visited the Russian military base in Dushanbe

    In the collective security system of the CIS countries there is a key link. This is the 201st Russian military base stationed in Tajikistan. More than three thousand of our servicemen are serving there. The conditions are not easy. It is not by chance that in the army experience a year of service here goes for three. The members of the Public Council under the Ministry of Defense decided to personally verify how our soldiers and officers are served on the southern frontiers, according to Sergey Valchenko in the material of the Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper.

    The object of the Russian military and geopolitical presence in the Central Asian region - as military experts estimate the 201st base. Moscow and Dushanbe are unanimous: the Russian military base is a guarantor of stability. Close to the border with Afghanistan with its complex domestic situation, the terrorist threat and drug trafficking. It is better to resist such challenges together. That is why a few years ago, Presidents Putin and Rakhmon agreed to extend the tenure of the 201st base until 2042. Russia is helping the Armed Forces of Tajikistan with weapons and equipment, preparing military personnel. Thanks to this help, the army of Tajikistan has grown stronger. It can independently solve many security issues in the region. This reduced the burden on the 201st base and reduced its number from 6.5 thousand to about 3.5 thousand. During a meeting of the delegation of the Public Council under the Ministry of Defense with the base commander, Colonel Sergei Goryachev, he said that the base was staffed by servicemen for 97 percent of the full-time strength. Almost five years ago, it was decided to send here exclusively contract servicemen. There are no conscripts here. This, by the way, nullified a very sore subject before - “hazing”. Among the contract soldiers — privates and sergeants — there are quite a few mature people, under 30. That’s not enough to explain what is good and what is bad. Everyone understands and holds on to the place. Good social benefits, high (compared with the average salary in the Russian outback) monetary allowances made the service on the 201st base very attractive. Structures that produce candidates for service under the contract, have the opportunity to choose the best. As the base commander said, there are practically no “complaints”. People come to serve consciously, well representing the nature of the service and the characteristics of life in Central Asia.

    The chairman of the Public Council under the Ministry of Defense, the chief editor of the MK, Pavel Gusev, during a meeting with contractors, asked about the possibility of getting a higher education or becoming an officer. He was pleasantly surprised that contract servicemen have such opportunities. According to the federal law “On the status of military personnel”, a contractor has the right after entering into a second contract to enter a higher education institution, he is granted additional leave to pass the session. The base commander reported, in turn, that this year about 50 contract servicemen wrote a report on admission to military schools. There is a selection of the most worthy. Member of the Public Council, Lieutenant-General Rafael Timoshev asked about the progress of the infantry in combat training and how often they are engaged in field conditions.

    “They only returned from the fields on April 5,” the base commander Sergey Goryachev said. - Participated in battalion tactical exercises. Now bring equipment and weapons in order. According to him, the unit received a rating of "good." Fighters train mountain training not only at the local Leur training ground, but also in Russia, on Terskol. Another member of the Public Council, director of the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies of Rusla Pukhov, asked the contract servicemen if all the payments they were making reached them. It turned out that the soldiers have no complaints here. I was interested in the delegation of the Public Council and this topic: how is the Syrian combat experience used in combat training of units that serve almost in a “hot spot”? As it turned out, this experience works in the 201st base at 100 percent. In the classroom, new tactics are worked out, the control system is changing, it becomes more flexible and operational. For example, in the location of the base recently appeared auxiliary control point. With the necessary means of communication. Such "field headquarters" appeared in the Russian army after Syria. Increased attention was paid to the new danger - quadrocopters. Practiced means of dealing with "not asked" drone. Created air assault posts. Opportunities for educational facilities and difficult climatic conditions help to prepare units for service in Syria. In Tajikistan, in summer the temperature reaches +50 degrees. So the units come before being sent to Syria here to undergo acclimatization. During a meeting with the personnel of one of the platoons of the mountain battalion, the public men asked about the housing conditions of the contract soldiers. It turned out there is still work to do. Office housing for all family contractors is not enough. Some people have to rent a house. The state compensates for sublease fees. But only partially. As the deputy platoon commander, sergeant Alexander Ivanov, said, he and his wife pay 11,000 rubles a month to the landlord. At the same time, compensation for sublease is about 3.5 thousand rubles. The rest is at your own expense. But, according to Alexander Ivanov, "a decent allowance for money, we can afford with our wife." The command as it may helps the military in the housing problem. The priority for the provision of service housing for large families. Two such families members of the Public Council visited. And not with empty hands - they gave on television to large families of sergeant Ruslan Sergazin and senior warrant officer Fedor Fedotov. According to Pavel Gusev, the Public Council pays special attention to social issues.

    -If life is not arranged, unfortunately, this affects alertness. Thoughts begin to work in the other direction, - said the chief editor of "MK". But there are no such problems that would interfere with the service, as the military personnel of the base said. Well, on the question that they wanted to say to the Minister of Defense, the answer was:
    - Give thanks to the Minister of Defense for putting the army in order.
    “Indeed, our minister today made the Russian army a world-class army,” concluded Pavel Gusev.
    - See, competition in military universities from 7 to 11 people in place. In the Krasnodar Flight School, where we were also, only among the girls is a competition for one place 20 people. And they want to be not just pilots, but fighters.

    And one more place in the garrison of the 201st base could not be missed by members of the Public Council. This is the Iversko-Narva military temple. Four years ago, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu presented the church with ten ancient prayed icons. Today they are in a place of honor. The abbot of the church Priest Roman is also an interesting person. He served urgent in the Russian border troops on the Tajik-Afghan border. Then three years - a contract in the 201st Motorized Rifle Division. It is on its basis that the modern 201st base was created. Now Father Roman’s service is different. Here is how he says about her:
    “Now our gun is the word.” Raise, inspire, guide. And there already, when the edge approaches, when the point of return has already been passed and there will be nowhere to return - how will the Lord grant.

    Established as a monument on the territory of the 201st military base, a rather rare sample of armament is the 36 barreled combat vehicle of the 9P138 regimental rocket launcher 9K55 Grad-1. Since the 1980s, these systems were in service with units of the Border Troops of the KGB of the USSR stationed on the southern borders of the USSR in the Central Asian region (c) Moskovsky Komsomolets

    Russia views military base in Tajikistan as stability factor in region


    Chief of the base’s Artillery Staff Alexander Levin noted that he situation in Afghanistan poses a threat both to the region’s stability and to international security

    DUSHANBE, April 18. /TASS/. The joint actions by Russia’s 201st military base in Tajikistan and the Tajik security agencies are preventing the spread of international terrorism in Central Asia while the military base has become a restraining factor for forces seeking the region’s destabilization, Chief of the base’s Artillery Staff Alexander Levin said on Thursday.

    "The joint actions by the Russian base, units of the Defense Ministry and other security structures of Tajikistan are becoming a guarantor of peace and stability in the region, an obstacle on the way of the spread of international terrorism and Islamist fundamentalism in the Central Asian region," he said at a roundtable discussion on the state and prospects of military and military-technical cooperation between Russia and Tajikistan.

    "This has started to play a more significant role at a time when the NATO coalition forces are edging out a part of Afghan militants to the north of the country, towards Tajikistan’s southern borders," he said.

    The situation in Afghanistan poses a threat both to the region’s stability and to international security, he noted.

    "Extremism, be it religious or political, and, all the more so, religious and political simultaneously, is a problem not only for Central Asian states but for the entire world," he explained, adding that in this situation the presence of the Russian military base in Tajikistan is a restraining factor for third forces seeking destabilization in the region.

    The Russian military base’s representative stressed that Russia was providing assistance to Tajikistan in personnel training and was suppling munitions, armament and military hardware for Tajikistan’s armed forces as part of bilateral military and technical cooperation. He recalled that in February 2019, Russia transferred air defense systems worth $9 million to Tajikistan on a gratuitous basis and in December 2017 handed over small arms, artillery guns and the armor, helicopters, communications means and air defense systems, medical and topographic equipment.

    The military base’s representative named the joint reconstruction and further use of the Ainy aerodrome in the interests of the armed forces of Russia and Tajikistan and the training of specialists on the premises of the Nurek optical and electronic center for space research as the promising areas of bilateral military and technical cooperation.

    The 201st military base stationed in Tajikistan is Russia’s largest military facility outside its borders. It is stationed in Dushanbe and Bokhtar. Under the agreement signed in October 2012, the Russian military base will stay in Tajikistan until 2042.

    Russian military specialists train over 1,000 personnel for Tajikistani army


    MOSCOW, July 30. /TASS/. /TASS/. Over a thousand junior specialists have been trained for the Tajikistani army at the Russian 201st military base in the Central Asian republic, Russia’s Central Military District said in a statement on Tuesday.
