    Or maybe they might think the USAF might still be using old maps and think there is a Chinese embassy somewhere there... Embarassed

    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.

"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.

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.

    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.

    Russia's Defense Ministry will strengthen its grouping in Tajikistan with attack and military transport helicopters, the official representative of Russia's Central Military District Yaroslav Roschupkin told journalists on Wednesday.

    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.

    The 201st military base is the largest Russian Ground Forces base outside of Russia. The base is currently located on the outskirts of Tajikistan's capital, Dushanbe. The base also takes part in providing Tajikistan's military with compatible weaponry and military-technical cooperation.

    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.

    Russia has previously increased security in the country through regular drills together with Tajikistan's military. The latest large scale exercise took place in May 2015 with the participation of the Collective Security Treaty Organization's (CSTO) rapid reaction forces.

    nothing to do with Russian military bases, however.,

    Tajikistan has Banned Russian endings in surnames

    It seems USAID and NGOs have been working double time to erode Russia's remaining influence in the post soviet space, there was another article several years ago where Kazakhstan reportedly planned to switch their alphabet from Cyrilic to English. I wish Russia can reverse this obvious sabotage and impose more Russufication + Christianization of the former soviet union territories

    x100

    NGO's do not make such obvious moves as it will put them in the spotlights. This was all thanks to that dictator they got. Not surprising really. And no, this isn't happening in Kazakhstan. Tajikistan is a hellhole all on its own.

    Unfortunately, Russia has to work with them in order to prevent terrorism from spreading to Russia.

    What a stupid thing. I always were astounded by Tajiks. Some of them look like white russians but they still are mongoloids in their heads (no offence to Mongolians) Some of their traditions makes Borat look good. Unibrow is also popular there.
