Russia to transfer over 100 armored vehicles to Tajikistan amid pending Taliban attack

Russia will strengthen the protection of the Afghan-Tajik border by deploying additional armored vehicles.

In addition to the supply of 30 newest T-72B3M tanks to the armament of the 201st Russian military base in Tajikistan, by the end of this year Russia will transfer more than a hundred armored vehicles to the Afghan-Tajik border. The transfer of military equipment to neighboring Tajikistan is associated with a possible attack on this country by Taliban terrorists (a terrorist movement banned in the Russian Federation - ed.), About which said the head of the armored service of the Central Military District Hanif Beglov.

Despite the Taliban's statements that the terrorist movement does not intend to escalate with neighboring countries, the risk of an attack on Russian allies is very high, especially against the background of the Taliban's earlier claims to Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Among other things, there is information that in the near future the CSTO countries intend to conduct military exercises on the border of Tajikistan and Afghanistan, related precisely to working out tasks to repel an attack from the Taliban terrorists.

To date, the forces of the Russian 201st military base in Tajikistan are quite enough to repel an attack from the Taliban, however, experts believe that the Taliban is unlikely to want to get involved in a conflict with Russia.

Today the Afghan media reported that the Taliban declared their Emir as the Emir of all Central Asia and Iran, they declared all our lands. This is how they will not stop and Russia is supporting these terrorists. It is necessary for the states of Central Asia to get together and create their own organization for collective security. The Taliban do not scare me at all, but there in Afghanistan the terrorist party Hizb ut-Tahrir is gaining strength, which in Afghanistan already has 1 million supporters, their goal is to create a radical Islamic state around the world

And why, after all, these are normal, negotiable men. You need to believe Lavrov, because he will not lie.
