  • Russia sent a stockpile of T-72 tanks to its military base in Tajikistan
  • After the exercise to shoot down missiles, the deployment of tanks stirred up
  • Russia is scared of Taliban influence in Central Asian countries

Russia has sent a new stock of 30 tanks to strengthen its military base in Tajikistan. A few days ago, the Russian army in Tajikistan had exercised with missile defense systems. The deployment of weapons at the military base is being seen as a growing threat from the Taliban to Central Asia. Russia fears Islamist militants may cross the border into Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan after the Taliban comes to power in Afghanistan.

Russia fears Taliban’s reach in Central Asia
Russia sees these countries of Central Asia as buffer states for itself. If the Taliban’s activity in these countries increases, then it will increase the danger equally for Russia. Chechnya terrorists can also create problems for Russia by joining hands with Taliban. In such a situation, President Putin does not want to take any risk regarding the Taliban. Russia has the largest overseas military base in Tajikistan.

Violence may start again in Chechnya
Since 2003, peace has prevailed in Chechnya, an autonomous region of Russia. However, Russia fears that the Taliban’s activity outside Afghanistan could infuse a new spirit among the militants. Even in social media, the supporters of terrorism are describing armed revolution against the government as the most suitable weapon of victory. In such a situation, if Chechnya’s rebels start attacks again, it may be difficult for Russia to stop it. Since, thousands of people from Chechnya are also included in the Taliban fighters. In such a situation, after getting victory in Afghanistan, these terrorists can return to their country. After their return, the fire of rebellion in Chechnya, which seems calm from above, may once again spread.
