Militants from the terrorist group “Islamic State” (DAESH-ISIS) are already trying to sneak into Tajikistan and could destabilize the entire Central Asia. On April 2, the Foreign Ministers of member states of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) discussed how to counter this threat at a meeting in Dushanbe. According to “Kommersant”, Russia is ready to allocate to Tajikistan the military-technical assistance in the amount of 70 billion rubles.
A program of joint modernization of the armed forces of Tajikistan, Moscow and Dushanbe was signed in the summer of 2014, but until now the volume of allocated funds was not known. As “Kommersant” had learned, Russia is ready to provide Tajikistan with military-technical assistance worth about 70 billion rubles in the coming years (about $1.23 billion at current exchange rate). This information was confirmed by sources in the General Staff of the Russian Federation.
