Russia has sent military equipment to the border areas between Tajikistan and Afghanistan to deter potential threats from the terrorist organization Taliban. Russia is concerned about the situation arising due to instability in Central Asian countries where it has military bases. In recent weeks, hundreds of Afghan civilians, including police and government troops, have left the country and entered the border countries of Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. The Taliban claims to have captured 90 percent of Afghanistan’s border with neighboring countries. .
