Russia will strengthen its military base in Tajikistan with 17 infantry fighting vehicles, the Interfax news agency reported on Wednesday citing the military, amid conflicts in neighboring countries Afghanistan.

The base will receive new BMP-2 vehicles this month, Interfax quoted Alexander Lapin, commander of Russia Central Military District, will “significantly enhance the combat capabilities” of the units.

Taliban fighter jets have made huge strides in Afghanistan as US forces retreat after 20 years of war, a security headache for Moscow.

Russian tanks are deployed near the Afghanistan-Tajik border on Tuesday ahead of next month’s military exercises and Moscow announces more drills in neighboring countries Uzbekistan as tensions in the region over the Taliban’s territorial gains remain high.
