In the wake of the Ukrainian war, Russia’s “back gardens” are tense

Forces from the two former Soviet republics clashed over a border dispute from 14-16 September in which tanks, mortars, artillery, and attack drones were used to target border military outposts and residential communities, killing at least 54.

Border issues in Central Asia largely date back to the Soviet era, when Moscow tried to divide the region among groups whose residential areas were often located among other ethnic areas.

Kyrgyzstan also said it had evacuated nearly 137,000 from the conflict zone.

Tajikistan has not released any official casualty figures, but security sources said 30 people were killed in the past week.

The two countries host Russian military bases and have close ties with Moscow, which this week called for a cessation of hostilities.

The renewed clashes between the two sides came, at a pace similar to that between Armenia and Azerbaijan, while some saw it as additional pressure on Russia’s fronts, in light of the changes imposed by the Ukrainian war in the international conflict equation.
