Chasing the Islamic State: Is the West set to miss the iceberg?

The rapid advance of the Islamic State of Iraq & Sham (ISIS), which now calls itself the Islamic State, took many across the world by surprise. Since then, there have been territorial gains and losses, leading many commentators to hasty conclusions and ultimately to policy paralysis...

Afghanistan: Militants Posing Imminent Threat to Central Asia (II)

...The situation is an imminent threat to Russia with its many centuries-long history of living together with Central Asian nations. Unlike the US or the EU, Central Asia is close to Russian borders, and there is a plethora of common interests to unite Moscow with the states of the region. Unlike the West, Russia never imposed its vision of democracy and human rights protection. Common security concerns have produced the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), an organization with teeth serving as an instrument to safeguard peace and stability in Central Asia...

Afghanistan: Militants Posing Imminent Threat to Central Asia (I)

The civil war in Yemen, the following intervention by Saudi Arabia to aggravate the stand-off with Iran, the capture of Iraqi Ramadi and Syrian Palmira by Islamic State (IS) – all these events hit radar screen today to distract attention from Afghanistan where the situation creep is gradually turning into a burning security problem to threaten many nations...

Afghan Insurgency Spreading North

Afghanistan comes to the fore of Central Asian agenda. The situation has greatly exacerbated in the northern Afghan provinces... Until recently it had been widely believed that the central authorities in Kabul were fighting the Taliban. Now a third belligerent emerged. Afghanistan’s National Security Adviser, Mohammad Hanif Atmar, has said that the presence of Daesh, or the Islamic State, is growing. According to him, the group plans to seize control of Central Asia and then move to Russia. The efforts to fight the Islamic State in Afghanistan are not enough to counter the threat...

War in Afghanistan Comes Close to Tajikistan Border

...The civil war in Afghanistan has approached the Tajikistan border. The fighting takes place in Imam Sahib District where the Taliban holds its position on the shore of Panj River... The fighting is moving from south to north. The Taliban forces control about 80% of Badakhshan province located near the Gorno-Badakhshan autonomous region in eastern Tajikistan... Evidently all the Washington’s assurances about the stabilization of the situation in the country are groundless. The mission set 14 years ago before the US forces were deployed in Afghanistan has not been accomplished. No matter that, the operation Enduring Freedom has served as justification for bringing US troops near the borders of the Community of Independent States...

Turkmenistan Confronts Threat from South

The US and NATO war in Afghanistan has come to a formal end. As expected, it resulted in further aggravation of the situation on the southern borders of the Commonwealth of Independent States. The 745 km long Turkmenistan-Afghanistan border has become the hottest spot. The Taliban attacks have intensified since the spring of 2014 to become even more threatening than before. In January 2015, Ashgabat started mobilization to last till the end of March. The threat is serious enough to make Turkmenistan build additional fortifications at the frontier with Afghan Jowzjan Province to include a 6 meter deep ditch and barbed wire fencing with 2 meter high concrete pillars in between...

Islamic State Opens Third Front in Afghanistan

...The US does not rush to recognize the fact of Islamic State’s presence in Afghanistan, but Kabul does not deny the information that the group’s militants coming from Syria and Iraq are operating in the country... The Islamic State would like to open a third front in Afghanistan (after Iraq and Syria)... In the south the Islamic State is trying to split the Taliban to make the group’s militants join its ranks... The leaders of Pakistani Taliban have already pledged allegiance to the Islamic State and are ready to contribute into the creation of Islamic Caliphate...

Russia has enough gas for everyone

The June 26 speech by Alexey Miller, the chairman of the board of Gazprom, at the annual general meeting of shareholders proved to be a cold shower for all those who hoped that Russia would pull out of Europe’s gas markets. Despite the fact that much of his report was devoted to Gazprom’s operations in the Russian Far East, the data Miller provided confirmed that Russian gas will not be squeezed out of Europe’s energy balance. Moreover, in the coming years Russian gas supplies will continue to play a steadily larger role in ensuring European energy security...
