Export Of Revolutions A Serious Threat In Post-Soviet Space - CSTO Secretary General
ALMATY. April 19 (Interfax) - One of the most serious threats to the post-Soviet states is an export of revolutions, Secretary General of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) Nikolai Bordyuzha said.
"Today it is not only Afghanistan that the entire post-Soviet space is concerned about. There is a problem of the export of revolutions. The problem of attempts to intentionally bring about their elements," he said in Almaty on Thursday at a session of the Eurasian Media Forum on regional security in Eurasia.
"And we can see it. Today, there are recognizable people, exporters of revolution, the so called contemporary revolutionaries - new Che Guevaras - in the post-Soviet space," Bordyuzha said.
The entire post-Soviet space is concerned about a threat of renewed conflicts, especially in the Caucasus, the threat of destabilizing the situation in a number of Central Asian regions, he said.
Drug trafficking in Central Asia and throughout Eurasia is also a major concern, he said.
Apart from that, the rebuilding of a military infrastructure around CSTO states, new military bases and antimissile defense systems are also an alarming fact.
The CSTO includes six countries: Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.
