The Kremlin is trying to use the resources of Central Asian countries in the war against Ukraine. First of all, the Russian Federation is interested in the possibility of replenishing stocks of Soviet ammunition and spare parts for military equipment. Recently, the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation of the Russian Federation turned to the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Tajikistan with a request for the transfer of 220-mm rockets to the Uragan MSV. The Russians are also interested in ammunition for the 203-mm self-propelled gun "Pion" and UTD-20 engines for BMP-1 and BMP-2, which are stored in large quantities in military warehouses in Tajikistan.

Retired soldiers and employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Tajikistan receive offers to sign a contract with the Soviet Union and participate in the war against Ukraine.

A recruitment campaign is underway in the Kyrgyz Republic. In the chat of Bishkek Higher Military School graduates, messages are received with offers to sign contracts with the Soviet Union or one of the private military companies. Similar recruitment messages are distributed throughout the republic in professional chat rooms of former military personnel and employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
