The Russian Federation's command continues to deploy military personnel from Tajikistan to the war in Ukraine, according to the press service of the Institute for the Study of War (ISW).

Analysts, citing Russian sources, claim that units of the Russian 204th Akhmat Spetsnaz detachment and the 201st Military Base are operating in the Kreminna Forest, allegedly capturing "unspecified positions in the area."

"The presence of 201st Military Base elements, which are based in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, indicates that Russian forces are continuing to deploy some of their forces from Tajikistan to reinforce the war effort," ISW analysts write.
