"Army of Turan": Turkey intends to create a new military bloc to counterbalance Russia

In Turkish political circles are actively discussing a plan for a military alliance between Turkey and a number of nearby Central Asian states and the formation of the so-called "army of Turan" - a powerful military force capable of opposing common enemies under the leadership of Ankara.

Such thoughts wander in the minds of Turkish political scientists against the background of the escalation of hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh, during which Ankara provides unequivocal support to Baku - this may be the first step in the creation of the "Turan army" by the Turks.

The ideas of a pan-Turkist state have been expressed to one degree or another by politicians since the end of the century before last. The latest surge of such sentiments is associated with Turkey's participation in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict on the side of Azerbaijan. Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, as well as the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, unrecognized by the world community, are named among the likely allies of the Turks in the "Turan army".

Considering Ankara's increased activity in regions of the world that are sensitive for the Kremlin, be it Syria, Libya or the South Caucasus, there is no doubt that such a military bloc is anti-Russian - Turkey has long and purposefully been acting in opposition to Russia and its interests.

    the Turks have everything in chocolate with Greece, France and Israel? but some "expert" has no doubts ... apparently, because of the independent actions of China, Russia and Turkey, the reins fell under the tail.

    Brad if it's true. Elitka in these Central Asian republics is useless, they not only destroyed the education system, economy and civilizational core, but also raised nationalists and an outspoken generation of cattle. If the Turks want to realize their plans, then they must first cut this elitka together with their families so that they do not interfere. Yes, not to squeeze out of the country, but to cut it out. There is no need to leave the "white movement" in your rear. Then, on an empty field, they can at least create their own version of the USSR. But again, according to the experience of the present USSR, these republics are outright ballast for any large country, incapable of living for the future, but only eating up the present.

    Among the likely allies of the Turks in the "army of Turan" they name Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan,

    In Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and further down the list "they sleep and see how it would be better for them to lie under the Turks." They wrote such nonsense that the author even hesitated to subscribe to the article. In post-Soviet Central Asia, they know very well the value of the words of the Turks, their ambitions and, sorry, "bare jop" in the sense of the economy.

      What to do, the level of general experts is not high. Apparently the goal was to "catch up with horror" to tell how the Turks surround us, there is no time for such trifles as a different ethnic group. I am surprised that there are no Balts on the list. winked

    If Erdogan seriously tramples on Russia, his own business groups will overthrow him.
    And the Central Asian "countries" are too unstable to be a serious force.
    Well, geography ... Far from Turkey to Central Asia.
    Central Asia is a very likely source of chaos, but as a serious military force against Russia it is not.
