Russia "Ready" To Ship Weapons To Central Asian Allies To Prevent Terrorists From Flooding Region

update (10:03ET): Days ago one particularly apt NY Times headline captured the growing concern and view from Washington: "With Afghan Collapse, Moscow Takes Charge in Central Asia."

Over the weekend Putin announced Russia has shut its borders to Afghans now pouring out of the country amid the US exit and ongoing evacuation debacle, further castigating US and European leaders for placing refugees in neighboring central Asian countries - but which according to Putin is a potential threat to Russia as "We don't want militants showing up here under cover of refugees."

It now appears Russia will take its security concerns a big step further, in what will be seen as a defiant thumb in the eye to Washington. Russia's RIA news agency is reporting that the Kremlin stands "ready to deliver weapons and equipment to central Asian allies that border Afghanistan." Further RIA cited top officials who said these large deliveries would be done "at special low prices".
