Kazakhstan residents gaining fighting experience in Taliban movement in Afghanistan may come back to their homeland and attempt to create terrorist groups under certain circumstances, Tengrinews.kz reports. This, of course, poses a threat for the country and Central Asia in general, political expert Dossym Satpayev thinks. On April 15 the Talibs started their traditional ‘spring attack’ in Afghanistan: 17 terrorists were killed and 17 officers of law-enforcement authorities were wounded. Civilians were injured as well.

“Military experts are saying that withdrawal of the military forces from Afghanistan by 2014 poses a serious threat because it creates conditions for Taliban to try and restore its status quo and regain control over Afghanistan,” the expert said. “The biggest threat for us is that the citizens of Central Asian countries, including Kazakhstan, trained in Afghanistan, may come back to their home regions. If that happens, they will try to create terrorist groups. These people are not dilettantes who make bombs following instructions from the Internet. They know what military actions are,” Satpayev adds.

The expert notes that young people of Kazakhstan are participating in organization of terrorist attacks abroad more frequently these days. This March Kazakhstan-born Ilya Pyanzin was arrested for a plot to assassinate Russian Prime-Minister Vladimir Putin. Besides, members of the extremist Islamic group were apprehended in Uralsk. According to law-enforcement authorities, they were interacting with international terrorism leaders. Satpayev stresses that the recent series of terrorist attacks in Kazakhstan testifies that the “social environment in Kazakhstan is favorable for recruiting of our citizens and exporting them abroad for military operations”.

“In the past 20 year, as some of my colleagues say, there has been several waves of participation in terrorist groups: the first one was triggered by activities of foreign organizations in the beginning of the 1990s - those organizations were active in preparing and recruiting Kazakhstan citizens. We should not forget that our young people often were to study in the countries with strong radical positions, like Egypt, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. Some of them came back after certain training,” Satpayev says. “And we are currently seeing another wave, when Kazakhstan citizens are displaying the activity. These are dangerous trends.”
