Russia beefs up it's military base in Tajikistan.

Tajikistan has had quite a bit of unrest over the past few months, but any military buildup, most likely is in case Russia will have to deal with terrorist threats coming from Afghanistan.

Prolly going to be a fair bit of reinforcing of the states bordering Russia - the 'stans.

I'd expect that U.S to be redoubling there efforts there. We had Electric Yeravan a few months ago - failed because the template for colour revolutions is now instantly recognisable - but there will be more attempts 'Water Astana' anyone?

I'd bet that intelligence services are on the lookout for large print jobs that are using artwork recycled from other 'sponsored revolutions'. For some reason they seem to reuse artwork and symbology.

Andrewfi - if you ask most Armenians - they will tell you all is not ideal with their govt. and they need Russia as a 'friend' re Nagorno-Karabakh v Azerbaijan.. but your version of 'history' is always colourful.

I think you meant to say ..'''the Kremlin will not tolerate any change in 'friendly' regimes  - even if that's what the majority of citizens want  ..

Russia has revised plans in Tajikistan.
Doesn't mention in this article, but China seems to be on very good terms with Tajikistan.
Maybe China will be militarily active as well un the region.
