    War With Multiple Enemies in Afghanistan
    Petr Topychkanov February 21, 2014

    Today, many countries have to fight against terrorist organizations, which have roots in the Soviet war in Afghanistan. However, this lesson is still unlearned: in Syria, fighters under Islamic flags have gained support of several countries, but this support will recoil upon the supporters’ own heads.

    Slump in South Asia?
    Petr Topychkanov January 31, 2014

    The slump of interest in South Asia in the West is a positive development, because it makes clearer which countries are the real partners of Afghanistan, India, and Pakistan.

    TTP Talks
    Petr Topychkanov November 15, 2013

    The nomination of Mullah Fazlullah as the new head of the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) does not seem to dramatically change prospects for an agreement between the TTP and Islamabad. Yet if signed, this agreement will not be able to stop violence in the tribal area of Pakistan and neighbor regions.

    Don’t Overestimate the Role of Pakistan

    The Losers and Winners in Afghanistan

    The U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2014 equates with an unquestionable strengthening of the Taliban movement or even with its actual coming to power.
