Turkestan Military District

Turkmen and Uzbek

Soviet Socialist Republic

By the end of the sixties the Chinese-Soviet relations hit the bottom. In 1969 the Turkestan Military District was divided into two parts. The Central Asian Military District was formed on the territory of Kazakhstan. Its mission was to protect the Soviet-Chinese border. The Turkestan Military District was formed on the territory of Uzbeg and Turkmen Soviet Socialist Republic. The Imperial Iran was kept at bay by them.

Mostly the Turkestan Military District's units fought in Afghanistan between 1979 and 1989.

In 1984 the Turkestan Military District became the subordinate of the General Command - Southern Theatre. In 1989, after the war in Afghanistan, the Soviet Turkestan Military District and the Central Asian Military District has been merged again.
