Day of the border guards of Turkmenistan (11/08)

On August 11, the border guards of Turkmenistan, who are responsible for the security of the borders of their state, celebrate their professional holiday.

About five thousand kilometers is the length of the state border of Turkmenistan. It runs on land, running through the plains and mountains, and along the waters of the Caspian Sea.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, each republic that was part of it and received the status of an independent state had to solve the issue of state border security in the first days of its existence, including issues of personnel and logistics, training of command personnel, interaction with the border services of neighboring states etc.
