Abstract. Escalation of a terrorist threat in Central Asia is linked above all with the growing activities in the region of the ISIL, a terrorist organization prohibited in Russia. Escalation of underground terrorist activities in Central Asian countries as well as deterioration of the situation in Afghanistan force the governments of these countries to undertake additional steps aimed at ensuring national security. They include a number of domestic measures as well as strengthening security cooperation with the leading foreign actors – Russia, USA and China.
Keywords: Central Asia, radical Islamism, terrorism, ISIL, CIS summit in Kazakhstan, Russia’s military aid to Kyrgyzstan, USA and Uzbekistan, USA and Turkmenistan
