    Post-Soviet security bloc miltiary drills kick off in Armenia

    The drills are codenamed Enduring Brotherhood and are aimed at preparation and conduct of peacekeeping operations by the CSTO Collective Peacekeeping Forces in the Caucasus

    YEREVAN, September 30. /TASS/. The Joint exercise of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) peacekeeping forces codenamed Nerushimoe Bratstvo (Enduring Brotherhood) is beginning in Armenia on Wednesday.

    The drills are held in accordance with the decision of the CSTO Council of Defense Ministers and the Committee of CSTO Security Council Secretaries, adopted in December 2014. The maneuvers are aimed at "preparation and conduct of peacekeeping operations by the CSTO Collective Peacekeeping Forces in the Caucasus region of collective security."

    The exercise will involve representatives and units of the Armed Forces and law enforcement agencies of Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Tajikistan, which are members of the CSTO Collective Peacekeeping Forces. In addition, representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), as well as the Joint Staff and the Secretariat of the Collective Security Treaty Organisation will attend the drills.

    The Armenian Defense Ministry reported previously that "the commanders and staffs during the exercise will drill preparation of a peacekeeping operation and command and control of units of the CSTO Collective Peacekeeping Forces."

    The Russian army is represented at the drills by 100 troops of the peacekeeping brigade of the Central Military District and 10 military hardware units, a Defense Ministry official told TASS.

    The total number of troops contributed to the CSTO Collective Peacekeeping Forces is about 4,000, including about 500 officers of law enforcement bodies and the emergencies ministries. The Nerushimoe Bratstvo peacekeeping exercise is held annually since 2012.

    The Collective Security Treaty was signed on May 15, 1992 in Tashkent, by the heads of six countries: Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Subsequently, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Belarus joined it. The treaty came into force on April 20, 1994. In April 1999, the Protocol on prolongation of the Collective Security Treaty was signed by six of them (except for Azerbaijan, Georgia and Uzbekistan).

    The key objectives of the CSTO are ensuring national and collective security, intensive military-political cooperation and integration, foreign policy coordination on international and regional security issues, the establishment of multilateral cooperation mechanisms, including a military component, the development of cooperation in the counteraction to modern challenges and security threats, such as international terrorism, drug trafficking, illegal migration, transnational organised crime, information and cyber security, military-technical cooperation.

    Post-Soviet military bloc to get integral information space — official



    The Collective Security Treaty Organization incorporates six countries - Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan

    MOSCOW, November 19. /TASS/. A common information space will be created for the countries affiliated with the Collective Security Treaty Organization (post-Soviet military bloc), the chief of the National Defense Control Centre, Mikhail Mizintsev, said on Thursday.

    "Alongside the creation of the CSTO crisis response centre efforts are underway to form an integral information space in the interests of the CSTO member-states," he said.

    Certain positive experience was accumulated in the course of last August’s military exercise codenamed Cooperation-2015.

    At the CSTO summit in December 2014 Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the National Defense Control Centre would work for all CSTO member-states and enhance the controllability of national defense systems. Russia’s Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said that Russia would provide assistance to the CSTO allies in creating equivalents of Russia’s defense control centre.

    The National Defense Control Centre officially went operational on December 1, 2014. It allows for receiving on-line information about the current situation at every single military unit or facility across the nation. The centre’s data processing complex is capable of modelling situations along Russia’s perimeter borders and at any point around the globe. The overall capacity of the centre’s data processing system is thrice that of the US counterpart and exceeds the capacity of the Pentagon’s data base 20 times.

    The Collective Security Treaty Organization incorporates six countries - Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. The Collective security Treaty Organization was concluded in 2002.

    Kyrgyzstan to brief CSTO on situation on border with Uzbekistan

    Uzbekistan has unilaterally closed the Madaniyat highway checkpoint on the border with Kyrgyzstan

    BISHKEK, March 22. /TASS/. Kyrgyzstan will submit the issue of the situation on a section of its border with Uzbekistan for consideration by the Permanent Council of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), a source in the Kyrgyz Foreign Ministry told TASS on Tuesday.

    "The organization’s member-countries will be informed about the situation on the border during an extraordinary meeting of the OSCE Permanent Council," the ministry said, adding that the meeting would be held in the Russian capital on Tuesday.

    Uzbekistan deployed two armored personnel carriers and 40 troops to the disputed border section in the Chalasart area on Friday and unilaterally closed the Madaniyat highway checkpoint on the border with Kyrgyzstan and imposed restrictions on Kyrgyz citizens’ entry at the Dostuk highway checkpoint. In response to this, the Kyrgyz side sent two armored personnel carriers and special force troops to this area and stopped the passage of Uzbek citizens and their vehicles at the Baimak, Ken-Sai and Kadamjai highway checkpoints. After that, only one checkpoint — Kyzyl-Kiya used for the passage of the residents of the Sokh and Shakhimardan enclaves — remained open on the border between the two countries. The Kyrgyz Foreign Ministry fiiled a note of protest to Tashkent on March 18, demanding to remove the roadblocks in the disputed area.

    On Sunday, the parties agreed to reduce the number of troops on this border section to eight people.

    The CSTO comprises Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Tajikistan.

    Expect LukaPuka to make a claim that they will only go on foreign soil if the nation is attacked, and it will be the nations soil that is being attacked. Or something similar. I assume he means that he wont send his troops to another country to invade.

    Post-Soviet security bloc to hold drills in three member states in 2017

    The Collective Security Treaty Organization plans to hold large-scale collective forces’ drills 'Combat Brotherhood' on the territory of Armenia, Kazakhstan and Russia in October 2017

    EDELVEIS PRACTICE RANGE (Kyrgyzstan), October 7. /TASS/. The Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) plans to hold large-scale collective forces’ drills dubbed Combat Brotherhood on the territory of Armenia, Kazakhstan and Russia in October 2017, Chief of the CSTO Joint Staff Colonel-General Anatoly Sidorov said on Friday.


    "This year, four CSTO exercises have been held on the territory of various states and at different time. Next year, we’re planning to unite the maneuvers and hold them under a single scenario simultaneously with all the components of the CSTO collective forces. So far, the name Combat Brotherhood has been proposed for the drills," Sidorov said.

    The CSTO’s unified drills will be held in October 2017. "That is, we won’t hold drills separately in April, August, September and October as was the case this year and in October 2017 we’ll practice joint measures within a short period of time on the territory of three states: Russia, Armenia and Kazakhstan. This will be more efficient to optimize the joint system of the CSTO collective forces’ control," he said.

    "The drills will approximately last three weeks and a counter-terror operation will be devised under a single scenario: first reconnaissance, then the use of the rapid response collective forces with the support of aviation and then the post-conflict settlement with the employment of peace-keeping forces. This will be an experiment," the colonel-general said.

    The CSTO rapid response collective forces comprise over 17,000 servicemen from Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Tajikistan. These troops allow adequately responding to all existing challenges and threats - to counter terrorism, extremism and drug trafficking. The CSTO peacekeeping forces comprise about 3,600 servicemen.

    The CSTO’s joint tactical maneuvers Rubezh-2016 have ended on the territory of Kyrgyzstan on Friday. The drills involved over 1,000 troops from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia. No more exercises of the CSTO collective forces are planned this year.

    CSTO Police Special Forces Drills Kick Off in Armenia

    The CSTO member states' special forces have launched three-day military drills in Armenia, the CSTO press service said in a statement on Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) member states' special forces assigned to the organization's joint Collective Rapid Reaction Force (KSOR) have launched three-day drills in Armenia, the CSTO press service said in a statement on Tuesday.

    “Training with the heads of CSTO member states’ interior ministries (police) special units, allocated to the organization’s Collective Rapid Reaction Force, was launched on July 11 under the supervision of CSTO Deputy Secretary General Valery Semerikov,” the statement said.

    According to the statement, police officers from Russia, Armenia, Belarus and Kyrgyzstan, as well as national guard officers from Russia and Kazakhstan, are taking part.

    The drills, providing the participants with the opportunity to work on special operations scenarios and exchange experience in training methods, are set to last for three days on the base of the Police Educational Complex of the Republic of Armenia.

    The CSTO added that the training session is aimed at enhancing professionalism of police chiefs, as well as at boosting the potential of KSOR special forces units.

    The CSTO was established on the basis of the Collective Security Treaty, signed by the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) member states on May 15, 1992. Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Tajikistan are the current CSTO members. Former member state Uzbekistan announced the suspension of its CSTO membership in 2012.

    KRASNOARMEISK /Moscow region/, September 14. /TASS/. The Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) is beginning its Grom military exercises on Thursday to be followed by the Poisk and Vzaimodeistviye drills, CSTO Deputy Secretary General Valery Semerikov told reporters.

    Joint Staff of Collective Security Treaty Organisation is 15 years of age

    The 15th anniversary of foundation of the Joint Staff of the Collective Security Treaty Organisation is celebrated on 28 April 2018.

    The CSTO Joint Staff, being a permanent working body of the Organisation, is responsible for drafting proposals relating to the military component of the CSTO.

    The CSTO Joint Staff is tasked with the formation, operation and employment of the CSTO Collective Forces (Troops), the preparation and holding jointly with the defence departments of the Organization member states of joint operational and combat training events, military technical cooperation, coordination of joint training of personnel and specialists for the Armed Forces of the CSTO member states.

    The CSTO Joint Staff made a great contribution to the development of normative legal documents aimed at creating and developing all components of the collective security system.

    For 15 years, the CSTO Joint Staff has played an organizational and coordinating role in forming the Collective Rapid Reaction Force (CRRF), Collective Rapid Deployment Force (CRDF), Peacekeeping Force (PKF) and Collective Aviation Force (CAF). The total strength of the multilateral CSTO Collective forces is over 26,000 servicemen.

    Since 1 January 2018, the CSTO Joint Staff has been operating with the new staff list. The principle of coalition guidance has been implemented. The Chief of the Joint Staff is appointed from the Russian Federation. Three Deputy Chiefs of the Joint Staff and two Chiefs of its Directorates are appointed from the Republic of Armenia, Republic of Belarus, Republic of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic and Republic of Tajikistan. The new staff list includes specialists of the Arms and Special Troops, including the Aviation, Air Defence, Reconnaissance, Signal Communications, RChBD, Engineer Troops, EW and Topographic Services.

    The CSTO Crisis Response Centre has become a new structural unit of the Joint Staff and an important element of the Organization’s collective security system. It is intended for organisational, information-analytical and information-technologial support of the CSTO statutory and working bodies in the interests of timely decision-making aimed at ensuring security, stability, territorial integrity and sovereignty of the CSTO member states within the framework of the crisis response.

    The main annual event of operational and combat training of the CSTO Collective Forces is the joint operational-strategic exercise ‘Combat Brotherhood’. In the framework of this large-scale exercise, the territory of the Central Asian collective security area covering the territories of four states is planned to be used for conducting from September to November this year: the strategic command post training for the operational groups of ministries and departments of the CSTO member states, the tactical special exercise ‘Search- 2018’ with the forces and means of reconnaissance services and units of the CSTO member states, the command post exercise with the CSTO CAF ‘Air Bridge-2018’, the command post exercise ‘Cooperation 2018’ with the Command of the CSTO CRRF military contingents, the joint tactical exercise "Line-2018" with the CSTO CRDF units and the joint exercise ‘Inviolable Brotherhood-2018’ with the CSTO Peacekeeping Force.

    In 2017, the joint operational-strategic exercise "Combat Brotherhood-2017’ involved about 12,000 troops, over 2,000 pieces of armaments, military and special equipment, and more than 140 aircraft.
