    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.
