    Unified Air Defense Systems Priority for CIS Collective Security

    Deputy director of the CIS coordinating committee said that tight integration of the Commonwealth of Independent States’ anti-aircraft defense forces in the region is an important direction in uniting the CIS’s air defense systems.

    DUSHANBE (Sputnik) – The tight integration of the Commonwealth of Independent States’ anti-aircraft defense forces in the region is an important direction in uniting the CIS’s missile defense systems, a deputy director of the CIS coordinating committee said Tuesday.

    “The priority in the development [of the unified air defense systems] is a further integration in the region, that is the creation of unified or united regional air defense systems in the eastern European, Central Asian, and Caucasus regions for collective security,” Gen.Lt. Pavel Kurachenko said during a CIS defense ministers’ meeting in Tajikistan’s capital of Dushanbe.

    Russia has long been leading efforts to build a joint air defense shield for the CIS, a loose organization of former Soviet republics.

    An integrated air defense network was set up by 10 CIS-member countries in 1995 and currently comprises air defense units and elements from Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Tajikistan.

    The main purpose of the network is to ensure the protection of member country airspace, as well as early warning of missile attacks and coordination of joint efforts to neutralize potential air threats.

    Uzbekistan has a long-standing habit of meandering back and forth between the US and Russia every few years for no real reason, but never getting close enough to either to sign up for anything permenant. On the plus side, at least Karimov in contrast to the Ukrainians, has enough of a grip on his own country to be able to do so without problems; even if he doesn't really win anything in the process.

    Turkmenistan is pretty firm on its neutrality; good luck on getting that country to sign up to anything.

    Azerbaijan as you mentioned has the Nagorno Karabakh conflict. Were it to be solved it would be quite conceivable that it would join the CSTO. Azerbaijan, like the Turkmens and Uzbeks, has tended towards neutrality vis-a-vis Russia and America; banking on its seperate alliance with Turkey; however under Aliev Jr. it has enjoyed good relations with Russia and in recent years has turned more towards Russia and away from America.

    ASTRAKHAN, September 8. /TASS/. The improvement and development of the united air defense system of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) countries will be discussed in Astrakhan (southern Russia) on Tuesday by members of the Coordinating Committee on Air Defense under the CIS Council of Defense Ministers, the Russian Defense Ministry press service told reporters.

    The Committee’s regular meeting will be attended by delegations from the Defense Ministries of the Russian Federation, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

    "The meeting participants will discuss the organization of joint operational and combat training activities of the CIS united air defense system in 2016, the focal areas of the study of problems of air defence and training of military personnel for the united air defence system," a Russian Defense Ministry official said.

    After the meeting, members of the Coordinating Committee will continue their work at the Ashuluk range in the Astrakhan region, where the active phase of the Combat Commonwealth-2015 joint exercise of the CIS united air defence system is underway from September 7 to 10.

    "The members of the delegations will get familiarised with the peculiarities of the joint tactical employment of the coalition aviation and air defence forces of the CIS member states in the regions of collective security during anti-terrorist actions and in armed conflicts," the Defence Ministry said.

    The united air defense system of CIS countries was created on the basis of an agreement between 10 Commonwealth countries, signed on February 10, 1995 in Alma-Ata, for an indefinite period.

    At present, the united air defense system of the CIS member countries brings together eight states: Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

    Russia Builds Unified Air Defense for CIS Collective Security

    Russia has long been leading efforts to build a joint air defense shield for the CIS, a loose organization of former Soviet republics.

    A pertinent agreement has already been drawn up with Armenia, similar accords are being worked on with Kirgizia and Tajikistan, and Russian and Belarusian air defense units will start joint combat duty late next year, the deputy head of the Russia’s Air Space Command said on Tuesday.

    “A draft agreement with Armenia on establishing a unified air defense system in the Caucasus collective security region and Russia has already been approved and is ready for signing,” Lt.-Gen. Pavel Kurachenko said.

    Russia signed a similar agreement with Kazakhstan in 2013.

    An integrated air defense network was set up by 10 CIS-member countries in 1995 and currently comprises air defense units and elements from Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Tajikistan.

    The main purpose of the network is to ensure the protection of member country airspace, as well as early warning of missile attacks and coordination of joint efforts to neutralize potential air threats.

    Prime ministers of former USSR states to discuss joint air defense development

    DUSHANBE, October 30. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev will meet the heads of the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) countries in the Tajikistani capital Dushanbe on Friday to discuss a number of issues, including the development of the CIS joint antiaircraft defense system.

    The Russian government’s staff told TASS that "the agenda includes 40 documents." Several of them are devoted to "the financial aspects of the creation and development of the CIS joint air defense system and ensuring the activity of the Coordination Committee on air defense under the Council of the Defense Ministers."

    Documents relating to cooperation between the states’ law enforcement agencies are to be discussed. They include a "protocol to the Agreement on cooperation in the return of minors to their countries of residence and regulations of the competent authorities on the search for internationally wanted persons."

    However, the Russian Cabinet staff said, "the development of trade and economic cooperation and cultural ties will be given the priority." For example, "it is planned to adopt an action plan for the implementation of the third stage (2016-2020) of the CIS Economic Development Strategy." It is aimed at "the development of innovative socially-oriented economy, nuclear energy, alternative fuels, high-technology transport systems, as well as new infrastructure projects."

    It is planned to sign a draft agreement on the conditions of the inter-carrier settlements in international telecommunication services in CIS countries.

    It is planned to consider a report "on the competitive situation on the markets of pharmaceuticals, devoted to the problems of competition development at all stages of the circulation of pharmaceuticals, the formation of coordinated approaches to their settlement." The CIS government heads will also hear a report on improving the financial literacy level and the development of financial education, which, according to the authors, is "to promote financial education and the formation of an effective system for assurance of consumer rights."

    "A draft package of measures until 2020 is aimed at the development and promotion of the use of natural gas as motor vehicle fuel," the government said. An international training centre will be created to this end for specialists in this sphere at the Russian Gubkin State University of Oil and Gas.

    Several mores documents which are to be approved by the CIS heads of government are devoted to the young citizens. For example, the plans of activities for 2016-2017 to implement the Strategy of international youth cooperation are aimed at "ensuring the youth’s equal access to education and work, promoting a healthy way of living."

    The CIS government heads will also focus on the older generation of their countries. In particular, they have worked out the guidelines for the further development of the health and social care and improving living standards of war veterans - participants in local conflicts and their families until 2020.

    The prime ministers also plan to start preparations for the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the CIS in 2016. They will consider a plan of action, which includes analytical conferences, a series of exhibitions, fairs and business forums, sports tournaments. The Commonwealth member countries also plan to hold "CIS Weeks."

    Putin submits agreement on Unified Air Defense System with Armenia to State Duma

    The document stipulates "the establishment of a regional Unified Air Defense System as part of the of CIS Unified Air Defense System"

    MOSCOW, October 7. /TASS/. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin on Friday has submitted a Russian-Armenian agreement on creating the Caucasus Unified Air Defense System to the State Duma. This information is available from the State Duma electronic database.

    Russia and Armenia signed the agreement in Moscow on December 23, 2015. The document stipulates "the establishment of a regional Unified Air Defense System as part of the of CIS Unified Air Defense System." The main task of the system is to "set up and maintain air defense combat duty in the Caucasus region, keep the battle management system, the weaponry and the military hardware of the Unified Air Defense System on alert, cooperate with the forces of other regional air defense systems," an explanatory note says.

    The Russian Aerospace Force Commander-in-Chief will coordinate the joint activities of the Unified Air Defense System and other regional air defense systems. Russia’s Southern Military Region Commander will conduct the overall leadership. The air defense system will be used in accordance with the legislation of the country in whose air space a target is detected.

    In peacetime, the member states’ defense ministries are supposed to draw up plans for the combined use of the troops, their joint air defense combat duties, as well as operational and combat training.

    Armenia’s parliament ratified this agreement at the end of June. According to Parliament Deputy Speaker Eduard Sharmazanov, "this agreement derives from the national interests" of the country.
