    Russia, Kazakhstan to set up joint air defense network
    RIA Novosti

    15:58 08/12/2010

    MOSCOW, December 8 (RIA Novosti) - Russia and Kazakhstan have agreed to create a joint regional air defense network, chief of Kazakh air defenses Lt. Gen. Alexander Sorokin said on Wednesday.

    "We have agreed to create a joint regional air defense network, which is similar to that of Russia and Belarus," Sorokin said, adding that the Kazakh Air Force would be responsible for defending Russian airspace along the border with Kazakhstan.

    "The creation of this network envisions free-of-charge deliveries of Russian S-300 air defense systems to Kazakhstan," the general said.

    Kazakhstan currently has an undisclosed number of an earlier version of S-300 inherited from the Soviet Union.

    "Kazakhstan is also interested in buying Russia's advanced S-400 Triumf air defense systems, but we understand that the Russian Army should get these systems on a priority basis," Sorokin said.

    The Russian Defense Ministry confirmed on Wednesday that S-300 systems would be delivered to Kazakhstan in line with a previous agreement, but said a delivery contract was still in the works.

    Russia also offered Kazakhstan to join its missile early warning and space monitoring network, and use Russia's Glonass satellite global positioning network for military purposes.

    Russia - Kazakhstan military cooperation

    Post  Sujoy on Thu Jan 31, 2013 6:06 pm

    Russia and Kazakhstan signed a deal on Wednesday to create a joint regional air defense system, Kazakhstan's Defense Ministry said on Wednesday.

    “This document will create a platform to secure the defense of Kazakhstan’s airspace and Russia’s adjacent territory,” the Defense Ministry said in a statement.

    Russia’s Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, who is in Kazakhstan on an official visit, and his Kazakhstan counterpart Defense Minister Adilbek Dzhaksybekov signed the agreement in the capital Astana.

    Russia has previously had such an air defense agreement only with Belarus, but has planned to sign a similar one with Armenia, although the two countries do not share a border.

    The two defense ministers also discussed bilateral military issues including Russia’s proving grounds in Kazakhstan and military education. Some 600 Kazakhstan military personnel are currently studying in Russian military academies.

    Well well, interesting. This surely means Russian air-force will go for MIG-35 also.

    Kazakhstan's military said the T-72 one of the best in the world, appreciate BMPT, and plans to purchase MiG-35.

    Speaking about the prospects of the Kazakhstan Air Force and Deputy Minister of Defense said that the most promising now is to purchase a fleet of the Air Forces of Kazakhstan multipurpose fighters Mig-35 .

    Rumors of this appeared when the MiG-29M2 visited Kazakhstan last year.

    Hopefully goes through.

    It is strange that everyone knows well in advance what Sukhois the Russian AF is buying but only a snippet here and there about Mig purchases...

    Hope both Kazakhstan and Russia get Mig-35s as it is the plane the Mig-29 always should have been.

    It seems that RSK MiG efforts to improve the model are paying off. No more criticism of short range, and Kazakhstan is not a small country...

    Russia and Kazakhstan now share Kazakhstani Strategic Sites

    Kazakhstan decided to significantly increase its control over the Baikonur Cosmodrome, situated in the desert steppes and leased by Russia until 2050, despite Russia’s objections. Finally Russia yielded and the two countries signed as agreement on joint operation of this facility in late 2013.

    Russia plans to commission its own new cosmodrome (Vostochniy) in Siberia in 2018 but currently has no alternatives to Baikonur. Understandably, that is why Russia has a dire need for Baikonur to remain a space center. Moscow sees any restrictions posed by Kazakhstan on this facility as an infringement of its economical and geopolitical interests.

    Last week the parties agreed on joint operation of Sary-Shagan anti-ballistic missile testing range located near Balkhash Lake in Kazakhstan which was used by Russia alone earlier.

    While Moscow may have reason to see red, experts from both countries do not think that these changes in the operation of the complexes — which are of strategic importance for Russia — is likely to hamper relations between two countries.

    The period when Kazakhstan took no part in the management of important facilities on its territory was transitional, believes Russian policy analyst on Central Asia Alexander Knyazev.

    “It is a normal integration process in the military-political sphere. There is nothing special about it. This is a common international practice,” the regional program coordinator of the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences Alexander Knyazev told Trend on Feb. 4.

    On the contrary, he believes, that joint operation of strategic objects is evidence of bilateral confidence.

    The Russian expert says that Kazakhstan remains Russia’s most reliable partner in the Central Asia region.

    “There are some countries in Central Asia which are formally Russian allies within the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) – Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. But these two countries are very inconsistent in their foreign policy. They are allies on paper, but I would consider them as very unreliable allies. They are constantly trying to change the conditions of Russian military objects presence on their territory to get some economic preferences,” Knyazev said.

    Meanwhile, the foreign policy of other countries – Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan – does not envisage the presence of Russian military forces on their territories, the expert noted.

    Kazakh political analyst Eduard Poletayev shares the opinion of his Russian colleague that changes in conditions of leasing agreements do not mean that there are any problems in the bilateral relations between Russia and Kazakhstan.

    “It is normal practice when agreements which envisage monetary compensation are revised from time to time. It is resulted from inflation, rising prices, etc. But nobody is going to change the leasing agreements fundamentally,” the head of World of Eurasia Public Foundation Poletayev told Trend on Feb. 5.

    He noted that it is not the first time Kazakh-Russian leasing agreements are under revision and that the sum of Russia’s payment to Kazakhstan for Baikonur was once increased some years ago.

    Poletayev admitted that some bodies and officials of both countries were unhappy with the relations between Russia and Kazakhstan in the military and space spheres and made negative statements.

    “However these problems do not threaten bilateral relations. All of them were resolved along the way. The situation just had a working character,” Poletayev said.

    In general, the ecology protests which took place across Kazakhstan following the explosion of the Russian carrier rocket Proton in Kazakhstan were not against cooperation with Russia but urged to use ecological fuel at Baikonur, the Kazakh political analyst said.

    The Proton-M carrier rocket with three Glonass-M Russian navigation satellites crashed on July 2 at the Baikonur Cosmodrome one minute after take-off and spilled its toxic fuel on Kazakhstan’s territory.

    So the bilateral relations between Kazakhstan and Russia remain positive the experts believe. However it is difficult to make long-term forecasts in such issues they warned.

    Meanwhile Russia is going to strengthen and develop its military base in another Central Asia republic — Kant air base in Kyrgyzstan.

    Russia ratifies deal on aerospace cooperation with Kazakhstan

    Upper house parliamentary lawmakers have ratified a Russia-Kazakhstan agreement on cooperation in the peaceful exploration and use of outer space.

    The accord was signed in Kazakhstan’s capital, Astana, in May 2008, aiming to establish organizational and legal procedures for working together. Russia’s lower house ratified the agreement on May 23.

    Leonid Slutsky, chairing the Committee on Commonwealth of Independent States Affairs, Eurasian Integration and Ties with Compatriots, said the document stipulated principles, norms and conditions covering distribution and protection of intellectual property rights, export control, defense of property and technology, and customs clearance procedures.

    "This is an important innovation," Slutsky said.

    Moscow and Astana also will sign a memorandum on the construction of a nuclear power plant in Kazakhstan, Russia’s presidential aide Yuri Ushakov has said.

    "After the Russia-Kazakhstan talks, due to be held on May 29, Russia and Kazakhstan are expected to sign a package of documents for further expansion of nuclear cooperation," Ushakov said on Wednesday.

    The nuclear power plant will be built in Kazakhstan with the use of Russia’s technology, he said, TASS reports.

    Kazakhstan interested in Russia's Iskander-M missile system deliveries

    ZHUKOVSKY, August 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Kazakhstan has filed a request concerning deliveries of Russian Iskander-M missile systems, Konstantin Biryulin, director of the Federal Service for Military Technological Cooperation, told journalists on Monday.

    "There has been a request from Kazakhstan but no decisions have been made as of yet,” Biryulin told Itar-Tass, adding both sides are involved in a discussion.

    Iskander-M (NATO reporting name SS-26 Stone) is a version of the Iskander tactical missile system supplied to the Russian Armed Forces. It is capable of hitting targets deep inside the enemy lines. The system’s firing range is up to 500 km. The complex comprises a launcher with two missiles, a missile-transporter loader, a command post vehicle, a technical maintenance vehicle, a set of arsenal equipment, a data processing unit, as well as training facilities.

    Russia’s Caspian flotilla holds joint war games with Kazakhstan

    MOSCOW, October 7. /TASS/. Russia’s Caspian flotilla grouping held joint military exercises with Kazakhstan’s naval force during their visit to the Kazakh port of Aktau, the press service of the Southern Military District said.

    “A tactical grouping of warships made of the Dagestan missile-carrying guard ship, the Grad Sviyazhsk small missile-carrying ship from the Caspian flotilla and the Kazakhstan and Oral artillery gunships of Kazakhstan’s Navy held joint war games protecting maritime economic facilities,” the military district’s press service said.

    Warships drilled joint sea maneuvers, their crews had separate and joint fire drills on sea and air targets. A buoyant mine was destroyed amid resistance of an imaginary enemy’s aviation steered by Kazakh military pilots.

    On Tuesday, Russian warships will set out in the high seas again to visit the Iranian port of Bender Enzeli and Azerbaijan’s capital Baku, the Southern Military District reported.

    Russian Helicopters delivers Mi-8AMT to Kazakhstan
    Russian Aviaton » Thursday October 9, 2014 15:31 MSK

    Russian Helicopters (a subsidiary of Oboronprom, part of State Corporation Rostec) has delivered a multirole Mi-8AMT helicopter to the Almaty City Rescue Service, Akimat Almaty, Kazakhstan.

    “The delivery of the Mi-8AMT to the Almaty City Rescue Service represents another important step in the continued development of Russia-Kazakhstan cooperation in the operation of Russian helicopter technology,” Russian Helicopters’ Deputy CEO for Sales and Marketing Grigory Kozlov said. “Today about 200 helicopters built at our facilities are operated by private companies and state agencies in Kazakhstan. The civilian helicopter fleet here is growing rapidly, and we are committed to meeting in full our Kazakh partners’ requirements for the latest helicopters.”

    “The city of Almaty boasts a population of 1.5 million, and is the rapidly growing southern capital of the Republic of Kazakhstan. We pay significant attention to issues related to equipping the Rescue Service with the latest technology, specialist technology and equipment,” said Almaty’s Akim (head of a local government) Akhmetzhan Esimov. “We hope that the Mi-8AMT will successfully carry out operations to prevent emergencies, emergency response operations, and to offer first aid to residents of and visitors to the capital. There are plans to further expand the Rescue Service’s helicopter fleet which will be used during events such as the Worldwide Youth Universiade in 2017, and in construction work on the Kok Zhaylau world-class ski resort.”

    Almaty City Rescue Service's Mi-8AMT helicopter was built at Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant (a Russian Helicopters company), under a contract concluded in 2013. The customer's specific requirements were taken into account in producing it. It was fitted with additional equipment enabling it to carry out search and rescue operations and transport cargo and passengers. Its search and rescue function is supported by the LPG-150M winch and external sling, which has a hydraulic weighing system. Additional external fuel tanks can be fitted, increasing the helicopter's range to 1,065 km. The improved cabin can comfortably seat up to 12 people. The helicopter is distinguished by its low vibration and noise. It is fitted with the latest navigation and radio communications equipment, ensuring it can operate safely in a wide range of different conditions. This model of helicopter may also prove to be in demand in other states and by commercial helicopter operators in Kazakhstan and Russia.

    All the main models of helicopter produced by Russian Helicopters are operated in Kazakhstan:Mi-8/17 series military-transport and search and rescue helicopters, Ka-32A11BC multirole helicopters with a coaxial main rotor system, Mi-24V attack helicopter and the super-heavy Mi-26(T) transport helicopter. Kazakhstan’s helicopter operators have expressed significant interest in Russian Helicopters’ up and coming developments: the medium multirole Mi-171A2 and the Mi-38 passenger transport helicopter.

    Aftersale maintenance support for Russian helicopters in Kazakhstan is carried out by Aircraft Repair Plant No. 405 in Almaty. Certified for the whole Central Asian region, the plant offers a range of technical service, repair and modernisation services to Mi- and Ka- helicopters operated by the Kazakhstan’s Defence Ministry, the Kazakhstan National Security Committee’s (KNB) Border Service, the Kazakhstan’s Interior Ministry, as well as other states and commercial aviation firms. A technical service and repair centre has been opened in Kazakhstan’s Aktobe to handle a variety of issues. There are plans to open maintenance and service support centres in Kazakhstan’s capital Astana, and in the cities of Aktau, Atyrau, Shymkent, and Oskemen.

    In recent years, Russia-Kazakhstan partnership on helicopter projects has been developing dynamically. In May 2012, Russian Helicopters delivered two new multirole Ka-32A11BC helicopters to the Republic of Kazakhstan's Emergency Situations Ministry. In February 2013, Rosoboronexport handled the delivery of 4 Mi-171Sh helicopters to the Kazakhstan National Security Committee’s border guard service. In August, the holding delivered a Mi-171E helicopter to the Interior Ministry. Novosibirsk Aircraft Repair Plant, a Russian Helicopters company, carried out the comprehensive repair and modernisation of two Mi-26T helicopters for Kazaviazapas. This year, the Kazakhstan National Security Committee’s border guard service took delivery of two Mi-171Sh helicopters under a contract with Rosoboronexport. In 2015, Mi-171E helicopters are scheduled to be delivered to Kazakhstan's Emergency Situations Ministry and to the National Guard.

    Russia signs deal on military and technical cooperation with Kazakhstan

    MOSCOW, December 2. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has approved a law ratifying an agreement with Kazakhstan on military and technical cooperation. The document was published on the official web portal for legal information on Tuesday.

    The move follows lower house ratification on November 21 and upper house ratification on November 26.

    The accord regulates mutual military supplies for the two countries’ armed forces, law enforcement agencies and security services.

    It envisages a more favourable regime for interaction of the sides in development, production, operation, repair, modernization, prolongation of the service life, and utilization of armaments and military equipment.

    The term of this agreement is for five years and is automatically renewed for successive five year periods.

    Russia has already signed similar deals with Belarus and Armenia.

    Su-30SMs are fine for Kazakhstan's requirements. They have no conceivable threats to their borders or interests. Of course they should be prepared anyway though, and for that the Su-30SM is a good compromise between capability and price. Can easily fulfill air superiority and fighter-bomber roles for them, as well as air-cover and anti-ship support for their naval contingent in the Caspian.
    Together with modernized MiG-31s for interceptor duties over their large airspace; their air-force is pretty much complete.

    So apparently they should get 4 Su-30SM starting May (for just 75 million), and they plan to get 32 by 2020 (worth 2 billion). Also will get 4 Mi-171 this year. I hope other CIS countries will start renewing their fighter and training fleets.
