    Post-Soviet bloc to eliminate terror bases in Operation Mercenary


    Bloc's Acting Secretary General Valery Semerikov recalled that last year CSTO experts in cooperation with intelligence service and law enforcement authorities analyzed the activity of int'l terrorists


    MOSCOW, March 20. /TASS/. The member states of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) plan to carry out Operation Mercenary, a counter-terrorist operation aimed at neutralizing terrorist resource bases on the territory of the CSTO member states, CSTO Acting Secretary General Valery Semerikov told TASS in an interview on Wednesday.

    "The plan of comprehensive operational-preventive activities code-named Operation Mercenary to shut down channels for recruitment and entry/departure for citizens from CSTO countries for participation in the activity of international terrorist organizations was prepared and coordinated. The resource bases of terrorists in the CSTO’s responsibility zone will be also neutralized," he said.

    In 2018, CSTO experts in cooperation with intelligence service and law enforcement authorities analyzed the activity of international terrorists, Semerikov said. Operation Mercenary was prepared based on this analysis. "The plan for the operation was prepared already, and the corresponding coordinating centers were created in the states. Everything is ready for the operation that will involve all CSTO states," he noted, adding that the period and stages of the operation will not be disclosed so far.

    The CSTO forwarded the initiative to carry out Operation Mercenary in 2017. In 2018, the planning of this joint anti-terrorist operation was carried out. It will be aimed at fighting with members of Islamic State, a terrorist organization outlawed in Russia, who are trying to move from Syria to the territory of the states located in the CSTO’s zone of responsibility.

    Post-Soviet security bloc to train peacekeepers in Russia or Kazakhstan


    The CSTO secretary general noted that the organization would make a decision on choosing the basic center for training peacekeeping units under the UN standards until the end of the year

    MOSCOW, May 27. /TASS/. The Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) plans to train its peacekeeping forces in Russia or Kazakhstan, CSTO Secretary General Stanislav Zas told TASS on Wednesday.

    "We are setting the task to create a single base of training peacekeeping forces as a whole, and, in particular, training peacekeepers for the UN. Various options are being considered as to where this process will take place. We already have peacekeepers’ training centers in Russia and Kazakhstan. In this regard, military specialists must have their say," he said.

    The CSTO secretary general also noted that the organization would make a decision on choosing the basic center for training peacekeeping units under the UN standards until the end of the year.

    "We are setting ourselves the goal of completing all legal amendments in order to start practical steps [for peacekeeping activity] as soon as next year," he said.

    The CSTO is currently finalizing its basic documents so that the organization’s peacekeeping forces can implement their missions under the UN aegis, he said.

    I wouldn't be surprised if USA was fully backing an uprising in Kazakhstan. They have now lost their raping of uranium in Afghanistan, so where better to rape uranium than Kazakhstan. Also causing chaos in a country neighboring Russia and a strong Russian ally.

    The question is where will USA try next, Belarus and Kazakhstan were failures, and no doubt also done to cause distractions and pressure.

    Am hoping that Uzbekistan re-joins and Iran also joins CSTO. There was rumours years ago that Iran Could become a member. That would most likely piss of USA and Israel.

    Said the representative of the country with military units in 800 locations around the world. I can't think of anywhere, except perhaps Grenada and Vietnam that the US has pulled out of.

    The CSTO has certainly proved its worth.

    I doubt it was because of that. Most of that uranium is being enriched in Russia and imported into the US. Russia could just block sales of enriched uranium. And facilities to enrich uranium take many years to build. The US has closed down most of its enrichment capacity years ago and has been stalling building new capacity. Instead they outsource from Russia, which has plenty of capacity, and Europe, which has already allocated all of theirs.

    I think this was more to hit Chinese oil & gas transit and the BRI since the China-Europe railway passes through Kazakhstan. It would also have the other effect of putting another pressure point on Russia's border. But I think this was seriously misguided since Russia can easily cordon off Kazakhstan if they want to. The current government also has a large enough power base this coup won't work.

    It's no secret that USA was raping uranium in Afghanistan and they did so because it's lucrative and they were getting it free pretty much, and so after losing that source of revenue (uranium is expensive even before enrichment) and by removing uranium production in Kazakhstan so they can sell for themselves. Let's not forget Kazakhstan has the largest reserve's of uranium, produces 40% of the world's uranium output and sells it to U.S. and other Western countries, as well as China. So how do u screw up China getting uranium? Take over the seller. And if you become the new seller u are no longer having to pay for it. Just for comparison Russia produces around 5-6% of world's uranium that's around 3,000 ton, while Kazakhstan produces 40% the largest in the world by a long stretch, of around 22,000 ton. Canada is the second highest at 7,000 ton 13-14% so u can see just how much Kazakhstan actually produces.  

    The world nuclear association states 139 new nuclear plants are in the planning stage, and 326 are in the proposal stage, that's over the next two decades. China alone are planning on building 50 by 2030. (500% increase) China will consume one third of the world's uranium market so what better way to screw up China's plans than to remove it's supplier of uranium, replace the seller as yourself (USA). The USA is planning on building 31 new plants and what better way to reduce costs by getting uranium for pretty much free.

    On another note USA doesn't need to buy Russian uranium and especially with tensions high they may fear Russia may stop supply (13%). A breakdown of roughly what US imports.
    Nuclear energy companies in the U.S. didn’t import uranium from China in 2018. Instead, they imported from a variety of countries in short- and long-term contracts: Canada (24%), Kazakhstan (20%), Australia (18%), Russia (13%), Uzbekistan (6%), and Namibia (5%).  so second highest import is Kazakhstan, so if USA controlled that and got it pretty much for free, and even if it lost Russian import it would simply bring the additional 13% from USA controlled Kazakhstan, in fact it would probably rape even more and reduce its import from other countries and get it all pretty much free.

    I rest my case.

    Did the US import Afghanistani uranium under a different label to hide the theft?
