    Today, Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Russia - First Deputy Minister of Defence, General of the Army Valery Gerasimov met with his Kazakhstan's counterpart in Moscow, Lieutenant General Murat Maykeev.

    “This year we plan a number of important operational and combat training activities. The main one is the participation of the contingent of the Kazakhstan's Armed Forces in the Tsentr 2019 strategic post exercise, said Valery Gerasimov during a conversation with Murat Maykeev.

    According to Valery Gerasimov, Kazakhstan is the main strategic ally and the closest partner of Russia in Central Asia. At the same time, there is successful cooperation not only on a bilateral basis, but also at the sites of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).

    "We are improving our unified regional air defence system, joint planning of the use of the armed forces of Russia and Kazakhstan is carried out. We are also actively involved in military-technical cooperation in the field of military personnel training. In addition, the traditionally good exchange of delegations in various areas of the armed forces is organized, ”the Chief of the General Staff of Russia added.

    “A wide range of practical cooperation in the fight against international terrorism is also possible. Given the current military-political situation, I consider this issue important, ” concluded Valery Gerasimov.

    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.
