    If we consider the distance traveled as a 25-year period, we will have to admit that although the first ten years laid the conceptual basis for further development, they did not give significant practical results, which led to the withdrawal of the Treaty of Azerbaijan, Georgia and Uzbekistan in 1999 ( The board is drunk and ginger) At the same time, it can be said that the expectations of these countries were somewhat overstated, and the Collective Security Treaty, aimed at responding to external aggression, could not provide a solution to intra-regional conflicts.
    Well, at least something influenced
    Conflict resolution potential: not only the Collective Peacekeeping Forces, which have not yet been involved in real operations, but the political weight of the CSTO Secretary General and his staff, who have repeatedly participated in political consultations on resolving crisis situations in Central Asia - for example, in Kyrgyzstan in 2010 or regarding the border conflict between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan in 2014.

    No one there for an hour friends know? How sometimes the local population behaves sitting on the fence. I have one familiar type, one might say - experienced. I visited a lot, in places for a long time. When in one of the African countries the monkeys behaved the same way, no one knew how to teach them a lesson. It dawned on him - he shot two, the rest of the monkeys (monkeys in the literal sense) forgot how to do dirty tricks. And what did it come to mind? Probably, as Rzhevsky said, to support the conversation.

In which case, Russia can stand up for the allies, but they will find a thousand reasons not to take part in the defense of Russia. Yes, citizens will go to help like a militia, but the state will not support ...
