CSTO forces demonstrated their combat power at the exercises

17
As part of the unscheduled exercises of the Armed Forces of all six states of the Collective Security Treaty Organization held on November 13-17, 60 combat units were first involved aviation, transmits Interfax a message from Colonel-General Anatoly Sidorov, Chief of the Joint Staff of the CSTO.




We (during unscheduled exercises) demonstrated our firepower. For the first time managed to collect such a large number of military aircraft - 60 aircraft. In addition, strategic bombers were involved, taking off from the territory of the Russian Federation. In general, everything except nuclear weapons and cruise missiles,
Sidorov told in an interview with the newspaper "Izvestia".

Answering the question what is the significance of the current exercises, the Chief of the Joint Staff noted the need to exchange combat experience with the allied countries.

It is important that we gave the Allies the experience of using such means of destruction as strategic bombers and operational-tactical missiles. We gave our partners the practical experience acquired by the Russian Military Space Forces in Syria. In particular, in the course of the exercise, the use of reconnaissance-fire and reconnaissance-shock circuits was developed,
said Sidorov.

    The main thing is to achieve coherence. Well, competent management.

        No no. The main thing is total air defense, but in fact our dome, flight time and a dangerous direction, both on the Western Front and on the Southern. It already justifies everything. Also worked out interaction is needed. In addition to the air defense that both we and them need, the Collective Security Treaty Organization most likely needs them, they dive under our nuclear umbrella. Therefore all the rules good

          I tend to the fact that if there is a serious mess, and not like the 08.08 war, then at best they will immediately jump out under a "neutral" status. Another is strange to wait.

            They are our buffer and, as it were, we mean that the enemy will trample through them, or towards them. Those. they will have nowhere to go. Their parts are territorial defense, and of course there is no need to transfer Kazakhs to Belarus. And our units, having come to their aid, in the menacing period already have experience in cooperation, communication systems, logistics, etc. Therefore, everything is justified.

              With all due respect ... As they vote at the UN, it seems that they can simply open the borders and, as always say, this is not our business! Can you imagine that Kazakhstan will fight against the interests of America?

                Kazakhstan is a buffer from the PRC, primarily from the Islamists. It provides an increase in the flight time of the Kyrgyz Republic and NATO aviation from Afghanistan and the Indian Ocean. Also, the issue of Baikanur and the Sary-Shagan training ground is easier to solve, being in one block. I repeat - the main thing in the CSTO is the common sky, our sky.

        I agree, the Collective Security Treaty Organization is a bluff composed for horror stories about the USA and NATO, in fact it’s a zilch, where Kazakhstan & Co. spit in our backs and stand in line for the Yankees, as if to sell more expensive. They are not an example of Ukraine.

          TS - even worse, maybe, it hits primarily ordinary people. Pay attention to all new inhumane regulations, for example, on the import of used cars, the fight against tuning jeeps, various other restrictions, they are all served under TS sauce. Even the Belarusians had already tasted its fruits, in many places they were much more liberal, but right now everything is licking under the TS, the nuts are tightened, people are suffering as a result.

    Впервые managed to collect such a large number of military aircraft - 60 aircraft

    Some wording is not entirely correct. It is perceived as - collected across all countries and barely scored 60 units. And such exercises are, of course, necessary for organizing interaction in the first place.

    All of these blocks are declarative, and represent only political force. The Warsaw treaty still uses our weapons against us. In reality, only our army and navy will save us. I don’t know why, but we don’t know how to create truly united blocks. Even it would seem that Belarus could change at once. Everything will depend on that or another whim of the leadership, which may (pah, pah) change. I'm not talking about Kazakhstan, which generally began to move away.

    We collected, collected and collected .... it sounds like something from Cheburashka (in the cartoon when they built a house for friends). All these agreements within the framework of the CSTO and their toy armies in the event of a serious kneading are unlikely to be able to provide anything serious. Russia remains, as always, with its Army and Navy.

      I think that this is more so that in the event of an attack on one of these countries, we can enter there for help without any problems.

    No offense to our CSTO allies, but if something happened to any of the allies (God forbid, of course), the “ally” will whimper: Russia, save, we are brothers and allies. But with any opportunity in Russia EVERYTHING! prefer to sit and keep quiet (stupidly hoping that this will not affect them). In the best case, something is squeaked through a diplline. In the event of a conflict, the Kyrgyz and Kazakh soldiers (again no offense, by the way), in the trenches on the western borders of Russia, do not seem to me something. Perhaps only Belarusians will help.
