CSTO. There is a contract, but will there be security?


Let's be honest: the briefing recently held by Colonel-General Anatoly Sidorov, chief of the Joint Staff of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, did not add optimism or confidence in tomorrow. The main leitmotif of the general’s speech was the concern that the NATO member states, in fact, the most likely military adversary for the CSTO member countries, have recently sharply increased their aggressive preparations and their own, clearly unfriendly presence at the borders of these countries. In the light of what has been said, a more than logical question arises: to what extent is the military-political alliance uniting today Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan capable of withstanding the challenges it faces?


This is not about trifles at all: according to General Sidorov, the Alliance in recent years has increased the group of troops of 12 thousand personnel and more than 700 units of military equipment, which includes representatives of the armies of its various members, on the western borders of the CSTO. First of all, the military units deployed in Poland and the Baltic states cause concern. Currently, this process is becoming more and more intensive and global in scope: airbases are being modernized, logistics chains are being improved, everything is being done to strengthen the alliance's capabilities to transfer large army contingents to the east as quickly and as massive as possible.

No less disturbing is the situation on the other “flank” of the Organization - the southeast. There, NATO is trying (and, alas, by no means unsuccessfully) to turn Georgia into its own outpost, which provides increased support in the military sphere, seeking to use this state, as Mr. Sidorov noted, as “the main tool to counter Russia and build up its military influence in the Caucasus ". In a word, the enemy is advancing in all directions ... But what about us? 2019 was rich in various events within the framework of the CSTO: on September 12, the 28th meeting of the Interstate Commission for Military-Economic Cooperation of the Organization was held in Yerevan, on November XNUMX, a session of the Collective Security Council of the Collective Security Treaty Organization was held in Bishkek, in which the heads of the organization’s member states participated.

Already this year, consultations were held at the Joint Headquarters of the Organization, during which senior representatives of the military departments of its member states discussed a draft joint action in the field of operational and combat training for the coming year 2021. In addition, on January 1, 2020, the new CSTO Secretary General, Major General Stanislav Zas, assumed office until recently (since 2015), who headed the Security Council of Belarus. And here very serious questions begin ... They cannot arise even if only because of the extremely difficult processes that are taking place between Minsk and Moscow now, which, alas, show a tendency towards an exacerbation. It is completely possible that the Organization may turn into the next platform for “clarifying relations” between the two countries, which, of course, will in no way contribute to the effectiveness of its work.

These fears are all the more relevant because, according to many analysts, it is Zas who is one of the most influential and active representatives of Minsk, striving to intensify relations between the country and the West. In any case, his participation in last year’s talks held in Warsaw with the secretaries of the Security Councils of Poland and Ukraine, as well as the then National Security Advisor to the US President John Bolton, give certain reasons to take such assumptions seriously. However, even without problems with Belarus, “weak links” and “bottlenecks” in the structure and activities of the CSTO are more than enough. About 20-30 years ago, when the Organization was just beginning its formation, its potential and structure were seen in a slightly different way. It was a question of joint air defense systems, communications and control, which were supposed to link the armies of its member countries, the significant integration of their military-industrial complexes ...

Unfortunately, all this remained at the level of dreams and plans. Over the past years, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan have left the Organization. Unfortunately, it did not, in fact, turn into a true military community. In 2015, Russia's military assistance to Syria in the CSTO found real support only from one member - Armenia, which is extremely dependent on Moscow in the supply of modern weapons.

Yes, the CSTO has achieved undeniable successes in the common fight against terrorism, drug trafficking, and illegal migration. But will she face the much larger challenges of today? On the other hand, the complete disintegration of this alliance, which has repeatedly been predicted by pessimists for many years, has also not occurred.

Most likely, the Collective Security Treaty Organization will soon have to go through trials that will either destroy it or finally give the CSTO an impetus for transformation into a cohesive and efficient military-political bloc.

      But in reality, what can the other members of the CSTO offer, except for political support (and they cannot offer it, Who recognized Crimea?)? The military potential - they have rather low armament - is dependent on Russia ... so the organization since its inception has been a formality!

        Crimea is not our business. To admit is to agree with the fact that the Russian Federation, when it wants, takes part of your homeland. Ukraine is your enemy, and we are a brotherly country. So these are your personal graters.

    I am skeptical of the CSTO ... when it presses again, Russia will have to bear the brunt of the war ... it has always been so.
    Judging by the politics, the CSTO members do not inspire confidence in the Russian-speaking population within their republics, they don’t have any special friendship for us.

            On March 27, 2014, Kazakhstan voted against the adoption of UN General Assembly resolution 68/262 in support of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine. In addition to Kazakhstan, the following countries also voted against this resolution: Burundi, Cambodia, China, Eritrea, India, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar, Philippines, Serbia, South Africa, Tajikistan, Syria, Uganda, Uzbekistan. Thus, we can safely talk about Kazakhstan's support for the reunification of Crimea with Russia.

    The idea was originally stillborn. The "former" republics simply tried to save on security at the expense of the Russian Federation: "This" hare "is my friend ..."
    Who can the border “keep on the far approaches” hold there? NATO, terrorists, drug trafficking or China? It would be more reliable to strengthen our border, and not completely alien.

    “CSTO. There is a treaty, but will there be security?”, History has shown that there is no need for enemies with such allies.
    Sell ​​for a stick from lollipop.
    It is clear that with many it will take another decades to build the border and we need a bridgehead far from it.
    Our troops are sometimes there as hostages and are used for various kinds of provocations against Russia.
    So far, the "allies" are pulling more from her speculating on "friendship."
    Finding our bases on foreign territories is more profitable, not from a military point of view, but economic for the local population, it is recalled how local Georgians protested against the policy of the withdrawal of Russian troops, they were the only ones there who helped local earn money on their services.

    1. I wonder why the author decided that the main opponent for the CSTO-NATO country in a high-intensity conflict? The main deterrent in this regard is the strategic nuclear forces, a block for this, for the most part, is not needed.
    2. In addition to direct conflict, there are other types of conflicts, in particular the possibility of a direct invasion or a terrorist threat, which is much more likely than the Third World War. The author himself noted that the organization works in countering these threats. Russia is cheaper to support allies than to have potentially hostile regimes in its neighbors, one example of Ukraine is worth it.

    CSTO is a defensive organization, various structures have been created under the treaty, such as the CRR, and groupings have been created. The CSTO headquarters give various instructions and they are carried out by members of the organization. Exercises are held, contributions are made by participants. Of course, not all the armies of the participating countries are under a million, but nonetheless ..
    And what is not included in the scope of the contract does not need to be dragged. Let's say what the hell surrendered to the countries participating in the adventure in Syria !? Why does the author provocateur indicate precisely this reason in the split of the treaty !?
    The external enemy will attack then we will become shoulder to shoulder, as has happened more than once. The armies are not numerous, but there is a mobilization reserve, food, political forces, etc. Kyrgyzstan alone in the political arena is worth a lot!
    And to us, Kazakhstan, all nuclear powers promised eternal peace for centuries. (But this is not an axiom kaneshno)

                Russians that do not read Cossack in Cyrillic, that in Latin, can even begin on the contrary! And for Russian-speaking, everything is in Russian all around.
                From the south and west of Kazakstan, families move to Astana so their children forget the Cossack, begin to speak Russian. This is a fact, so do not la la. We have a problem with the union remained the preservation of the language.
                Come to Kazakhstan and ask friends - out of 100 cable TV channels, only about 15-20 channels in mixed form i.e. Russian-Kazakh, the rest in Russian, what are you worried about !?
                The Latin is the internal affair of the Cossacks; it does not affect the Russian-speaking in any way.

      But nothing that one of the main goals of Russia’s arrival in Syria was the fight against terrorism. And there were a lot of immigrants from the CIS countries - militants, many from Asia, too, who went under the banner of ISIS. And there was a threat of the return of these militants home and the creation of various terrorist cells near us. What has the CSTO done to prevent the threat? Moreover, the fight against terrorism was emphasized in all documents of this "organization". And what is the result? Russia alone decided to take offense for everyone, even purely symbolically they could send advisers, or guards for the same Khmeimim, just to indicate their presence, not to mention the hostilities, but even this was not done. Therefore, the author is right that the CSTO needs changes, because now there is no sense in this organization.

    There shouldn’t be grudges against Kazakhstan, we have a group of troops of the Russian Federation deployed, training ranges are in operation, the fate of the S-500, the latest Iskander missiles depend on one Saryshagan, and even ballistic missile tests are carried out from the territory of the Russian Federation, and then they are shot to Kamchatka.

    Ukraine is your enemy, and we are a brotherly country. So these are your personal graters
    Probably, they were mumbling together and digging the Black Sea? And if you really hold it, then to whom run for help? To Ukraine or maybe China? It’s clear that it’s about Russia, but when you need to support it at least politically, it’s not our business. Isn't it strange?

        They died in the Second World War, so as not to get into the concentration camp line. Buildings were built by the peoples of the USSR. And now the autonomous peoples did not even recognize Crimea.

          It is those brothers of the republic who destroyed the USSR in Belovezhskaya Pushcha!
          And of course I was taught to write correctly in Russian, even in Cossack and English, but what else can you boast about writing in a non-native language !?

    Complex issue.
    One thing is obvious, until Russia decides on its strategic interests and starts / can firmly defend them, the rest, around and around, will wiggle there and there.
    Those. reliance on your FORCE! As always.

        This does not happen. Switzerland quickly forgot about all sorts of “banking secrets” and “centuries-old traditions” when the Ministry of Finance and the tax authorities of the minke whales turned their eyes to them! I wonder why?

            One thing is obvious, most states, firms, companies, WANTS to be friends with the stripes and pays them when they roll out claims and fines ... they don’t hear the other, they don’t write ANYWHERE!
            Find an example when and to whom the Yankees paid ??? If there are no such examples, then WHY?

    [/ quote] In 2015, Russia's military assistance to Syria in the CSTO found real support only from one member - Armenia, which is extremely dependent on Moscow in the supply of modern weapons.


    How? Chefs and doctors? A certain number of Armenians live in Syria, they are sometimes called Assyrians. Armenia, in fact, was originally supposed to get involved in the matter.

    In the three years that a military operation has been ongoing in Syria, 112 Russian soldiers have died. This was announced by Viktor Bondarev, chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Defense and Security, Interfax quotes his words.
    “At the moment, the loss of our Armed Forces in Syria is 112 people, almost half of which is the An-26 disaster and the downed Il-20. Of the technology, 8 planes, 7 helicopters, and possibly 1-2 armored personnel carriers and an armored car were lost, ”he said. [Quote]
    and this is only by officialdom, although some sources voiced the figure in the region of 1500. And how much did the Armenian army lose?))

    There will be no security, since all these Russophobia-affected countries of the former USSR will not go to war for the interests and territorial integrity of the Russian Federation ... but in the event of attacks by third countries, they will start to seek help from the Russian Federation ... Such an agreement does not meet the interests of the Russian Federation

      Russophobia! ... It’s in your brain, you are Russophobia yourself!
      What a phobia, if there is, for example, in Kazakhstan, is Sinophobia! Or caiophobia as convenient. And Russophobia is a myth. Maybe she is with Amers and other Westerners, we don’t need to ascribe this to our classmates.

        Among my friends there are two families of Russian refugees from Alma-Ata ... If Putin has all partners, then this is his problem, because he does not have to wishful thinking ... Russophobia is reality, this is what all republics separated from Russia are on the former USSR built their rotten independence ..

            Yes, not Russia, but the Soviet nationals, with their bajas and kings and fables about the ever-drunk Russians whom you supposedly fed in the USSR ... In the same Ukraine, they promised life as in Canada, as soon as Ukraine separated from the supposedly lazy, always drunk ,older brother...

        You have to be stupid. To think so. It’s not Putin pulling up Nazarbayev. And Nazarbayev is PR for all these problems. And really not having the opportunity to help them somehow solve It is just serious that no one is talking in world politics. And few people know him in the world. All meetings with major politicians are paid by Kazakhstan. Purely for his PR Elbasy

    And no one pulled Nazarbayev up. Simply Elbasy imagined himself as a great peacemaker. With all due respect.

    It is necessary to conduct a policy with our so-called partners in the blocs, including the CSTO, requiring them to prove their “brotherhood” both in the CSTO, in the SCO, and in other alliances and blocs, not with words but with deeds! There must be one principle, verified by the historical past - "He who is not with us is against us!" We must learn to influence the events in the former Soviet republics from the inside, in conjunction with economic impact! Learn from the USA! Method - "carrot and stick!" nobody canceled yet !!!

    CSTO still-born structure .. The only hope is that they won’t betray us right away .. Although ... They will betray ..
    For example, Armenia .. Why do we need this cunningly impoverished impoverished country living exclusively at the expense of Russia? Indeed, by and large, we have graters with Azerbaijan solely because of them .. But only Azerbaijan is a rich and more successful country, and Armenia is a parasite on the neck of Russia .. You tell him he will leave us and thank God !! There was such a parasite. Georgia left Russia and immediately fell under the USA and Turkey, and why? Has it become bad for us? Duck, as it were, it’s not at all .. It wouldn’t hurt to act tighter in relation to this misunderstanding .. It’s the same with Armenia .. Belarusians soon jump up on a freebie crane quietly at our expense, and it seems to me to hold a referendum there on joining the composition of Russia will be 90% .. This is a mustached collective farmer this action is a Faberge sickle, and people are categorically FOR .. The only question is how much Russia needs it .. The rest just by the old tradition just stick to Russia and they don’t have any options .. Will leave the dribbling of their existence will begin, and with it war, and devastation, and famine, epidemics .. Nobody except Russia will feed them! And they will suck that minuscule from the leftovers and knit it with blood for the next throw to Russia .. They themselves will not be able to maintain a decent standard of living .. They have little more understanding of this ..

    Russia's mistake is that it measures everything in money, the human resource cannot be estimated, it is priceless.
    Europe is striving for a single army, In the United States there is no army on a regular basis and a single army. NATO itself is not stable, as soon as a roasted rooster pecks, at least half will reverse.
    And the Soviet Union functioned as a single structure, as a single state, and it was not a Ukrainian Kazakh or Kyrgyz or Russian who lived on the territory of the Union, but a single Soviet people with a single army
    and until this authorities understand, Russia will always be alone.
