    And where is Azerbaijan, Moldova and Turkmenistan? Although it’s understandable in principle, the very participation of Armenia and Azerbaijan in the same exercises to protect each other’s sky would be insanely funny))) The participation of Krygiz, Tajiks and Uzbeks, who obviously will not protect each other’s sky, is also ridiculous . In short, another blah blah, like the CIS itself)))

      I agree with you that, unfortunately, it is difficult to imagine the teachings of Armenia and Azerbaijan together - or Uzbeks and Kyrgyz
      But still ... the combination of air defense is VERY correct

      So far, the integration troika of the Russian Federation really unites the air defense system, we and the Belarusians - but this is a BIG deal - and no blah - the air defense zone is expanding immediately and in general I will sleep more calmly, knowing that besides ours with 300 and the air force (albeit enough good) there is a reserve somewhere in Omsk or Chelyabinsk

      and exercises involving Uzbeks and Tajiks and others are also correct - let a reflex be worked out in the future - who are their allies
