Russia and Armenia may soon create a unified air defense system

Moscow and Yerevan will hold talks on the creation of a unified air defense system. The corresponding order was made by Russian President Vladimir Putin on the basis of a proposal received from the government of the country. On the official legal information site published a corresponding document signed by the president the day before.

Russia and Armenia may soon create a unified air defense system

From the document:
To accept the proposal of the Government of the Russian Federation to sign the Agreement between the Russian Federation and the Republic of Armenia on the creation of a unified regional air defense system in the Caucasus region of collective security.

To instruct the Russian Ministry of Defense to conduct negotiations with the Armenian Side with the participation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia and, upon reaching an agreement, sign the said Agreement on behalf of the Russian Federation, allowing it to be made to the project approved by the Government of the Russian Federation, which are not of a fundamental nature.

It should be noted that exactly 20 years ago (in 1995 year) an agreement was signed on the creation of a single air defense system of the countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States. The agreement states that if at least one of the states is subjected to external aggression, it will be considered as aggression against all countries that have signed the agreement. Given the relative difficulties that are observed in terms of military-technical contacts between countries in the CIS format, it is necessary to focus on new regional agreements on collective security.

      That's right, but it's a pity that there is no common border.

        The celestial sphere, on the other hand, will be common, and if anything, then through South Ossetia, a corridor will also cut through.

      military alliance.
      No, it probably continues for free))
      Armenia is very widely represented in Russia through its diaspora,
      and interest in weapons at very reduced prices as well
      constantly voiced through their representatives in Moscow. request

        Armenia in many countries has rather large diasporas. It’s more likely that we need to deliver various kinds of complexes to them in order to be able to monitor what is flying in the sky in the South, far beyond the borders of the world

        In any case, the closer Turkey has, the better. There is a rare case when the interests of the diaspora and the military coincide.

      The return is still far away, and so we are moving in the right direction, the southern direction is the most dangerous for us.

        Well, actually, the 988th anti-aircraft missile regiment, S-300V4 air defense systems, has long been standing in Armenia
        - 9M82VM long-range missiles have a range of 385 km.

          But what about ours, if they are standing there, did not drop the Turkish turntables, brazenly flying in the sky of Armenia?

    It would not be bad to restore a single air defense system with all the former republics of the USSR.

      With the Baltic states, Georgia and Ukraine too? stop
      Agreements must be concluded both within the framework of the CSTO and separately with countries that are members of other unions in which Russia participates! hi

      Especially relevant in relation to the Baltic states.

      as far as I remember (there were also articles on the top thief right now) the only air defense today in Russia is only with Kazakhstan and Belarus

      Obviously. that if Armenia and Kyrgyzstan joined the Eurasian Economic Union, and in the Collective Security Treaty Organization they have already been around for a long time, then the air defense zones will be extended to them. In this case, it is necessary to consider. that the general air defense with Kazakhstan and Belarus significantly enhances the general air defense, t to the control zone, detection and interception significantly removed from the borders of Russia. Kazakhstan’s vast territory provides even more benefits than its s-300 and Sukhoi in Taldyk and Migi 31 in Karaganda

      It is much safer to beat the enemy over our deserted steppes than over the industrial areas of the north of the KZ or the Urals

      In fact, Kyrgyzstan is also in the general air defense - t is already covered by the CSTO air base - there is only Russian equipment there, plus it is covered by the Kazakh air defense in fact, because, due to financial difficulties, Kyrgyzstan itself has no fighter fleet. but God forbid that, it’s clear that the Kazakhstani Air Force will cover the skies of a union republic (and a people very close to us) together with Russia

      two Turkish helicopters flew into the airspace of Armenia on October 6 and 7, and circled for about 3 minutes somewhere over Baghramyan ...
      Turkey will not be happy. She loves to fly to foreign territories. She does not have more than one neighbor, so that she would not fly without demand for them.

    It is worth noting that exactly 20 years ago (in 1995), an agreement was signed on the creation of a single air defense system of countries belonging to the Commonwealth of Independent States.
    The CIS is a stillborn entity, within the framework of which relying on the fulfillment of some contracts and obligations is an empty matter. Now we have gone the right way.

    "Стоит отметить, что ровно 20 лет назад (в 1995 году) было подписано соглашение о создании единой системы ПВО стран, входящих в Содружество Независимых Государств"...

    It is a pity that it has not been implemented ... Moreover, for many reasons ...

    But a single air defense circuit (and missile defense, as I think) is a signal to the Americans, as they like to put it ... You climb into Georgia, however, air defense systems in Armenia will be much earlier ...

    Everything new is well-tested old. Militarily, this is a necessary decision. It is difficult to survive alone.

    К сожалению, все прекрасные инициативы о военном и особенно экономическом взаимодействии России и Армении упираются в "грузинскую проблему". В 2008 году не хватило решимости довести дело до конца и поставить вместо проамериканского президента своего человека,что было бы хорошо, как для нас так и для Грузии.В результате получили вечную головную боль.
    This problem must be solved.

    I think the Armenian gene pool will not suffer much and without a separate air defense umbrella, there will be more of them under the Moscow umbrella than in Armenia itself.

    I think the news will remain so. In order for there to be a single air defense command, it is necessary to place air defense units under the command of the Center. What the same Old Man and the same leadership of Armenia are unlikely to do. Everyone speaks of a common, unified, but does not want to give (delegate) their authority

    They begin to understand that only Russia will protect. The price is worthless to the NATO alliance, which is managed from phasington and works according to the scheme — is there a benefit or not !!!
