Armenian MFA: a joint air defense system with the Russian Federation will strengthen the republic’s defense capabilities
At the signing of the agreement, December 2015.

On Wednesday, CSTO Secretary General Nikolai Bordyuzha said that the project to create a joint defense of the Russian Federation and Armenia "is being considered at the legislative level of both states."

“This agreement will strengthen our air defense forces. In addition, Russian equipment will provide new, better opportunities, ”Kocharyan told reporters.

He recalled that similar agreements are already in force in other zones of the CSTO. “From a military point of view, the CSTO is divided into three zones: the western, where the armed forces of Russia and Belarus operate, the second - the Central Asian, where Russia and Central Asian countries operate, and the third direction - the South Caucasus, where the armed forces of Armenia and Russia operate. That is, this is a general program within the CSTO, ”the diplomat said.

Earlier, on June 3, the commission on foreign relations of the Armenian parliament approved the inclusion in the agenda of the agreement on the creation of a unified regional air defense system in the Caucasus region of collective security between Russia and Armenia.

As explained by the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Republic, Ara Nazaryan, “the general control of troops belonging to the unified air defense system will be under the jurisdiction of Russia, and some will be controlled by the military leadership of Armenia.”

The agreement on the creation of a regional air defense system was signed by the heads of military departments Sergey Shoigu and Seyran Ohanyan in December last year.

                Probably, a "single air defense" will be created with Armenia - and not "united as with the CIS countries - because there is a difference

                who are interested in the details - I quote fragments
                ".. why such a 'single system' is being created when there is a 'joint air defense system' of the CIS countries? Former Deputy Minister of Defense of Kazakhstan, Major General Valery Sapsay, in a telephone conversation with an Azattyk reporter, says that a distinction must be made between the two concepts: "And" unified air defense system ".

                - The agreement on the integrated air defense system of the CIS countries, which was signed as far back as the 1990's, involves only the exchange of information between national air defense systems. The agreement on the unified Kazakh-Russian air defense system, in theory, should include the creation of a unified command in one command center (most likely in Moscow), from where the order should be promptly received - after coordination either with the presidents of both states or with the president of that country whose airspace is violated - to destroy an air target, ”says Valery Sapsay.

                Kazakhstan and Russia are successfully forming a unified air defense system. This was stated by Minister of Defense of the Republic of Kazakhstan Imangali Tasmagambetov during a meeting with his Russian counterpart Sergei Shoigu in Moscow, Rosbalt.ru reports.
                “The issue of creating a unified regional air defense system of Russia and Kazakhstan went through all legal procedures and went to the line of practical formation of the system,” quoted RIA Novosti, the Kazakh Minister.
                He noted that the commander of the unified air defense system has not yet been appointed, but the decision on his candidacy has already been approved by the President of Russia and will soon be signed by the head of Kazakhstan.
                “Thus, in fact, this system begins to work in practical terms,” Tasmagambetov said.
                As previously reported, the troops of a single regional air defense system will be led by a commander who is appointed by the presidents of Kazakhstan and Russia.

      We were very let down by the fact that the Azerbaijani authorities blocked our access to the largest early warning radar station in the region, which they inherited from us since Soviet times. The offer of the lease renewal price was just deliberately overestimated by the Azerbaijani side so many times that we could not agree to this under any circumstances ... (((and this was done naturally, but by someone’s personal instigation ...!
      And this is more than a tangible loss, which must now somehow be compensated ....!

    The agreement was signed on time. Especially considering Erdogan's increasingly inappropriate behavior. He is now angry, like a mad dog, after the "scam" with a visa-free regime, the adoption by the Bundestag of the act recognizing the Armenian genocide, the embargo on the supply of Turkish agricultural products and other "joys". God forbid, he will leave, finally, from the coils and give the order for airstrikes, under the guise of protecting "Azerbaijani brothers" ...
    And now, even though he was moved, he would think a hundred times, imagining what could remain of his aircraft.

    We would have entered the Russian Federation on the basis of autonomy and would not have been soared! And you would be calm, calm would be, but we are generally class! The border with an ally Iran, Mr. Iskander-M is closer to Erdogan so that the Armenian genocide does not forget and the late Hero of Russia, Lieutenant Colonel Peshkov, remembered to the grave. There you look and they returned Ararat home, but what? We have experience in returning territories and there are people who will do it quietly and politely!

      If there weren’t Nagorno-Karabakh, then this option could still be considered, for example, in the form of the union state Russia-Belarus-Armenia ...

    So I don’t seem to insist, the collective farm is voluntary! And if we take into account the amount of assistance to Armenia, both military and financial, we will not lose much if we enter, and the Armenians on the streets of Russia are also not unusual in television, by the way, either.

    I think the matter is not only and not so much in protecting against the Turkish people, but in the desire to prevent a new conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia. For the former, this is a signal that Armenia is an ally of Russia, for the latter, responsibility to Russia. Let's hope it helps.

      It is not a secret for Azerbaijan, who controls Armenia and whose FORPOST it is.
      The fact that the air defense of Armenia now controls the Russian Federation does not change anything. Since this air defense is hiding over the sky of Nagorno-Karabakh, there will not be much influence because the Azerbaijani air force is too small for such a number of air defense and so far no one wants to sell modern air forces to Azerbaijan. helicopters, but enough for them and MANPADS. While there is a question with the purchase of Pakistani fighters of Chinese assembly, but also really.

    It would be interesting to know what and how much will be strengthened? 5 S-300PS divisions were handed over to Kazakhstan, like 3 divisions of Belarus. All the same, Armenia has a conflict situation with Azerbaijan, I hope they will send something newer there.

      Several divisions of S-125 and S-300PT (towed) now protect the sky of Armenia, the Russian base is covered by S-300В. The S-300PS and S-300PT air defense systems now use one SAM - 5В55РМ with a launch range of 90 km.

    I understand everything, allied commitments and all everything, but now the main thing in this moment is not to make the enemy of Azerbaijan. Baku is looking in the direction of Turkey, but I think there I understand perfectly that they can be targeted, and Aliyev is not suitable for the leader of the democratic regime. There are all prerequisites for rapprochement of positions, dialogue and normal relations.

    I do not look either towards Armenia or towards Azerbaijan. I simply state the fact that the deployment of air defense systems in Armenia is a good bonus to Russian air defense. At one time I had to visit Baku and what I observed there: the Armenians fought with the Azeris, the Azerbaijanis won the place under the sun from the Armenians, and in most cases they united and beat us Russians, sending us three letters to all known addresses. And it didn’t care that some were Muslims, second Christians — the main thing was that there shouldn’t be Russians. More truly were, but it seems servants at bei.
    Now, many take up arms against me and blame me - let them. The main thing is that for two years I have been in Baku together with the same Russian boys (here it is - distribution after schools / institutes) back to back and beat off from Azeris and Armenians. And this is in Soviet times.
    You cannot believe either one or the other. They understand only strength and a stick, and of course the trick, of course, where would it be without it. East is a delicate matter.

    Armenia, sandwiched from almost all sides by Muslim countries that constantly doomed it to suffering and almost destroyed it at all, is doomed to be our ally, especially since it owes Russia its rebirth after the Persians and Ottomanism. Well, in fact, it’s not for Georgia to go to her for help. Georgia will also wish something for this help from the already tormented territory! Especially today, Armenia to get closer to Georgia - therefore, lose Russia as an ally. The loss is clearly superior to the acquisition.
    Our, seemingly for a long time, cooling off with Turkey is good for Armenia - its value as an ally is growing: our bases there will become the most important reference point on land traffic "if something happens." So we need each other, and the recent agreement on the supply of arms to Azerbaijan is, perhaps, a forced preventive step to deliver already integrated with our air defense in Armenia.

      you didn’t ask why Armenia was surrounded by "enemies". Because it has territorial claims to all its neighbors from Azerbaijan and demands Nagorno-Karabakh from Turkey to Anatolia from Georgia, Dvakh and Akhalkalaki. Only from Iran it does not demand anything yet, but this is so far as this is the only chance for Armenia to survive.
