Preparations have begun for joint exercises of the CSTO forces

The press service of the main defense department of the country reports that the stage of intensive preparation for the joint exercises of the military personnel of the CSTO states begins. We are talking about military maneuvers, which will start in August at the ranges of the Western Military District of the Russian Federation.
During the on-site meeting of the Ministry of Defense Sergei Shoigu said (quote TASS):

In February of this year, a plan for the use of a regional grouping of troops was signed. In addition, preparations have begun for the command-staff exercise of the Collective Rapid Reaction Forces of the CSTO "Interaction-2016", which will be held in the district in August. (...) close interaction will contribute to the coordination of joint actions to ensure collective security.

In addition, negotiations are under way to prepare for the Rubezh-2016 Central Asian Regional Collective Security Treaty Organization CSTO exercises. CSTO Press Service reports that negotiations are held in Bishkek. During these exercises, which will be held from 4 to 7 in October 2016, will be attended by military personnel and representatives of the Emergencies Ministry, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan units.

    This is the right step! We need to cheer up our allies more often, when it comes out it turns out that they can only ride horses, because the separation of our army from the rest in the CSTO is very significant, they are still essentially in the 20th century, and combat training is still that they have. although of course there are exceptions, but basically this is the case!

    The exercises and coordination of units and formations should be carried out not only in peacetime, but also in pre-war time. Better to shed a bag of sweat than a drop of blood.
