according to Russian news agency reported on February 5, CIS Collective Security Treaty Organization (the “Collective Security Organization”) at a special summit in Moscow the same day. The meeting could be a watershed event, because the participating G-7 leaders are ready to Russia last year’s, reaction force on the formation of collective operations implement the recommendations, which Baji security organization into a military – political alliance.
led Russia to build “Seven coalition”
reported that this decision will set safety and fundamental change in the nature of the organization. Manchester Luge press secretary of the organization Horowitz said: “The parties have reached agreement on related matters of course, the composition of the collective reaction force operations, finance, and command and other issues, has not yet decided, but the president who signed the relevant documents , everything will be finalized. “
learned, the collective reaction combat force will include representatives from Russia, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Belarus, the seven countries of the motor forces and other military forces, mostly by Russian and Kazakh military components. Russia will provide an airborne brigade and an Airborne Assault Brigade, the Kazakh side to provide an airborne Assault Brigade, and other allies may send a battalion each.
peacetime, the force under the command of national military institutions, CSTO joint command is only responsible for coordination. And in the event of invasion or face the threat of a crisis situation, the use of the collective decision of combat reaction force set by the Security Council to make a collective security organization.
grid in Russia after the conflict, Russia was in a confrontation with the West edge of the outbreak. December 19, CSTO leaders in Kazakhstan’s capital Astana near the meeting participants generally endorsed the framework of the Collective Security Organization set up a collective response to combat the power of ideas. It is said that Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev played a key role.
basic elimination of the main obstacles
allies in support of the majority, Moscow began to accelerate the adoption of decisions led to the formal. Later, Medvedev also are to not attend the meeting in Astana President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko and Uzbek President Islam Karimov made interpretation, the two heads of state were not disputed.
However, there may be a few days ago, or threaten the success of the summit held in the accident. Tajik President Rakhmonov suddenly announced not to participate in CSTO Summit in Moscow, the official reason is that “domestic energy tensions”, in fact, is the dissatisfaction tower built water conservancy facilities in Moscow, the “pro-position in Uzbekistan.” If the absence of a leaders summit, it means that the formation of a collective reaction force operations will be postponed.
This is clearly not in the Kremlin’s plan. Russia’s “Kommersant” that in order to make a change of heart Rakhmon, the Russian authorities to make every effort, including a request with the Kyrgyz President Kurmanbek Bakiyev emergency telephone tower side. Ultimately, the Tajikistan Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced on February 3, Rakhmon will fly to Moscow. Formation of the “Seven coalition forces,” the last obstacle was thus removed.
contend with the West in order to protect their own interests
on the set of military security organization established within the framework of the purpose, as early as last September, the Moscow summit, Dmitry Medvedev had a brief description. According to him, everyone wants to form a new organization based on international law, the agency “does not allow to establish a unipolar world order as its own national dominance.” Obviously, he is alluding to where the United States.
be approved at the December 20 “Russian Federation, the draft National Security Strategy 2020″, also may use the collective strength to respond to the challenge of combat reactions were expressed. The document predicts that competition will intensify the world’s energy, energy competition in at least three “hot spot” directly in the CSTO zone of interest, “including the Middle East, continental shelf and the Arctic Barents Sea, the Caspian basin and Central Asia and other regions.”
reaction force Moscow to accelerate the formation of collective operations there is another reason, namely fear of Western countries (first the United States) have set security options to influence members of the Organization, to strengthen some of the national territory in military presence. Moscow believes that external forces to actively participate in CSTO affairs would undermine its unity, and fighting to protect this unity is a collective reaction force mission.
However, the reform of the Russian Foreign Ministry to participate in the preparation of the sources of the “Kommersant” that should not be exaggerated the impending change, they should not be compared with NATO in the organization. He stressed that Russia will become a set of checks and balances safety organization tool to say NATO is a collective response to combat task forces responsible for the “simplistic understanding.”
