Russia takes its allies under the anti-missile shield

At the moment, Russia is negotiating the creation of a unified air defense system with Armenia, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. This was announced the day before by the commander-in-chief of the Russian Aerospace Forces Yuri Grekhov.

It should be noted that such "cooperation" is not only important in terms of security, but also economically beneficial to both parties to the agreement. In particular, our country is significantly reducing its air defense costs, since allies will cover it in the corresponding direction. In turn, the latter also have considerable benefits, receiving military machinery to create its own air defense system, not at export prices, but at the CSTO's internal purchase prices.

Recall that in 1995 the CIS Joint Air Defense System was built. To date, Georgia, Turkmenistan and Ukraine have already withdrawn from it. At the same time, the remaining participants created this system back in the Soviet "legacy". It is for this reason that the path of bilateral agreements and regional groupings was chosen.

In April this year, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu agreed to create a similar system with Tajikistan. The agreement is at the stage of ratification. A similar contract was signed with Belarus back in 2009.

By the way, about Tajikistan. The agreement on the creation of a unified air defense system will allow our country to cover all directions from Central Asia. At the same time, no special “investments” from Russia will be required. Our country will transfer the S-300 systems to the ally, which have already replaced the more modern S-400s.

      If only with our calculations and at our military facilities (bases).

      Perhaps the Ministry of Defense calculates the situation better, but I would be careful not to transfer serious equipment into the hands of such "allies" as Armenia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan.

      - Firstly, I strongly doubt that they will be able to master the technique and tactics of its application.
      Secondly, the regimes are unstable, to put it mildly, and we can easily get a continuation of the "American adventures in Afghanistan", where modern air defense systems were handed over to the Taliban.

    The questions immediately arise:
    1. Will the allies manage exactly in their direction, or will it be like in the NKR?
    2. And who will give guarantees that these allies will not abandon us later, like Georgia and Ukraine, and at the most inopportune moment for us?

    We need to close our borders! It was not for nothing that the king said that we have only two allies. Allies are needed, but first of all you need to think about yourself. And in our time, allies are all situational - today they are with us, and tomorrow they are not.

    Why didn't they think about air defense when the US was in Afghanistan? Oh and mediocrity! They also want us to give our children to such an army and to such generals.
