Sivkov: CSTO cannot take part in the operation on the territory of Ukraine

Moscow does not need to involve allies in the CSTO in a special operation in Ukraine, since it is able to independently carry out the necessary military tasks. The organization's mandate for this was not received, so the CSTO cannot participate in the Ukrainian events. This opinion was expressed by military expert Konstantin Sivkov.

Russia began hostilities in Ukraine without resorting to the CSTO, so there is no reason to introduce the corresponding article of the Collective Security Treaty to attract other countries

- the analyst noted on the air of the morning program "Lituchka" of the RT Stream channel.

At the same time, Sivkov drew attention to the fact that the absence of such a need is indicated by the non-participation in the special operation of Belarus and other countries.

The operation is developing quite successfully, taking into account the specific circumstances.

- the expert emphasized.

In addition, Konstantin Sivkov recalled that Kazakhstan once turned to the CSTO countries for military assistance, and they took part in restoring order in Nur-Sultan and other cities.

Now the situation in Ukraine is completely different. Russia is conducting a special operation on its own initiative

Sivkov concluded.

Meanwhile, on May 16, the Russian capital will host a CSTO summit timed to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the signing of the Collective Security Treaty. The event will be held in the format of an official breakfast, during which the leaders of the member states of the bloc will exchange views on the current situation in the region and in the world and develop common approaches to counter modern challenges.

One of the main topics of the meeting will be joint cooperation and collective work in terms of import substitution.

The leaders of Belarus and Kazakhstan, Alexander Lukashenko and Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, have already arrived in Moscow to participate in the meeting.

Earlier, the head of the Belarusian military department, Viktor Khrenin, expressed the opinion that in the coming years, the CSTO is likely to expand, which could include dozens of states.

    some kind of slyness, first of all in Belarus, this is our main alliance, which Russia feeds and saves. In gratitude, the mustachioed one is obliged to enter the war on his own, or again "this is not our war" and Russia again does not support the Belarusian economy financially enough, give us C400 and etc., in a word, the whole essence of this tractor driver is revealed once again, rotten

    Sivkov: CSTO cannot take part in the operation on the territory of Ukraine

    Probably cannot, but most importantly - does not want to!

    ... Kazakhstan at one time turned to the CSTO countries for military assistance ...

    A little more than 4 months have passed since "their time".
    About Kazakhstan, about 20 thousand militants from the mountains, who allegedly wanted to "turn over" President Tokarev at the instigation of ex-President Nazarbai, everyone is silent, like a fish on ice laughing And these militants themselves, in the amount of as many as 20 thousand, also evaporated without a trace. lol
