Describing the military and political situation in the regions of the CSTO area of responsibility, he noted that within the framework of the CSTO Collective Forces development in 2021, “a series of joint military exercises Combat Brotherhood 2021 was conducted to improve units’ cooperation and combat readiness and to demonstrate commitment to protect sovereignty and territorial integrity of the CSTO Member States.”
Most of these exercises took place on the territory of the Republic of Tajikistan, and the main topic of these exercises, as the CSTO Secretary General reported, was combating possible infiltration by terrorist and extremist groups and illegal armed formations, “in other words, we set the exercises’ training purpose based on the actual situation in this area.”
