Russia has fallen behind its old ally, and Moscow is angry

The Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO in English, ODKB in Russian) is a military alliance between Russia and some other successor states of the Soviet Union, which was created as a sort of anti-NATO after the breakup of the Soviet Union. The organization’s only significant military power is Russia, and the defense expenditures of the other countries—Kazakhstan, Belarus, Armenia, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan—lag far behind Moscow’s.

Armenia withdrew from the organization and alliance with Russia long ago.

Because Moscow basically did not budge from the region formerly inhabited by Armenians but owned by Azerbaijanis Nagorno Karabakh It is over this issue that Yerevan and Baku have fought several wars with each other in recent decades. Finally, in September, Azerbaijan occupied the region in one day, and most of the Armenians fled.

Pashinyan said before the Armenian parliament, on Wednesday, that the Moscow-led military coalition is unable to protect Armenia’s interests over and over again. He added that he is now looking in several directions regarding security issues in Yerevan, but No decision has been made yet on whether they will leave KBSZSZ.

Maria Zakharova According to a Russian foreign affairs spokesman, Basingan’s decision to stay away from the CSTO summit is the latest in a series of events.

It is clear that the West is behind this. The West, whose plans in Ukraine failed, is now putting pressure on Armenia and trying to wrest it away from Russia

The spokesman, known for his sharp statements, said Wednesday.
