On Wednesday, April 19, Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Russia General Valery Gerasimov announced plans of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) to establish a joint anti-missile system.

The agreement took place at a meeting of the CSTO Military Committee in Belarus, where its members discussed current threats and challenges for the common defence. Currently, the Russian Federation has signed bilateral agreements with Armenia and Belarus, and further negotiations of the air defence unification are expected. Russia has also assisted the CSTO member states in the matter of air defence in the past, however, the idea of such a developed uniform anti-missile defence system has not been raised before. All member states have fairly effective air defence systems that could be integrated into the joint anti-missile system. Together with staff training and the creation of a coordination centre the system could actually be put into operation.
