The involvement of the military of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) countries in a full-scale war against Russia in Ukraine was not discussed at the summit of leaders in Moscow. This was said by the secretary general of the organization Stanislav Zas, writes UNIAN.
"Today during the meeting, Russian President Vladimir Putin informed his colleagues in great detail about the course (of the war in Ukraine, - ed), which the Russian Federation is conducting in Ukraine. The question of any participation of the CSTO in this (war) was not raised and not discussed," he stressed.
Zas said about the sharp increase in aggressiveness of some countries and alliances against the CSTO.
"The heads of state noted that the number of challenges and threats to security, not only in the organization's area of responsibility, but also in the world as a whole, is steadily growing. The sharp increase in aggressiveness of world powers and military-political blocs against Russia and its allies has become a serious challenge for CSTO member states," he said.
The joint statement of the CSTO leaders stresses the importance of reducing tension on the continent, as well as the readiness to establish cooperation with NATO.
