On the basis of one of the formations of the Airborne Forces of the Russian Federation, stationed in the Moscow region, in the period from 11 to 12 November 2020, a command and staff training was held with the Command of the CSTO Collective Rapid Reaction Forces (CRRF).

"The event will undoubtedly have a positive effect on the skills and abilities of the officers of the CSTO CRRF Command in planning joint operations, in using modern technical means of command. All this will contribute to improving the organization of command and control of the CSTO Troops (Collective Forces)," the Chief of the Joint Staff concluded.
