On July 16, this year, a meeting of the Permanent Council of the Collective Security Treaty Organization was held under the chairmanship of Aman Mambetseitov, Permanent and Plenipotentiary Representative of the Kyrgyz Republic.

A draft Decision of the Council of Ministers of Defense of the Organization was also considered. This draft Decision provides the creation of a Working Group on electronic warfare within the CMD CSTO . The purpose of developing the document is to consolidate efforts to realize the potential of the military administration organs, specialized educational and methodological, research organizations, industrial enterprises, other state and public organizations of the CSTO member states on electronic warfare issue. The relevance of this issue is due to the experience of the recent armed conflicts, characterized by the massive use of radio electronic means and means of radio electronic attack, including taking into account the peculiarities of the use of forces and means of radio electronic warfare in the Syrian Arab Republic.

It was decided to send the reviewed documents to the domestic approval.
