The “militants” who were waiting for this cargo tried to attack the peacekeepers and repel their vehicles with weapons.

All these tasks were completed successfully. I assess the actions of the peacekeeping units of the six CSTO member states as successful. I believe that next year, we will improve the level of interaction and solve more capacious and efficiently performed tasks assigned to the CSTO. ”


CSTO Deputy Secretary General Valery Semerikov noted the coherence of the actions of the Collective Peace-keeping forces  units during the exercise and gave them a positive assessment. He also said: “Today the demand for peacekeeping units of the CSTO, which can perform their functions not only in the CSTO member states, but also outside its borders, is mandated by the UN Collective Security Council. At the end of September last year, a relevant memorandum was signed between the CSTO Secretariat and the UN Peacekeeping Department, which reflects the basic principles of cooperation in the field of peacekeeping. ”

As a result of the simulated situation, all the necessary draft documents were worked out and the CSTO CSC Mandate was given to the Commander of the Collective Peacekeeping Forces, who was appointed Major General Konstantin Kastornov , the newly appointed chief of staff of the 35th Army of the Eastern Military District.

He was taken to a medical unit, but could not be saved. Speaking at a rally to close the exercise, the Commander of the Central Military District Nikolai Bogdanovsky and Deputy Secretary General of the CSTO Valery Semerikov expressed their condolences to the relatives and friends of the deceased sergeant. 


The exercise ended with the awarding of medals and valuable gifts to distinguished soldiers and officers. The medal "20 years of the Collective Security Treaty" was awarded to 17 military personnel from all contingents and the joint command of the CMS of the CSTO. After receiving awards to the melody and the performance of national anthems by the troops, the flags of the CSTO member states were lowered, the peacekeeping contingents in full gear with weapons, minting every step, passed under the banner with a solemn march.
