Indestructible Brotherhood 2022


Kyrgyzstan has called off the CSTO’s military drills called Indestructible Brotherhood-2022, which was set to be held in the Central Asian country from October 10 to 14.

Key facts:-

·         Kyrgyzstan  a former Soviet Republic, called off the “Indestructible Brotherhood 2022” command and staff exercise a day before the multinational military exercise was scheduled to commence in its territory.

·         The exercise is joint military drill involving army personnel  from  the Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO) ,  a 6 members security alliance comprising of Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and Tajikistan.

·         Non-member states like Syria, Serbia and Uzbekistan were also invited for this military exercise as observers.

·         The multilateral military drills were set to take place in the eastern highlands of Kyrgyzstan.

·         The cancellation of Indestructible Brotherhood 2022 is the latest show of on-going diplomatic tensions between the members of CSTO.

·         In September 2022, Armenia did not attend a 2 week long joint CSTO military drill organized by Kazakhstan in protest against CSTO’s lack of support during the violent border skirmish between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

·         The CSTO responded to the Armenia and Azerbaijan border tensions by sending just fact finding missions to the border rather than providing military assistance requested by Armenia.

·         The alliance, over the past, has failed to respond to numerous security crisis among its member states.

·         For instance, it did not intervene when its two member states – Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan – were engaged in a three-day border conflict in 2021.

·         Earlier, in September 2022, the two neighbors were engaged in border clashes yet again.

·         Currently, the alliance only focuses on increasing security readiness for potential adverse consequences of US troop pull-out from Afghanistan.

·         Currently, Russia has stationed around 5,000 troops at Tajikistan’s border with Afghanistan.

About CSTO:-

·         Headquartered in Moscow, the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) is an intergovernmental military alliance set up as an alternative to the US-led North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
