CSTO exercise Combat Brotherhood 2017 to begin October 3

The operational-strategic exercise of the CSTO "Combat Brotherhood-2017" will be held from 3 to 20 October.

The CSTO countries intend to work out the strategy of the joint operation to localize an armed conflict.

Organizers note that the maneuvers will be held in the Caucasus and Central Asian regions of collective security, as the Belarusian-Russian exercise "West-2017" was recently held in the Eastern European zone of CSTO responsibility.

The upcoming maneuvers will involve 12,000 troops.

In addition, 1,500 units of equipment and about 90 aircraft will be involved.
