Moscow leads the CSTO, an intergovernmental military alliance of six post-Soviet states: Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, and Tajikistan.

For 2023, Russia will host eight bilateral military drills with India, Laos, Pakistan, Algeria, Mongolia, Vietnam, Shanghai Cooperation Organization members, and the CSTO’s Collective Rapid Deployment Forces.
