Russia endorses agreement with Tajikistan on the creation of integrated air defense system

 The Government of the Russian Federation has endorsed a government-to-government agreement between Russia and Tajikistan on the creation of an integrated air defense system, ASIA-Plus reported citing TASS.

The agreement was signed by defense ministers of the two countries in Dushanbe on April 27, 2021. The integrated air defense system is reportedly designed to increase the reliability of the protection of the state border in the airspace

The agreement is concluded for an indefinite period, but each of the parties has the right to terminate it at any time by sending prior written notification to the partner.

Tajikistan-Russia integrated air defense system will become part of the unified air defense system of the CIS member states.

According to TASS, the CIS unified air defense system currently comprises 19 aviation units, 38 anti-aircraft missile formations, 15 radio-technical units, nine air defense brigades, and three electronic warfare units. The national commands exercise command and control of these forces and capabilities while the chairman of the Air Defense Coordination Committee coordinates joint activities.
