The Draft Decision of the CFM, the CMD and the CSTO CSSC " On methodological recommendations on preparation and conduct of trainings with peacekeeping contingents of the CSTO member states allocated as part of the CSTO Peacekeeping Forces" was developed by the CSTO Joint Staff taking into account the experience of peacekeeping trainings and as part of work to amend the regulatory acts governing the joint operational and combat training of the CSTO Troops (Collective Forces) to bring the currently effective methodological recommendations in line with the Regulation on procedure for preparation and conduct of joint combat trainings in the CSTO format.
In the course of consultations, draft Methodological recommendations on preparation and conduct of trainings with peacekeeping contingents of the CSTO member states allocated as part of the CSTO Peacekeeping Forces were discussed, finalized and largely agreed upon.

We recall that this year's joint training with the CSTO Peacekeeping Forces "Indestructible Brotherhood-2023" is planned at the final stage of the joint operational-strategic training "Combat Brotherhood-2023". On the territory of the Kyrgyz Republic, the tasks of post-conflict settlement in the crisis zone will be practiced by conducting a peacekeeping operation using the forces and means of the CSTO collective security system in the interests of maintaining peace and security.

For each peacekeeping operation, the composition, structure and size of the Collective Peacekeeping Forces are determined by decision of the CSTO Collective Security Council, based on the scope of the tasks to be performed and the specific situation in the conflict zone.
