MOSCOW (ArmRadio)—Member states of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), a Russian-led military alliance which includes Armenia, will consider the establishment of a collective air force, TASS reports.

The matter will be discussed at a joint meeting between CSTO representatives within a joint CSTO military cooperation development concept. Participants in the meeting will discuss the streamlining of Collective Rapid Response Forces and Collective Rapid Deployment Forces in the Central Asian collective security region, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

“Participants in the meeting will consider creation of CSTO collective air force. A plan of joint events in operational and combat training for 2015 is expected to be approved,” the Russian Defense Ministry said.

    Next will be the announcement of a common currency for all EEU members, perhaps adorned with images of Mr. Putin himself, and later followed by a single passport. All national symbols will be dismantled systematical to make room for the new world order according to Mother Russia. As in the past, Armenians will be rewarded for their loyalty and figures like Anastasia Mikoyan will emerge once again. We’re witnessing the resurrection of a new CCCP.

As for the so called Ankaxutyun thats just a word , all it will be is a big family at the end of the day Arjmenia is the one that has to answer to its people, We seat here and talk about this and that , how about we talk about the situation in our community , how about we try to help the kids in our own community , how about we stay united in our own community in the diaspora , why r we so blind that we can not see where our kids are today meaning the jails and juvenile halls , all we do is talk and talk and talk , we need to stop this bullshit about changing the way the system works in Armenia , its been planned all ready how things will be and no one can do anything about it , adapt – overcome – improvise.
