MOSCOW, 6 March (BelTA) – No plans have been made to use the latest weapons recently revealed by President of Russia Vladimir Putin as part of army exercises of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), BelTA learned from Chief of the CSTO Joint Staff Anatoly Sidorov at a press conference in Moscow on 6 March.

When asked whether state-of-the-art Russian weapons will be used in the course of CSTO army exercises, the officer said: “Certainly not. We don't intend to use them.”

“Because we stage exercises in specific territories, in specific collective security regions. The weapon systems revealed during the president's address to the parliament are strategic weapons and nuclear weapons at that. Certainly, we don't intend to use them. They are a totally different domain,” explained the CSTO Joint Staff chief.
