Subject The Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) became an important integration project for Russia, ensuring the military security in the region. Russia actively leads the establishment of such organizations, as it tries to secure it dominance in the region and retain allies along its borders.
Objectives The study examines financial mechanisms of the military and technological cooperation among the CSTO member States and the possibility to rely upon the EU experience. Export credit is supposed to be the most appropriate option, since it allows to influence the recipient country and envisages the repayment.
Methods To verify the hypothesis, we analyzed documents in public domain, including statistical data on armaments supplies. We reviewed such supplies from Russia to Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, including those ones financed with export credit, gratuitous aid in exchange of certain preferences, purchase at special prices, gratuitous aid as part of the formation of the single Missile Defense Systems, production cooperation, and the establishment of the European Defence Foundation. Considering the improvement of financial mechanisms for the military and industrial cooperation among the CSTO member States with reference to the EU experience, we apply the systems approach, comparative and statistical methods of research.
Results As the CSTO countries actively purchase armaments, Russia acts as an active player in this process, with the expert credit mechanism being the most effective format of the military and economic cooperation.
Conclusions and Relevance Generally, the CSTO member States can run the single defense fund as a new financial mechanism.
