Kyrgyzstan today placed an order for S-300 air defense systems and drones with Russia.

"The agreements on further military-defensive cooperation were important. In particular, agreements on shipment of S-300 missile systems and strike drones, which will become Russia’s important contribution to the security of both the Kyrgyz republic and the EAEU and CSTO outer borders," President Sadyr Zhaparov’s spokeswoman Galina Baiterek announced Friday.

Russia and Kyrgyzstan signed an inter-governmental agreement on cooperation in military-technical field eight years ago. It calls for the shipment of $1 billion worth of modern weapons to the republic.

Both states are members of the Collective Security Treaty Organization. Russia’s United military base, which also includes the Kant Air Force base, is located in the Republic.
