While war rages in neighbouring Ukraine, Russian President Putin attended the CSTO summit in Armenia on November 23. Putin addressed Russia’s CSTO allies saying they are firmly united by the common history of their victory in "the Great Patriotic War”. Putin pushed the six-nation bloc for more weapons and defence equipment amid reports of depleting Russian arsenal. However, the Russia-led alliance faced a blunt criticism from Armenia for failing to contain “aggression by Azerbaijan”. Experts say recent military setbacks in Ukraine is likely reducing Putin’s influence over allies of the ex-soviet member states.
