While Putin touts his strong alliances during wartime, several countries in Russia’s defense bloc are participating in military exercises with the U.S. like it’s business as usual.

The Biden Administration has begun holding military exercises with countries that are a part of a Russian-led military alliance, the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO).

Tajikistan is hosting the drills, called “Regional Cooperation 22,” while U.S. Central Command organized them, according to the State Department. Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Kazakhstan—each members of Russia’s collective defense organization, akin to North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)—are all participating.

“Regional Cooperation is an annual exercise aimed at strengthening multinational stability operations, counter-terrorism, and developing cooperation and joint combined capabilities among the states of Central and South Asia, the United States and other participating countries,” the U.S. Embassy in Tajikistan said in a statement.

Mongolia, Pakistan, and Uzbekistan are also joining in on the exercises, which are set to last until August 20.
