The Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) represents the most developed and deepest form of institutional defense and security cooperation in the post-Soviet space. This international organization includes member states that are connected by a wide scope of competence in the area of preserving regional security. Although there are other organizations in the same region besides the CSTO, such as the Commonwealth of Independent States, the Eurasian Union, and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, their reach in the security sector is relatively small. It should be noted that the leading power in the CSTO is the Russian Federation, and considering the current geopolitical events in the world, the CSTO is gaining more and more importance. In addition to an overview of the role and place of the CSTO, the paper also presents the current situation and perspectives, as well as the challenges faced by the CSTO. Finally, as the leading international regional organization in the field of security in the post-Soviet space, the CSTO became a key element in the emergence of multipolarism in Eurasia. In this regard, the paper looks at the relations that Serbia has developed with this international organization in the meantime.
