Putin signed the law on leaving the Open Skies Agreement

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the law on the termination of the Open Skies Agreement.

The document was published on the official legal information portal.

“Terminated the Open Skies Agreement signed in the city of Helsinki on March 24, 1992,” the law reads.

The new law was unanimously adopted by the State Duma on May 19. Then, at a meeting of the upper house of parliament on June 2, the senators unanimously approved the law, for which 152 senators voted.

The Open Skies Agreement was one of the confidence-building measures in post-Cold War Europe, which allowed the 34 signatory states to openly gather information on mutual military forces and activities.

The procedure for withdrawing the United States from the Open Skies Agreement began on May 22, 2020, and ended on November 22.

In January 2021, Moscow initiated the procedure of withdrawing from the Open Skies Agreement. In Russia’s opinion, Washington’s actions have significantly upset the balance of interests between the two countries.
