Finland and Russia terminate border cooperation agreement

The Finnish government has issued a decree stating that the state is breaking off bilateral border cooperation with the aggressor country Russia. Moscow announced this step a month ago.

The document was published on the Finnish government's website on Thursday, November 30. Thus, the country recognized the document on the implementation of the agreement between Moscow and Helsinki on border cooperation as inactive.

It was in effect for the past 12 years and provided that the countries would jointly engage in the socio-economic development of the border regions. The Russian Federation and Finland also agreed to create conditions for the transportation of passengers and goods, in particular, to equip border crossing points on the border, as well as conditions for tourism.

As it was noted, the termination of this agreement will take effect on January 24, 2024.

The termination of the agreement was initiated by the aggressor country Russia. Moscow sent a corresponding "note" to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland at the end of October 2023.

"Since the agreement was terminated at the initiative of the other party, only the resolution on the entry into force of the agreement is canceled. The resolution will enter into force on January 24, 2024, simultaneously with the entry into force of the termination of the agreement," the Finnish government said in a statement.
