Treaty-legal basis of Ukraine and Latvia
15 August 2012 23:53

The Ukrainian-Latvian legal framework commenced to rapidly develop in 1992 following the conclusion of the Protocol on the establishment of diplomatic relations on December 2, 1992 and at this point in time the legal bonds between both sides exhibit the elaborated corpus of the effective instruments in terms of regulating the bilateral cooperation.

As of October, 2019, the legal framework between Ukraine and Latvia totals 90 documents, including 5 interstate treaties, 28 intergovernmental and 57 interagency agreements.

Given the number of the multilateral instruments and other agreements wherein Ukraine and Latvia act as the parties, the related legal framework totals around 300 documents: https://zakon.rada.gov.ua/laws/main/c271. Accordingly, the corresponding instruments embrace the legal relationship between Ukraine and Latvia in all major areas of the bilateral cooperation. In particular, the bilateral interaction is built on the following provisions of:

- the interstate Treaty on friendship and cooperation (dated May 23, 1995; entered into force on May 22, 1996);

- the interstate Treaty on legal assistance and legal relations in civil, family, labor and criminal matters (dated May 23, 1995; entered into force on July 12, 1996);

- the intergovernmental Agreement on promotion and mutual protection of investments (dated July 24, 1997; entered into force on December 30, 1997);

- the intergovernmental Agreement on economic, industrial, scientific and technical cooperation (dated October 5, 2004; entered into force on February 1, 2006) and other documents.

At the present stage of the bilateral relationship, the Ukrainian-Latvian legal framework has been augmented with the intergovernmental Agreement on cooperation in the field of education, science, youth and sports (entered into force in 2019), as well as with the interagency Agreement on cooperation in the field of environmental protection (entered into force in 2017). Moreover, during an official visit of President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy to the Republic of Latvia on October 16, 2019, the sides concluded the Memorandum of understanding between the Ukrainian and Latvian Ministries of Justice (entered into force on the date of its signature).
