Putin signed Denunciation Law of Dovs

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law on Russia’s denunciation of an agreement on ordinary armed forces in Europe (DOVS). The corresponding document was published by the official portal of legal information.

“Denanging the Treaty on ordinary Armed Forces in Europe, signed in the city of Paris on November 19, 1990,” the document says.

Earlier it became known that Putin began preparing Denunciation Devsa. This followed from the order published on the official portal of legal information. Later, the draft law was submitted to the State Duma, which denounced it on May 17. Later, denunciation was approved by the Council of Ministers of the Russian Federation.

The Treaty of ordinary Armed Forces in Europe (DOVS) was signed on November 19, 1990 in Paris by plenipotentiary representatives of sixteen Participants of NATO (Belgium, Great Britain, Germany, Greece, Denmark, Iceland, Spain, Italy, Canada, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Netherlands Norway, Portugal, USA, Turkey and France) and six member states of the Warsaw Treaty (ATS) (Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Romania, the USSR and Czechoslovakia) and entered into force on November 9, 1992.

In 1999, at the OSCE summit in Istanbul, an updated (adapted) version of DOVS was signed taking into account new conditions (dissolution of the ATS and the expansion of NATO).
