The Latvian Foreign Ministry announced the suspension of the intergovernmental agreement on economic cooperation between Latvia and Russia and the agreement on the mutual facilitation of travel for residents of the border areas of the two countries.
In the list of suspended international treaties published in the Government Gazette Latvian Vestnesisalso appear agreements:
- “On the establishment of an intergovernmental commission in the fields of economic, scientific, technical, humanitarian and cultural cooperation”;
- “On the avoidance of double taxation and tax evasion in relation to taxes on profits and capital”;
- “On the social protection of military pensioners of the Russian Federation and members of their families living in the territory of Latvia”.
It is specified that the validity of all agreements, with the exception of documents on military pensioners and double taxation (their validity has been suspended since May 16), was suspended on August 1.
In May, Latvia announced the termination of the agreement on cooperation with Russia in the field of culture. Then, in the Ministry of Culture of the Republic, this was explained by the unwillingness to cooperate with the “Putin regime” until the complete withdrawal of Russian troops from the territory of Ukraine.
