Relevant contents

Ukraine strictly adheres to the decisions taken by the UN Security Council, Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe and Wassenaar Arrangement.

The UNSC resolutions which impose sanctions regimes are guidelines for the adoption of the relevant legislation and regulations in Ukraine and are strictly implemented by the national authorities.

In decision-making process we also take into account the provisions of a Moratorium by the Economic Community of West African States on import, export and manufacture of light weapons as well as the political principles of the European Union Code of Conduct on Conventional Arms Exports.

Ukraine recognizes important role of both the UN Program of Action and the OSCE SALW Document for their comprehensive approach to the issue of international arms transfers. Particular importance is attached to the OSCE Document, where the State-Parties, having agreed on common export criteria such as respect for human rights, avoidance of armed conflict, and compliance with international agreements, established a detailed set of principles governing the procedures and documentation for the import, export and transit of small arms and light weapons.
