Transnational Issues

Disputes – International

The 1997 boundary delimitation treaty with Belarus remains un-ratified due to unresolved financial claims, stalling demarcation and reducing border security. On the other hand, the delimitation of land boundary with Russia is complete with preparations for demarcation underway. Another dispute is over the boundary between Russia and Ukraine through the Kerch Strait and Sea of Azov, remains unresolved despite a December 2003 framework agreement and ongoing expert-level discussions.

Moldova and Ukraine operate joint customs posts to monitor transit of people and commodities through Moldova's break-away Transnistria Region, which remains under OSCE supervision. The ICJ gave Ukraine until December 2006 to reply, and Romania until June 2007 to rejoin, in their dispute submitted in 2004 over Ukrainian-administered Zmiyinyy/Serpilor (Snake) Island and Black Sea maritime boundary. Romania opposes Ukraine's reopening of a navigation canal from the Danube border through Ukraine to the Black Sea.

Illicit Drugs

There is limited cultivation of cannabis and opium poppy in Ukraine, mostly for ex-USSR consumption, and some synthetic drug production for export to the West

Ukraine is used as trans-shipment point for opiates and other illicit drugs from Africa, Latin America, and Turkey to Europe and Russia. Ukraine has improved anti-money-laundering controls, resulting in its removal from the Financial Action Task Force's (FATF's) Noncooperative Countries and Territories List in February 2004 and the country's anti-money-laundering regime continues to be monitored by FATF.
