EU/Russland — Agreement on the protection of classified information

Agree­ment between the Gov­ern­ment of the Russ­ian Fed­er­a­tion and the Euro­pean Union on the pro­tec­tion of clas­si­fied infor­ma­tion signed 1 June 2010 in Ros­tov-on-Don, Rus­sia

On 1 June, in the mar­gins of the EU-Rus­sia sum­mit, the High Rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Union for For­eign Affairs and Secu­ri­ty Pol­i­cy signed an Agree­ment with the Russ­ian Fed­er­a­tion on the pro­tec­tion of clas­si­fied infor­ma­tion. This Agree­ment rep­re­sents a sig­nif­i­cant step for­ward in EU-Russ­ian rela­tions and is a mea­sure of the lev­el of con­fi­dence in fur­ther devel­op­ing coop­er­a­tion in future.

The Agree­ment estab­lish­es the con­di­tions to ensure appro­pri­ate pro­tec­tion of any clas­si­fied infor­ma­tion exchanged between the EU and the Russ­ian Fed­er­a­tion in all and any areas of coop­er­a­tion. It does not cre­ate any oblig­a­tion to exchange infor­ma­tion but will great­ly facil­i­tate coop­er­a­tion, for exam­ple, in the area of cri­sis man­age­ment oper­a­tions and in projects which require access to clas­si­fied mate­r­i­al.

On the Russ­ian side the Agree­ment was signed by Mr Sergey Smirnov, First Deputy Direc­tor of the Fed­er­al Secu­ri­ty Ser­vice (FSB) of the Russ­ian Fed­er­a­tion
