From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Community for Democracy and Rights of Nations (Russian: Сообщество за демократию и права народов) is an international organization uniting several states in the former Soviet Union which are not generally recognized.



The agreement about creating the commonwealth had been reached in 2001 at the foreign ministers meeting held in Stepanakert,[1] the capital of Nagorno-Karabakh.

The Community for Democracy and Human Rights was established June 14, 2006 in Sukhumi by the leaders of the partially recognized governments of Abkhazia, South Ossetia and Transnistria - Sergei Bagapsh, Eduard Kokoity and Igor Smirnov. Nagorno-Karabakh started to participate later.

On June 17, 2007, the four-state Community for Democracy and Peoples' Rights signed in Tiraspol - the capital of Transnistria - the joint Declaration on principles of peaceful and fair settlement of the Georgian-Abkhazian, Georgian-Ossetian, Azeri-Karabakh and Moldovan-Transnistrian conflicts. It calls for barring all types of pressure, such as military deployments, diplomatic isolation, economic blockades, or information wars during negotiations toward resolution of conflicts. It also calls for external guarantees to eventual political settlements of these conflicts.

On 27 September 2009 the members of the Community for Democracy and Peoples' Rights agreed to abolish the visa regimes for their citizens. The agreemeent will come into effect one month after its ratification by all three parliaments. It will last for five years, after which it will automatically be extended for another five-year term.[2]
