List of legislation governing cooperatives in Former Soviet Union countries

Photo: ©FAO/Johan Spanner

The table List of legislative acts regulating issues of cooperation in the countries of the former Soviet Union shows extracts from three categories of legislation: the Civil Code, special laws governing the activities of cooperatives and the Tax Code for each country (available in Russian only).

The authors have tried to include the most recent cooperative legislation on this site. However, legislation is constantly being updated; policies change and new laws are adopted. Therefore, we kindly ask you to send to the FAO officer your recommendations, corrections, and comments on the subject of cooperation in the post-Soviet countries.
