Tartu Peace Treaty 100

On 2 February 2020, we will mark 100 years since the signing of the Tartu Peace Treaty between the Republic of Estonia and Soviet Russia.

The treaty ended the Estonian War of Independence that had lasted for nearly a year and a half, and was one of the first major achievements in the field of international relations for the young Estonian state. The treaty established Estonia’s eastern border, and Soviet Russia recognized the independence of the Republic of Estonia in perpetuity. The instruments of ratification of the treaty were exchanged in Moscow on 30 March 1920 and the treaty entered into force.
