The Treaty on Open Skies, signed in 1992, established a regime of unarmed aerial observation flights over the territories of its 34 member-states to promote openness and transparency of military activities.

The treaty came into force on January 1, 2002. Its concept was re-introduced by President George H.W. Bush in 1989, following an original proposal by President Eisenhower in 1955.

Russia ratified the Treaty on Open Skies on May 26, 2001.
