At the Istanbul Summit in 1999, where the Adaptation Agreement was concluded, Russia undertook the so-called Istanbul Commitments to remove its troops from both the Republic of Georgia and the "breakaway" province of Transdniestra in Moldova.
The disconcerting possibility that Soviet-made Alazan rockets may have been modified in Transdniestra to carry radioactive materials was first suggested in 2001, when the Institute for Policy Studies in Chisinau, Moldova, obtained documents allegedly written by a civil defence commander in Transdniestria, indicating his concern about radiation given off by weapons in storage in Transdniestria.
Disputed territories include Transdniestra, the mainly Russian-populated breakaway region of Moldova; Nagorno Karabakh, the mostly ethnic Armenian province of Azerbaijan; and Abkhazia, whose sovereignty Georgia and Russia contest.
