Name[edit]

New Union Treaty (Russian: новый союзный договор) is widely known, but rather an unoffical name. The offical name of the new union was to be the "Union of Sovereign States"(Russian: Союз Суверенных Государств), and the last draft of the treaty itself was offically known as (Russian: "Договор о Союзе суверенных государств"). --KPbIC 19:41, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

remark[edit]

In the article is written:

Six of the fifteen Soviet republics however did not participate in drafting of the treaty: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldavia, Georgia and Armenia, i.e. the non-Slav, non-Eastern Orthodox of the fifteen republics.

That's not correct, since central asian republics and Azerbaijan were also neither slavic nor orthodox. --Ljowa 22:38, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
