The maritime boundary between Georgia and Turkey was established as part of a bilateral agreement that was reached in 1978 when Georgia was still part of the former Soviet Union. In 1991, when the Soviet Union dissolved, the former Soviet states of Russia, Georgia, and Ukraine all agreed to honor the established maritime boundary. However, the 1978 Agreement did not determine the precise locations where lateral boundaries between the former Soviet states would intersect this previously established boundary line.
