This paper considers Finnish-Soviet environmental cooperation. It is shown that efficient cooperation on reducing sulphur emissions may entail financial transfers from Finland to the Soviet Union because marginal abatement costs are much lower there. Soviet emissions should be drastically reduced in Kola peninsula and Estonia. The analysis is based on a sulphur transportation model, on estimated regional abatement cost functions and on the 'revealed-preference' approach in estimating the damage costs from pollution.
