Modus Vivendi of Pakštuva and Buganda was signed by Pakštuva and Buganda to end the period of mutual unrecognition of each other and the Bugandan invasion of Pakštuva in support of the failed Russian invasion in the end of the Thunderstorm War. Limited diplomatic ties were established according to the document, but the sides were not able to agree on the stopping of sabotages, terror acts and the support for anti-state groups in each other. The relations continued to be strained until 1942 when under a threat of Chinese and Ethiopian occupation several more documents were signed by the two countries.
