Ukraine is announcing its withdrawal from the next agreement within the framework of the CIS in order to once again show its “fierce struggle” with Russia and the countries that work together with the Russian Federation at the organization’s site. Viktor Vodolatsky, First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on CIS Affairs, Eurasian Integration and Relations with Compatriots, told Izvestia on Wednesday, April 21, about this.
He recalled that after the coup d’etat in 2014 and the coming to power of the team of Petro Poroshenko, Ukraine lost contacts with all CIS bodies, after which Kiev decided to break off all relations in areas that, among other things, had an indefinite character.
“For many years, Ukraine has not taken part in any way. [в деятельности СНГ]… As a result, the Ukrainian economy <...> suffers billions of dollars in losses. Today Ukraine can get some long-standing agreements out of chests and say that it is tearing or terminating them, only in order to once again show in the information field their fierce struggle with Russia and with those countries that are with us work on the platform of the CIS and the EAEU, ”the deputy said.
According to Vodolatsky, everyone has long forgotten that Ukraine was once in the CIS system, Russia does not lose anything from this. He stressed that in this regard, only Ukraine bears great losses, which is manifested in the growth of unemployment, stagnation of the country’s economy, and the deficit of the federal and regional budgets.
Earlier that day, it became known that the Ukrainian government approved a bill that provides for the country’s withdrawal from the CIS agreement on the creation of an interstate reserve of biological products and other animal protection products.
It was noted that the country’s participation in the agreement does not make sense, since Ukraine has not used the drugs indicated in the list over the past ten years.
The agreement was signed in 1996, when it was decided to create an interstate reserve of biological products and other animal protection products in the CIS through equity participation.
On March 3, the deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Vasily Mokan said that Ukraine had withdrawn from the agreement within the framework of the CIS on cooperation in the field of cellular communications.
On February 23, it was reported about Ukraine’s withdrawal from the agreements on civil aviation and the use of airspace concluded within the CIS.
