Ukraine is not member of CIS - Foreign Minister
Ukraine will analyze the expediency of its participation in CIS projects.
Foreign Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Ohryzko claimed this in the course of an on-line conference at Glavred web site.
“We will once again analyze the expediency of taking part in these or that CIS projects, because, the very name of it reads – the Commonwealth of Independent States. If it is a kind of friendship, there is a question whether it is a friendship or merely a cover”, he said.
The Minister recalled that Ukraine is not member of CIS.
“Ukraine does not recognize the legal personality of this organization, we are not members of the CIS Economic Court, we did not ratify the CIS Statute, thus, we cannot be considered a member of this organization from international legal point of view. Ukraine is a country-participant, but not a member country”, he said.
