Draft bill registered in Verkhovna Rada

Ukrainian People’s Party Members of Parliament Yuri Kostenko and Yaroslav Dzhodzhyk have registered on Thursday in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine the draft Bill of Ukraine “On Denunciation of the Treaty on Creation of the Commonwealth of Independent States” (the draft # 3056).

UNIAN was informed about it at the press-service of the Ukrainian People’s Party.

The draft bill proposes to denunciate the Treaty on creating the Commonwealth of Independent States, signed by Ukraine on December 8 of 1991, and ratified on December 10 of 1991. In line with the draft bill, the Cabinet of Ministers will be commissioned to inform other CIS member countries about Ukraine’s quitting this organization, and to propose CIS to dissolve itself because its further existence is inefficient and it does not justify the purpose of its creation.
