Kyiv: Ukraine will not withdraw from the CIS treaties on transit, diplomas and employment

Ukraine will not denounce agreements within the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) in the fields of transit, recognition of diplomas and employment, the representative of the President in the Verkhovna Rada, Iryna Lutsenko reported.

"The Commander-in-Chief urges the government to carry out an inventory of all multilateral treaties between the members of the CIS to denounce separate treaties, leaving only those that are pragmatically needed by Ukraine, such as the recognition of diplomas, employment and the treaty on transit,” the Petro Poroshenko Bloc website quoted Lutsenko as saying.

On April 12, President Petro Poroshenko stated that Ukraine would terminate its participation in the statutory bodies of the Commonwealth of Independent States and at the same time would verify the compliance of the entire treaty and legal base adopted within the CIS with Ukraine’s national interests.
