Ukraine withdraws from three agreements that were in force within the CIS

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted laws on Ukraine's withdrawal from three agreements that were in force within the framework of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). This was reported by the press service of the department.

Ukraine withdrew from the agreements on cooperation in the development and use of cellular mobile communication systems among the CIS member countries, on the creation of an interstate reserve of biological products and other animal protection products in the CIS member countries and from the protocol on amending the agreement on courier communications, which concerned the right for the storage and use of service weapons.

Also, the deputies of the Verkhovna Rada supported the draft law "On withdrawing from the agreement on the support and development of small business in the CIS member states."

In May 2018, former President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko signed a decree on the recall of Ukrainian representatives from all the statutory bodies of the CIS. Already at the end of August of the same year, Ukraine closed its representative office in the CIS.
