Ukraine plans to withdraw from some agreements within the CIS, which do not bare a strategic importance for the country, according to the director of the Political Department of the Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Alexei Makeev on the air of ICTV channel.
“Now our main focus is to withdraw from the agreements that are not needed, with dignity and minimal losses for the citizens of Ukraine, and probably to keep the mechanisms that are necessary, for example, pension,” he said.
Makeev said that only those agreements which are "working for Ukraine" will remain.
“It is about not to paying dues, and not participating in the development of decisions irrelevant to the interests of Ukraine and its citizens. It is about upholding only those agreements that are working for Ukraine,” Makeev explained.
