MOSCOW, June 10. /TASS/. The majority of people in five member countries of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) support the organization, Chief of Staff of Presidential Administration Sergey Ivanov told the World Congress of Russian Press on Wednesday.

"I am absolutely convinced that the majority of people in our ‘quintet’, in the Eurasian Economic Union, support it," Ivanov said. The official added that trade turnover between EAEU member countries has grown by $20 billion over the last year. He named free movement of goods as another benefit.

However, it can be assumed that not all residents of the five countries (Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan) favor EAEU, Ivanov noted. "Even not everyone in the European Union likes the European Union. And I can assume that there is something to dislike - bureaucracy there is astounding," he added, noting that the UK government has decided to conduct a referendum on possible exit from EU. "A whole country is talking about it already," Ivanov said.

The EEU is an international integration economic union, which was established on January 1, 2015. It comprises Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia. Kyrgyzstan is expected to join the union later this year.
