MOSCOW, June 25. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday submitted for ratification by the State Duma a treaty on Kyrgyzstan’s accession to the Treaty on the Eurasian Economic Union, according to the database of the lower house of parliament.

Russia’s lower house also plans to ratify a protocol on amending the Treaty on the EAEU and separate international agreements linked to Kyrgyzstan’s accession and a range of other respective documents.

The treaty consists of several parts - the main one confirming the republic’s joining the economic union and naming the main terms and the procedure for the document to enter into force - and three protocols for the treaty, which were signed in early May in Moscow.

Kyrgyzstan will be able to open its borders with other EAEU member-states only after the parliaments of the countries ratify the treaty.

Kyrgyz authorities decided to join the Moscow-led Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan in the spring of 2011. Six months later, the former Soviet republic filed an official request. A treaty on the republic’s accession to the Customs Union and the newly-formalised Eurasian Economic Union was signed in December.

The Eurasian Economic Union, which envisages free movement of goods, services, capital and labour, comprises Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia. Membership is open to other states assessed as sharing the assembly's aims and principles, its founders say.
