MOSCOW, March 06. /ITAR-TASS/. The Eurasian Economic Commission, a supranational governing body of the Customs Union between Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, does not find it necessary to take measures over Ukrainian crisis, Chairman of the Eurasian Economic Commission Board Viktor Khristenko said on Thursday.
“From my point of view, our measures - no panics, no especially arranged measures should be taken, as all measures should be taken inside Ukraine. All actions that should be taken are restoration of normal functioning of the state. That is all. From our point of view, no other measures should be recommended, advised and taken,” he told reporters.
The Eurasian Economic Commission is prepared to resume contacts with Ukraine, but there is no one to talk to there yet, Khristenko said.
He noted that memoranda on co-operation in trade, technical regulation and a special memorandum with Ukrainian government that defined format of Ukraine’s permanent participation in the commission were signed earlier. “I speak in the past tense not because everything stopped, but those events, that background that followed this co-operation make things absolutely vague over who are our partners today and with whom we will work. We have received an organizational vacuum to some degree,” Khristenko said.
Meanwhile, he said with hope that “restoration of normal life and legitimate relations already inside Ukraine will allow preserving already established co-operation with the Customs Union, the Eurasian Economic Commission or at least preserving this at the level it was before.
