MINSK, March 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s Ambassador to the CIS Ivan Bunechko has resigned from the position of the Commonwealth of Independent States’ head of permanent representatives’ council.
Earlier on the day, Ukraine announced suspending its chairing role at the CIS.
The note, which Ukraine addressed to the CIS office in Minsk, reads “the Ukrainian side is deeply sorry that the CIS, instead of implementing its tasks to establish cooperation and settlement of conflict situations in the post-Soviet space, has turned into an instrument to realize interests of its certain members.”
The CIS’s executive secretary Sergei Lebedev explained to reporters that the CIS chairing should not be transferred to one of the co-chairs - presently Belarus and Kazakhstan.
