KIEV, March 26. /TASS/. Ukraine's top prosecutor has withdrawn from the coordination council of the CIS general prosecutors, his press service said on Thursday.
The press service explained the decision with "the absence of real results and formal approach to the organisation of the Coordination Council's work."
In November 2014, the Ukrainian cabinet abolished the position of the country's envoy for cooperation with Russia, the CIS, Eurasian Economic Community and other regional associations.
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavel Klimkin said his country would not pay the CIS membership fees but would not quit the post-Soviet organisation.
"We have purely practical interests," Klimkin said. "We will not pay $2 million to anyone. The Commonwealth [of Independent States]... does not help Ukraine promote its interests.".
