The foreign ministers of the CIS countries have expressed hopes that Ukraine will stay a member of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Sergei Lebedev, chairman of the CIS Executive Committee, told a press conference in Moscow on Friday.

“Everyone expressed hopes that Ukraine will stay a member of the CIS despite some statements that are now made in Kyiv because it is in line with the interests of the people of Ukraine, the interests of the state of Ukraine [which] has close economic, humanitarian, family, and human ties with the other CIS countries,” Lebedev said.

“The members of the Council of Foreign Ministers have spoken in favor of the prompt stabilization of the situation in Ukraine and continuing multi-party dialogue to promote the solution of the problems faced by Ukraine in the past year,” he said.
