Zelensky will be invited to attend CIS Summit in Ashgabat

President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky will be invited to attend the upcoming Ashgabat CIS Summit in October. The Izvestia newspaper has reported this with reference to Chairman of the CIS Executive Committee Sergey Lebedev.

According to him, the CIS Executive Committee has received no official documents from Ukraine concerning its withdrawal from the CIS, therefore allegedly, the country is legally part of the organization.

Ukraine has withdrawn from a number of CIS treaties and agreements. The country had also refused to attend the CIS Council of Foreign Ministers in Moscow on April 5, 2019 and the CIS Council of Heads of Government in Ashgabat on May 31.

The CIS Summit is to take place in Ashgabat on October 11.
