In the future, the United States wants to destroy the CIS and organize “opposing states” in the post-Soviet space, Nurgaliyev said
The West is spending huge amounts of money on undermining the situation in the countries of the former USSR, and its ultimate goal— destroy the CIS, said in an interview with Rossiyskaya Gazeta; Deputy Secretary of the Security Council of Russia Rashid Nurgaliyev.
“The collapse of the CIS, the CSTO, the EAEU and the organization of opposing states in the post-Soviet space, turned like Ukraine into puppet and colonial countries, is Washington's long-term goal”,— he said.
According to Nurgaliev, “dozens of methods” are used to undermine the situation in the countries of the post-Soviet space, for the implementation of which the West spends “colossal funds”. One of these methods— it is support for non-governmental organizations whose work is aimed at “weakening the economic, cultural and economic interaction of the CIS countries,” he said.
The Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) includes Russia and Belarus, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. In 2009, Georgia withdrew from the CIS, and in 2019, Ukraine left its statutory bodies. However, it is still formally a member of some agreements within the framework of the Commonwealth.
It was proposed in May to discuss the positive and negative aspects of membership in the CIS in the Parliament of Moldova. According to the Speaker of the Parliament, Igor Grosu, this issue should be raised after the completion of the Russian special operation in Ukraine.
Commenting on this proposal, Moldovan President Maia Sandu said that the country should remain in the CIS as long as it meets its interests and allows it to receive benefits. “Now there are problems in relations with Russia. But there are other countries with which we have commercial relations. We need to be pragmatic,— she noted.
