“If the intergovernmental Council will meet in April, we are preparing for this event coordinated by many members of the Eurasian Union, the document on the establishment of the new Eurasian POPPY. It is in high degree of readiness, worked out at the expert level, I am in contact with my fellow Ministers, and to complete the domestic procedures in each of the countries-participants,” he said.

Sokolov reminded that the document is open: it can be signed by between five and among fewer States. “Then it can join, as we have agreed, as members of the Eurasian Union and other States, if deemed these terms acceptable,” he said.
