MINSK : Sharing the Poverty

February 11, 1992

Leaders of the Commonwealth of Independent States, which shows signs of breaking up even before it is fully formed, meet Friday in the capital of Belarus to try and iron out differences on two troublesome problems.

Military issues are also particularly sensitive, with both Russia and Ukraine wanting to control the former Soviet Black Sea Fleet.
