I honestly don't know, but I'd be cautious about believing this source for the following reasons.Might not be proof of being a scientologist but this statement of meeting David Miscavige is revealing. Is this also unsubstantiated?As early as June 2009, articles can be found saying:
It is noteworthy that, during his frequent trips to America, Yatsenyuk invariably meets in an informal setting with Mr. David Miscavige, who is in the top leadership of the "Church of Scientology."

Now, while the following Wikipedia entry is not for the Institute of CIS Countries, but is instead for the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) itself, it might be instructive:
The Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS; Russian: Содружество Независимых Государств, СНГ, tr. Sodruzhestvo Nezavisimykh Gosudarstv, SNG) (also called the Russian Commonwealth)[SUP][/SUP] is a regional organization whose participating countries are former Soviet Republics, formed during the breakupof the Soviet Union.
The CIS is a loose association of states. Although the CIS has few supranational powers, it is aimed at being more than a purely symbolic organization, nominally possessing coordinating powers in the realm of trade, finance, lawmaking, and security. It has also promoted cooperation on cross-border crime prevention. Some of the members of the CIS have established the Eurasian Economic Community with the aim of creating a fully fledged common market.
As recall, the Opposition leader, former candidate, being attacked as a Scientologist and/or someone who has met with Miscavige is oriented toward Europe, the European Union and the West generally, and against Russia and the CIS. Thus, it appears that Russia, the CIS and I suspect the "Institute of CIS countries" that published the article have a real incentive to attack her.
