The idea to stage the Games of the CIS countries was proposed by the Russian Federation. The proposal was supported during the meeting of the Council of CIS State Leaders in Dushanbe on 28 September 2018. The First Games of the CIS countries will be held under the auspices of celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Tatar Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic (TASSR).
