First Vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Irina Gerashchenko hopes that in early June, the Ukrainians will get visa-free regime with the countries of the European Union. She said this during a briefing.
Gerashchenko noted that “today is an extremely important vote held in the European Parliament, which, in fact, removes all the barriers to granting a visa-free regime to Ukraine.”
“Now we have at the end of April already bureaucratic procedures is a vote of EU ambassadors. Then the formal decision of the Council of the EU,” she said.
The MP added: “it is a very realistic period of time – at the beginning of June the Ukrainians will get visa-free regime with the countries of the European Union”.
At the same time the Deputy noted that without a visa to the EU can only go by those Ukrainians who have a new biometric passport.
We will remind, on 6 April 2017, the European Parliament voted for granting the visa-free regime with the EU for Ukrainian citizens.
After the vote in the European Parliament the Ukrainian “bezviz” must approve the Council of the EU.
