Presidential Administration: EU ready to streamline visa liberalization for Ukraine

The European Union is ready to streamline procedures necessary for visa liberalization with Ukraine, informed Deputy Head of Presidential Administration Kostyantyn Yeliseyev.

Commenting on the information spread by mass media that the European Parliament will vote on visa liberalization with Ukraine in September, Yeliseyev called it not entirely correct. The official stated, that considering technical procedures, the European Parliament needs a couple of months in order to vote on such a decision, however, European partners are ready to streamline the process.

“The EU is ready to streamline all procedures to cancel visa obligations for Ukraine. The European Parliament has political will to do this”, – Yeliseyev stated.

On April 20, the European Commission proposed the European Parliament and the European Council to cancel visa obligations for Ukrainian citizens. President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko expects the EU will grant visa-free regime to Ukraine within a few months.
