As previously reported, at the summit Ukraine – EU which will take place on 24 November in Brussels, will discuss the liberalization of the visa regime with Ukraine and the implementation of the Minsk agreements.

On 26 September the European Parliament’s Committee on civil liberties supported granting Ukraine a visa-free regime. Now a word for deputies of the European Parliament.

On 18 November, during a telephone conversation with Petro Poroshenko, the President of the European Council Donald Tusk expressed hopethat the countries – members of EU will soon agree on a mechanism to suspend visa-free regimes that will pave the way for the final abolition of visas for Ukrainians.
