The Chairman of the Board of Fund “Maidan foreign Affairs” Bohdan Yaremenko said that people on Euromaidan not a visa-free regime with the EU.

“Let’s be honest: we went to the Maidan, and we had no idea bizwise. Yes, there was the idea of European integration, which we, Ukrainians, are perceived not as some criteria and standards, and “(Want) to live better.” And when people think that we are poorer, it means we are moving in the opposite direction from integration,” he said on a talk show, “the Right to Vlad”.

According to Yaremenko, a visa-free regime was an important, when the government decided that it was the only thing she can give to the citizens of Ukraine to show that it works.

“The government has created a problem that doesn’t exist, overstated expectations and made it absolutely manipulative, to divert attention from the fact that can not provide better living conditions”, – he said.

Ukraine has fulfilled all the requirements of the action Plan on visa liberalization – at least it showed the European Commission and EU ambassadors. However, the procedure began to falter before the last two bodies that must agree on the decision. It is the European Parliament and the EU Council.
