Today, On 11 May 2017, the Council of the European Union adopted a legislative proposal to abolish short-stay visas for citizens of Ukraine – Ukrainians gained the right to freely visit the Schengen area. Just a formality is left – the signing ceremony on May 17, 2017.
I congratulate all of us on this momentous event, in which the European Party of Ukraine was also involved. Since its establishment, we have declared the European integration of Ukraine. We consistently pursue our policy only in this way. And implementation of a visa-free regime is the first and crucial step in this process.
The full membership in the EU will be our next great achievement.
Glory to Ukraine!
Leader of the European Party of Ukraine
