EU Promises Ukraine Visa-Free Regime

Ukraine | November 25, 2016, Friday // 10:19|  views


The European Union has promised Ukraine a visa-free regime by December and a ratification of the Agreement for association and free-trade.

At the summit in Brussels, President Poroshenko assured that he is continuing the reforms for combating corruption and guaranteed the secure transit of Russian gas through Ukrainian territory to Europe.

“This is the first summit where no additional requests were made to Ukraine because we have fulfilled all our commitments,” stated Poroshenko and added:

“Now, we insist that our European partners fulfill theirs.”

Poroshenko reminded that, 3 years ago, the main demand of the Euromaidan in Kiev was the signing of the Association Agreement with the EU. It, however, did not enter into force due to the referendum in Holland which prevented the government from legalising the treaty.
