The EU delegation in Ukraine can not give a specific date of approval bezveza for Ukraine, but I hope that it will happen in the next few months.

This was stated by the head of mission, Ambassador Hugues Mingarelli in an interview with Radio Liberty.

«I can’t tell you the exact date, but I hope that over the next few months will be a formal solution which will allow Ukrainians short-term stay in the European Union without visas. The Ukrainian people deserve, because Ukraine has fulfilled all obligations, all conditions, laid down by the EU,» he said.

According to the Ambassador, the decision in favor of simplification of visa regime for Georgia, adopted by the EU on the eve is proof that the EU is «moving in the right direction in the issue of simplification of visa regime for Georgia and Ukraine.»

As noted Mingarelli, decision on Georgia, adopted a little earlier because between Georgia and the EU has started a process of discussion and implementation bizwise.

«There’s no political motive, I assure you. In fact, there are no problems — everyone agrees that Ukraine had fulfilled all that was, and the Ukrainians have to travel for short term to the EU without visas,» he added.

In December last year the European Union agreed on an updated mechanism for the termination of visa-free regimes, which depended on progress in the implementation of bezveza for Ukraine and Georgia.

As explained by Mingarelli, Ukraine now must wait for formal approval of this mechanism, followed by «Trialogue» — consultations between the EU Council, the European Parliament and the European Commission, is to finalize the visa liberalization for Ukraine.

Previously, the Rapporteur of the EP on the visa-free regime Maria Gabriel stated that he had done everything to ensure that inter-institutional dialogue in the EU on visa-free for Ukraine took place in February, not in April.
