The leaders of almost all parliamentary factions signed a draft statement to the European Parliament and the Council of the EU on the issue of granting Ukraine visa-free regime without delay. About this on his page in Facebook wrote the first Deputy speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Iryna Gerashchenko.
«Emotional start apparently emotional weeks. And at the conciliatory Council in Parliament, and at the round table with the participation of the EU Ambassador in Ukraine Mr. Mingarelli focused on the issue of granting Ukraine visa-free regime. Today the leaders of almost all parliamentary fractions on the initiative of the BP ( A. Parubiya, O. Siroid) signed the draft statement to the European Parliament and the EU Council (on Tuesday, November 15, will be registered and hopefully voted) on granting Ukraine visa-free without delay», — she wrote.
«Ukraine has fulfilled all 144 criteria of the action plan for visa liberalization. During this time we had a heavy additional circumstances — war, but we have fulfilled all criteria. And we expect the EU to fulfil their part of obligations under bezveze. We understand the new challenges facing the EU, in particular, the migration crisis, and the efforts of the EU to enter specmagnit as part of securing its borders. But we are against the bindings start bezveze to spectehnika. This is a double standard, because other countries with bezviz with the EU, enjoy now all the benefits, they are not closed bezviz before the start of spectehnika. We believe that these are parallel processes — the provision of Ukraine bezveza and start spectehnika», — said Gerashchenko.
We will remind, the Ukrainian foreign Ministry earlier said that further delaying the EU decision on visa-free regime for citizens of Ukraine is unacceptable.
As reported, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko expects that the European Parliament approves visa-free regime for Ukraine in November.
