The Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction will not support a draft resolution of the Verkhovna Rada on appeal to the Cabinet of Ministers regarding termination of the intergovernmental agreement on visa-free travel of Ukrainians to Russia.

MP from the Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction Oleksiy Honcharenko said this to journalists on the sidelines of the Parliament, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

According to Honcharenko, firstly it is necessary to think about the Ukrainian citizens but not about public relations campaign, that’s why the faction has decided not to support the introduction of a visa regime with Russia.

He also stressed the need to take into account the government's position on this issue. In particular, he said that the foreign minister’s position was "that it is wrong to do and we are not prepared."
