Ambassador Deshchytsia on association: Ukraine lacks ‘light at the end of tunnel’

Europe should complete the ratification process of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement which will facilitate the development of business between the two sides.

Ambassador of Ukraine to Poland Andriy Deshchytsia said this during the international conference "Ukraine from Past to Future" in Warsaw, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"In global terms, the signing of the Association Agreement and Free Trade Area helps move towards the European market. However, we lack light at the tunnel of this path. We hope that the EU will switch the light on at the end of the tunnel and the agreement will be finally ratified," Deshchytsia said.

When asked about the possibility of lifting the EU visa requirements for Ukrainian citizens in the short term, the Ambassador stressed that it depended solely on the European Commission and that decision would be "political."
