Czech Republic supports introducing visa-free regime for Ukraine

The Czech Republic supports a European Commission’s initiative to cancel visas for Ukrainians, Radio Praha reports.

“This poses no threat to the Czech Republic,” Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka said.

Czech Foreign Ministers Lubomir Zaoralek, in turn, stressed that he also supports such a step.

“We support aspirations of the countries such as Georgia, Ukraine, or Turkey to visa liberalization,” he said.

At the same time, Zaoralek recalled that such countries should fully implement all the needed requirements.

Press secretary of the Union of Industry and Transport of the Czech Republic, Milan Mostyn also commented on the situation and said that this would open doors for Ukrainian workers, as the local industry had a huge demand for them.

As it is reported, by the end of January, the number of legally employed Ukrainians in the Czech Republic totaled 106,000. At present, Ukrainians are the largest category of migrants in the Czech Republic and make 23% of the general number.
