President Poroshenko hails EU ambassadors' decision on visa-free regime for Ukraine

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has said that the decision by European Union ambassadors to grant visa-free regime for Ukrainians has opened the doors to Europe. 

President Poroshenko stated this in the course of events held to commemorate the Chornobyl disaster, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

“The Committee of Permanent Representatives in the European Union has just approved a historic decision to grant visa-free regime and open the doors to Europe for Ukraine,” Petro Poroshenko said and congratulated Ukrainians on this historic decision.

President Poroshenko reminded that the only thing left is to approve the decision of the Council of the European Union at the level of ministers regarding visa-free regime to complete this process.

As reported, on Wednesday, the Committee of Permanent Representatives in the European Union (COREPER) approved the draft legislative act on including Ukraine in the list of the third countries whose nationals should not be in possession of visas when crossing the borders of the EU Member States.
