"The EP has very unanimous support for granting a visa-free regime to Ukraine, so there is no need to expect any problems. This decision will be positive.The next will be the EU Council, which also earlier decided that Ukraine should receive a visa-free regime. It is just necessary to go through some formal procedures, like tomorrow's vote of the EP on civil liberties, justice and internal affairs," he reported.

As the message says, this day they will be voting for Ukraine’s entering to the list of countries exempted from visa requirements. Mariya Gabriel will be the speaker, voting will take place regarding the text which was earlier agreed on during inter-agency negotiations.
