In an exclusive interview for 112 TV channel, conducted by Olena Abramovych, ESI’s General Secretary Alexandra Stiglmayer stated that a complicated situation with visa-free regime with Ukraine has several reasons.

In particular, EU is more careful with cancelling visas for third countries due to a bad experience of visa free Balkan states. EU have already faced abuse in this sphere, so they are not in a hurry to provide visa free regime for Ukraine.
