As we reported earlier, Ukraine's partners from the European Union assured that nothing threatened the visa-free regime, and that Ukrainian citizens would again be able to travel to EU countries as soon as the epidemic situation allowed.

"We welcomed the continued successful implementation of the visa-free regime for the citizens of Ukraine. We underlined the importance of continuing to fulfill the visa liberalization benchmarks and accelerating related reform efforts. We looked forward to the resumption of the normal travel opportunities for our citizens, once epidemiological conditions allow," reads the message.
