Estonian Minister proposes to cancel visa-free travel for Ukrainians
08:48, 12 September 2019
The Minister of the Interior of Estonia, the chairman of the Conservative People’s Party Mart Helme, ordered to find out whether visa-free regime can be canceled for Ukrainian citizens who come to Estonia. It is reported by ERR.

According to Helme, he intends to present the relevant legislative initiatives to parliament this fall.

It is noted that the EKRE leaders had previously suggested that as soon as Ukraine receives a visa-free regime with the EU, it will become a Trojan horse.

“The Trojan horse, in particular, for Russia, because those who come here are not so much Ukrainians as Russians from eastern Ukraine, Russified Ukrainians. This migration pressure from the east is very strong on us, and it continues to increase,” Helme stressed.

The minister added that the migration cannot be completely abolished, but Estonia should be able to decide who to allow to visit the country, in what quantity, for how long and on what conditions.

“It is impossible and not in the interests of Estonia to abolish the right of a visa-free regime for Ukrainian citizens,” said Foreign Minister Urmas Reinsalu.

According to him, unilateral cancellation of a short-term visa-free regime for citizens of Ukraine by Estonia is unreasonable and legally impossible.

Earlier it was reported that Estonia does not recognize the elections held in the annexed Crimea and Sevastopol.
