Ambassadors of EU member countries have approved the visa free regime for Ukrainian citizens. Rikard Jozwiak, the correspondent for Radio Liberty, tweeted that on April 26.

By spring 2017, Ukraine finally fulfilled all EU requirements for the abolition of visa regime. That was confirmed by European officials of various levels. It took almost a year of reforms and submitting respective amendments in the Ukrainian law before this historical decision.

Previously, in late 2013, Euromaidan activists held mass rallies, demanding, in particular, better European future for Ukraine, which included signature of EU-Ukraine Association Agreement and, in certain perspective, a EU-Ukraine visa free regime. As the 2014 Revolution of Dignity in Ukraine proved victorious and the pro-Russian government was overthrown, the newly-shaped Ukrainian authority managed to get back on track with the EU. Despite the ongoing Russian aggression in Crimea and Donbas, common Ukrainian citizens and the current government have been working hard to obtain the visa free regime.
