Ambassadors of EU countries approved the beginning of the discussion of visa liberalization for Ukraine. Radio Svoboda correspondent in Brussels Rikard Jozwiak wrote this on Twitter.


"The Council believes that the entry into force of the liberalization of the visa regime for Ukraine should take place simultaneously with the entry into force of the new mechanism for the abolition of visa-free regime", reads the statement of the EU Council.

The negotiations with the European Parliament will be initiated on this basis.

"By giving a green light today, the Council has demonstrated its commitment to the visa-free regime for citizens of Ukraine, taking into account that all the requirements have been met. The reforms are the right way, and should be encouraged. I am also pleased that our solution can send a positive signal to the eve of the EU-Ukraine summit on November 24", said the Chairman of the Committee of permanent representatives, Peter S. Javorcik.

Earlier, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that Ukraine will receive a visa-free regime until November 24, during EU-Ukraine Summit in Brussels.
