The information on switching the date for voting on EU-Ukraine visa free regime showed up on the news due to a mistake. Maud Noyon, press officer of the European Parliament, said this on Thursday as quoted by Kyivpost.
‘The date was only approximate, and it will be corrected. The exact date has not yet been agreed,’ Noyon said.
Ukraine’s ambassador in Finland Andriy Olefirov also confirmed that the mistake occurred. ‘The European Parliament and the European Council have clearly specified in their joint statement that the visa-free regime takes effect simultaneously with the document about the visa-free regime suspension. So I guess it was a mistake, or some misunderstanding between EU authoritative bodies,’ Olefirov said in the exclusive commentary for 112 Ukraine TV channel.
