Ukraine's Foreign Ministry denies the chances of losing the visa-free regime with the EU. Andriy Zayats, the Ministry's State Secretary said so in an interview with Apostrof outlet.
"Working groups are conducting the monitoring all the time. And the latest available report is a positive one. This is why I'd like to warn people from the panic, which may be observed in the Internet from time to time, as they claim "it's over", "the EU will cancel visa-free regime". We don't see such a threat", Zayats said.
According to him, the EU has certain recommendations for the Ukrainian side, but they concern other governmental bodies of Ukraine, not the Foreign Ministry.
As is known, in May 2017, the European Council decided to cancel visas for short-term trips (90 days over the period of 180 days) for Ukrainian citizens, if they visit any of 30 EU countries and the Schenghen area (except for the UK and Republic of Ireland). The visa-free regime started working on June 11, 2017.
