Polish Senate Marshal supports simplification of visa regime between EU and Ukraine

At the Parliamentary Assembly of Poland, Lithuania and Ukraine, Bogdan Borusewicz, the Marshal of the Polish Senate, said that the issue of simplifying the visa regime between the EU and Ukraine should be resolved as soon as possible.

According to Borusewicz, the issue of simplifying the visa regime between the EU and Ukraine should be resolved as soon as possible, Joinfo.ua reports referring to Polskie Radio.

"I support abolition of visas for Ukrainians," said Borusewicz.

"Ukraine is a very important state both for Poland and for Lithuania. It is an important state for entire Europe. Poland and Ukraine are neighboring countries, and we can not indifferently watch what is going on with our neighbor," the Polish politician said.

He noted that Poland supported Ukraine but Ukraine needed to "go ahead" faster. In this context, the Marshal of the Senate mentioned the reform of prosecutor's office, justice, administrative reform and the fight against corruption.

In turn, Volodymyr Groysman, the spokesman for the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, recalled that Russia did not comply with the Minsk agreements and regular war was ongoing in the east of Ukraine. Groysman said that Ukrainians were waiting for a clear signal from EU membership, that may be presented by the abolition of visa regime between Ukraine and the EU.

It should be recalled that a source at the summit of the Eastern Partnership noted that the introduction of the visa-free regime for the citizens of Ukraine would be possible by the end of the next year.
