EU to force visa liberalization for Ukraine - MEPs

The European Parliament endorsed the recommendation to cancel visa requirements for Ukrainian citizens for short term travels within the Schengen area as soon as possible, according to the Twitter account of Parliament Deputy Jacek Sariusz-Wolski, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to UA Today.

It was him who presented the report in the Committee on Foreign Affairs, calling his colleagues to support Ukraine on its way to the free and democratic European future.

Earlier the European Parliament postponed the visa liberalization for Ukraine, Georgia, and Kosovo until September 2016.

It should be recalled that this May the European Parliament has passed a new visa directive on EU entry and residence that makes it easier and more attractive for people from third countries to study or do research at EU universities.
