Also, the Committee heard a report from a member of the Committee on civil liberties, justice and home Affairs of the European Parliament Michael Boni. According to him, Ukraine has not only fulfilled all the requirements of the EU to provide visa-free regime, but “exceeded expectations”.

Now Ukraine still has to pass only three treatments to get bezviz with the EU. The next step will be to consider the abolition of visas for Ukrainians in the European Parliament on 5 April.

After that the issue will re-examine the representatives of the member countries of the EU (COREPER) and adopt the Council of Europe.

As reported Корреспондент.netUkraine will receive a visa-free regime with the EU on 12 June. By this time the decision will be published in the official journal of the European Council. It will enter into force 20 days after publication.
