Paruby hopes for a final vote in the European Parliament on bezveza in early October

Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Andriy Parubiy expects a final vote in the European Parliament to grant visa-free regime in the beginning of October. He said this on his page in Facebook.

“The European Parliament’s Committee on civil liberties, justice and home Affairs (LIBE) endorsed the report on granting Ukraine visa-free regime. I welcome this decision of our European partners and thank them for their consistent support of Ukraine”, – said Parubiy.

He added: “During my last meeting with European Parliament President Martin Schulz, he said that assuming a positive decision of the relevant Committee final vote on granting bezveza will take place during the next session of the European Parliament in early October. Therefore, I believe that after a week MEPs will support this important and dear to every Ukrainian question”.

Parubiy expressed his belief that after the visa-free regime with the EU every Ukrainian will feel a full citizen of the free world.

“The decision of the Committee of the European Parliament shows that Ukraine have decently passed the examination of the reforms towards European integration”, – said the speaker.

We will remind, the European Parliament’s Committee on civil liberties and home Affairs (LIBE) voted for entering of Ukraine to the list of countries with which the EU introduces visa-free regime.

Earlier, the European Commissioner for European neighbourhood policy Johannes Hahn said that the issue of granting Ukraine visa-free regime with the EU is in the final stage.

In turn, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that no doubt that in the autumn the European Union will take a decision about granting Ukraine visa-free regime. The same rhetoric was made by the Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Hroisman and foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin.
