MEP’s ask EU leadership to grant visa free regime to Ukraine and Georgia
A group of Members of the European Parliament, among them EP’s standing rapporteur on Ukraine Jacek SARYUSZ-WOLSKI (EPP, Poland), published an open letter to the leaders of the institutions of the European Union, requesting them to grant Ukraine and Georgia a visa-free regime.
“We are convinced that unconditional granting the visa free regime to Ukraine - as well as to Georgia, which has also done a considerable progress in the areas concerned - would reflect the genuine European Union's commitment to the Eastern Partnership which is all the more urgent given the enormous military, political, economic and propaganda pressure on these associated partners of the EU. Moreover, it would reinforce the determination of Ukraine -- as well as of Georgia - to continue on this path of reforms facilitating a positive democratic change in these countries,” reads the letter addressed to Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, Federica Mogherini, the EU’s High Representative/European Commission Vice-President and a few EU Commissioners.
