WARSAW, September 25 (Itar-Tass) — The establishment of small border traffic between Russia’s westernmost Kaliningrad region and neighboring regions of Poland is a matter of weeks, Poland’s Prime Minister Donald Tusk said on Sunday.
According to the Polish prime minister, his country is ready to sign an agreement on visa-free travel for Kaliningrad region residents and residents of Poland’s Warmian-Masurian and Pomeranian voivodeships, or provinces. “In just a few weeks we will travel visa-free in these regions,” he said.
In his words, the document has already been squared between Russia and Poland and adopted by the European Commission, now it is to be approved by the European Parliament and European Union countries.
Under the agreement, visa-free travel regime will be extended to the entire Kaliningrad region and an equivalent territory in Poland, which exceeds the zone of 30 kilometers from the border provided by the European Union norms of small border traffic.
