KIEV, November 27 (Itar-Tass) — Ukraine seeks EU membership, therefore abolition of visa rules for its citizens in the future is a natural process, a Foreign Ministry official said on Tuesday.
“We take titanic efforts to adjust the Ukrainian legislation to the standards and norms of the European Union,” the Ministry’s spokesman, Alexander Dikusarov, told a news conference on Tuesday. “Therefore in our opinion it is naturally will be taken into account by the European side and Ukraine will get visa-free rules.”
Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s special envoy, Anvar Azimov, noted that “this will be politically wrong if the EU agrees on visa-free rules with Ukraine before it does this with Russia.”
Dikusarov noted that “every person has the right to express his/her own point of view” emphasizing that both Ukraine and Russia deserve abolition of visas with the EU.
Along with this the diplomat emphasized that it would be logic if visas are at first abolished for countries aspiring to the EU membership.
