KALUGA, October 15 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Tuesday he hoped no entry-visa regime would be imposed between Russia and Ukraine.
Speaking with journalists after his talks with Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov, the Russian prime minister said the visa issue had not been raised at their meeting. “The visa subject is outside the agenda,” he said. “I hope a situation like this [the visa regime] will not happen.”
The question about a possible visa regime was provoked by the fact that the sides had failed to find common language on the most pressing bilateral issues, including parameters of future cooperation in the light of Kiev’s plans to sign an association agreement with the European Union, and gas cooperation between the two countries.
