MOSCOW, July 4. /TASS/. Kiev can hardly expect the European Union to introduce visa-free travel with Ukraine in the near future, Russia’s Ambassador to the EU Vladimir Chizhov told the Moscow-Brussels video linkup on Monday.
"Firstly, the EU does not think so (that Ukraine has complied with all conditions for visa-free travel - TASS)," the diplomat noted. "Secondly, the overall situation in the EU affected, first and foremost, by the migrant crisis is not in favor of visa-free travel with anyone."
"Now there are three countries in relation to which the European Union has certain political commitments. These are Georgia, Ukraine and Turkey. In all fairness, it should be said that Georgia has made the biggest progress in terms of meeting the criteria, but it was told to wait for the time being too, so this is not a question of the near future," Chizhov said.
