KIEV, May 24 (Itar-Tass) - Ukrainian parliament-appointed Premier Arseny Yatsenyuk, not waiting for results of the presidential elections, said that the new president would pay the first visit to Brussels.
"We will surely have a legally-elected president who will pay his first visit to the capital of united Europe and sign the document on the zone of free trade with the European Union," the government's press service quoted Yatsenyuk as saying.
The parliament-appointed premier also beforehand said the forthcoming elections would be "fair and transparent". "It will be expression of will of Ukraine’s west, east, north and south, a fair and unobstructed choice," he said.
At the same time, he did not give promises in public to suspend the continuing so-called "antiterrorist" operation in the east of the country at least on the vote day.
