KIEV, April 25. /TASS/. Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko said on Sunday he is sure the European Union will finally abandon entry visas for Ukrainians.
"I don’t see any threats that Ukraine might be denied a visa-free regime. I am confident Ukrainians will be travelling to the European Union with biometric passports already in the second half of the current year," he said in his traditional weekly televised interview.
However he did not rule out that "theoretically" the Council of Europe might not endorse the visa-free agreement. Nevertheless, he said during his numerous foreign visits and international contacts in the past two weeks he urged Europe to speed up the process of giving Ukraine a visa free travel regime.
