"The EU sees it as a very important element of Ukraine's anti-corruption program. I would like you to consider this issue as soon as possible," the president said, addressing the MPs.
According to him, every political party promised their voters to do that.
"You have put it down in the Coalition Agreement. Pluck up courage and make this decision. I am hopeful that people's deputies will act as responsible statesmen and will not try to restore the caste of untouchables preserving privileges for several hundred MPs at the cost of visa-free regime for millions of Ukrainians," the head of state emphasized.
