This was said by President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko during the Q&A session at Kyiv National Taras Shevchenko University on Friday, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrinform.
"I am totally assured that 40 or 50 deputies who do not vote for these laws have no right to deprive 45 million of citizens of their right for visa-free travel to Schengen countries," Poroshenko said.
He added that this right has been long fought for by a team of Ukrainian diplomats and officials.
"They have won this right. This is why we cannot be detached, we have to press on the Verkhovna Rada to make it vote for the remaining laws," the head of state stressed.
