 There will be no additional requirements for Ukraine – Foreign Ministry on visa-free regime

European Commission Report on the implementation of visa-free regime plan for Ukraine is final and assumes no additional requirements for Kyiv.

Deputy Foreign Minister for European Integration Olena Zerkal said at a briefing today, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrinform.

"All these bold speculations and interpretations of the obligations of Ukraine, have nothing to do with what the report really means. This report is a final one; it won't be expanded. We continue to work only within the framework of the Association Agreement," Zerkal said.

She explained that the report contains a recommendation of the European Commission for the EU Council to repeal obtaining of the short-term visas by Ukrainian citizens who wanted to visit the European Union.

Henceforth, these recommendations will be considered and discussed on the official level by different EU members.

"If a question arises, if some countries have doubts about the readiness of Ukraine to ensure, for example, border security, this issue shall be discussed once again," Zerkal clarified the procedure.
