It is vital to ensure a positive vote on 18 February in
Parliament for legislation necessary to introduce a visa-free regime with the
EU: "There cannot be any political dispute. This is what Ukrainian
citizens were fighting for in the Maidan events, this is our European dream.
And a real step to achieve our European dream is the introduction of the
visa-free regime", said Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk during
the governmental meeting on Wednesday, 17 February.
He reminded that the Government had drafted all the
necessary bills, the President had submitted these
laws to the Parliament.
The Prime Minister also stressed that a few weeks before,
during a session of the Parliament, when those laws were voted in the first
reading, there were made certain exclusions that do not comply with directives
of the European Union.
"Therefore we should now again get back to considering
the legislation having been submitted to the Parliament. And tomorrow it is vital
to ensure a positive vote procedure. Whoever supports the law on visa-free
regime in Ukraine are really Pro-European democratic forces", he urged.
"It is time to remove artificial political hysteria,
stop fighting for power, while it is time for everyone to unite in a real fight
for our successful country", said Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
