European Commission Officially Offers Visa-Free Travel to Ukraine

European Commission Chief spokesperson Margaritis Schinas

The European Commission has officially offered visa-free travel to Ukrainians, the Kommersant newspaper reported Wednesday.

"The European Commission today proposes a visa-free regime for citizens of Ukraine," European Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas announced in Brussels on Wednesday.

It was previously reported that the European Commission intended to propose visa-free travel to Ukraine, despite the outcome of a Dutch referendum on April 6.

More than 60 percent of voters in the Netherlands voted against the European Union pursuing closer ties with Ukraine, a move previously approved by other member states, Kommersant reported.
