"Poroshenko shares way to return Donbass and Crimea"
The residents of Donbass and Crimea will want to rejoin Ukraine after it obtains a free-visa regime with the European Union. Such are the words of the president of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, as provided by his official website.
In his opinion, Ukrainians will obtain the fight to visit the EU without visas in the next year, and this will also influence the attitude of Donbass and Crimea residents.
“This is an additional incentive for returning the government to Donbass, and one of the first elements of the strategy to return Crimea. We should win the opinions of Crimeans in this fight, because in Donbass, I am sure, it will be easier.”
He also added that the residents of Donbass and Crimea will also be able to receive biometric passports for enjoying visa-free travel to Europe.
Petro Poroshenko once again fixed a date for the achievement of a visa-free regime by Ukraine. This time, the president of the country is sure, Ukrainians will realize their dream of a visa-free regime in 2016.
“A visa-free regime is a key and important stage; it is an historic step, a victory, a real demonstration of confidence in Ukraine after its ‘revolution of dignity’ and after the beginning of the decisive steps demonstrated by the country and the Ukrainian people,” he stated.
The head of state added that the future plans of Ukraine include the simplification of the visa regime with Australia, Canada, and the USA.
