President Petro Poroshenko reminded that Ukraine has been reaching the EU visa waiver for a long time and has fulfilled 144 items of the Plan. “Today, Ukraine has completely registered its break up with the Russian empire. We should perceive that in a philosophical way. It is a withdrawal from more than 300 hundred years of history that started with the Pereyaslav Council. Today, Ukraine returns home,” the Head of State noted in the interview to 1+1 TV channel.

“We must return Ukrainians their history. That is why today’s decision of the EU is so important. A long process has been completed. First of all, it goes about the return of Ukraine to its historic place among the European countries, not only about the visa-free border crossing,” he said.

Moreover, as stated by Petro Poroshenko, the introduction of the visa-free regime by the EU is important for the policy of de-occupation of Crimea and Donbas, as it creates additional motivation for the residents of the occupied territories to come back.
